Personal witness

Personal witnessThis personal experience of the lay pastoral ministers who have been and are still, accompanied and assisted by others, teaches them to be patient and compassionate with the disciples they are called to accompany, ‘to find the right way to gain their trust, their openness and their readiness to grow.’

p.28 Australian Catholic Council for Lay Pastoral Ministry. (2018). Faithful Stewards of God's Grace. Parramatta: Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

Lay pastoral ministers empathise with others and offer ‘an explicit witness to the saving love of the Lord’ because they understand that Christ, despite our imperfections, ‘offers us his closeness, his word and his strength, and gives meaning to our lives.’
