About the Book
Within every human soul lies the heart of a priest. This priestly potential is like a seed in the soil of our soul waiting to sprout. We find this truth revealed at the end of the Book of Revelation in The New Testament. It is there that we read that all human beings have been made into priests because we can see God in everything, in everyone we encounter. In the 'New Jerusalem,' there is no more temple or church; everywhere becomes a place to encounter God. This means that to become priestly is actually the destiny of every human heart. It is implanted in us as a seed. Our job is to water this seed of becoming and align ourselves with its flowering. In the present work "From Disciples to Apostles," Rev. Patrick Kennedy describes this seed in us, this seed of our true humanity, as a rose seed. He then asks us to imagine its flowering - that Jesus is actually the rose of our humanity, the one in whose image and likeness we are all to become. The journey Rev. Kennedy then skillfully guides us on is a journey that leads us not only to our priestly nature, but to our highest becoming. We are all called to become in the likeness of Jesus. In this light then, cultivating a relationship with Christ Jesus means to align ourselves with the flowering of our truest potential. As Rev. Kennedy beautifully describes, seeking His presence, praying to Him for help, asking for His guidance and allowing His power to work through us gives us the 'water' we need for our truest selves.
