Welcome, this is The Way of the Heart!
Today you are going to start a different path, this one does not run with your feet, it is done with your heart, or better, you go with your heart to then mobilize your feet, your hands, your thoughts, your intentions, your actions, all your be.
It is a renewed experience of the Apostleship of prayer that Pope Francis has promoted in recent years, and that offers you a new way of being and living. A different alternative to live your faith. It is a path that will help you to awaken, to be more attentive and to discover how you can concretely go out in your life, as the Supreme Pontiff suggests: "From the globalization of indifference and entering into a mission of compassion for the world" .
Maybe you're wondering: what is The Way of the Heart? and how is it that by praying I can mobilize my life?
Well, this is a journey that will help us to focus our life on Jesus, to have a deeper relationship of friendship with him, like the one the apostles had and to be more available in a compassionate mission in favor of the brothers.
It is then a path with Jesus in Apostolic availability!
This is what is called the document approved by Pope Francis that gathers the fruits of the discernment of four years of work at the international level of the Apostleship of Prayer. Today recreated as the World Network of the Pope's Prayer, to give a missionary face to this Apostolate.
Now you start being part of it. It is a path that you do personally, full of surprises, questions, prayers, contemplations, activities, commitments, challenges, goals. With some flat terrains, others in rise, with geographies sometimes desert and others of abundant nature.
Even if you go through it alone, you really are not ... The Pope's World Network of Prayer will be with you. You will feel walking with all of us who are united to her, you will feel walking with Jesus.
The World Network of Prayer of the Pope offers you a line, but the steps, the footprints and the definition of this path will depend on you. How far do you want to go? What are you made of?
Now, to be Apostles and missionaries it is necessary, first, to forge a disciple's heart. It is precisely here that the spiritual itinerary The Way of the Heart acquires all its strength, all its value and beauty. It is a true school of the heart.
