THE GOOD THAT SHARES ITSELF By Rev. Fr. Abe P. Arganiosa

“Discipleship is basically described as ‘sitting at the feet of the Master’; listening to his every word to easily remember them, to watch his face to memorize each line and, to familiarize with the tone of his voice and the mannerisms of his body. The disciple can then teach the very ideas of the Master, can embody his spirit so that when on his own the vision of the Master can be transferred to another because the disciple has become a master. A disciple is like a student and a soldier personified in one. As a soldier is expected to work, act, fight and execute the will of his commander to the best of his ability so a Catholic is called upon to do his best in everything that he does for self, family, nation and God.” – Fr.
