Louise Marie Zavone
Louise Zavone is Executive Secretary to the Bishops Commission for Life, Family & Public Engagement for the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. (@acbc1)
After over three decades of teaching in #Catholic schools and in leadership roles within Catholic education, Louise will support the work of the Bishops Commission for Doctrine and Morals, the Bishops Commission for Ecumenism and Inter-religious Relations, and the Bishops Commission for #Family, Youth and Life.
Her work on behalf of the Bishops Conference in inter-religious relations is a particular area of interest, with Mrs Zavone having been involved in education about world religions. She said, “The Church’s engagement with those of other faiths is a critical part of its outreach with a #society that doesn’t embrace its #Christian roots as warmly as it once did.” REGISTER NOW FOR
AWAKENING Daily Devotions October 2018
Christ is the Head of the great body that is called the Church. He creates that body and, individually, every member of that body; He is the Builder and He is the only One who knows the plan of that building. He does not allow one member in this building to be disproportionally great or small. He gives the proper measure to everything and everyone. Thus, He gives one five talents, another two, and another, one. He measures, and the Holy Spirit pours out His grace accordingly. No one should be angry or envious. No one should be angry, for if he has received less, he will have less to answer for. No one should be envious, for if someone has received more, it is not his, but God's. If he has much, much will be asked of him, as it is said in the divine parable of the talents. O my brethren, let every one of us be conscious of the measure of our gift and our responsibility. Let us respect our gift and the gift of our neighbor, for all gifts are from God and are God's. O Lord Jesus, the great Giver of diverse gifts, to Thee be glory and praise forever. Amen. - St. Nikolai Velimirovich
