The Soul of the Apostolate: Talks by Bishop Vasa


We are very pleased to now provide a series of talks given by His Excellency Bishop Robert Vasa, Coadjutor of the Diocese of Santa Rosa.  His Excellency gave these series of talks while he was the Bishop of the Diocese of Baker, Oregon. 

All the lessons have a focus on Bishop Vasa teaching and preaching using "The Soul of the Apostolate" by Fr. Jean-Baptiste Chautard. 

The Soul of the Apostolate is a spiritual classic written by Dom. Chautard (+1935), a saintly French Trappist monk. This text was the bedside book of Pope St. Pius X and was one of the most widely read spiritual works at the start of the 20th century. If you are not familiar with this spiritual classic, it is well worth reading.

Have you ever wondered why our efforts at sharing and spreading the Faith often have such little effect and influence? How did twelve common men transform the world forever? How could a saint convert a hardened sinner with one look, act or word? This book provides the fundamental answer to these questions.

In this age of relentless activity, it is easy for Christians to over emphasize social projects and good corporal works, and fall into a pattern of human activism. Yet mere activity and material results are NOT sufficient for a successful apostolate. Dom Chautard shows how the very foundation of all our work for Christ and His Church must be the interior life. The disciple of Christ will be an instrument and true channel of God's grace to others (family, friends, world) only in so far as he is rooted in prayer, meditation and the cultivation of the interior life. Without Christ, we can do nothing.
