ROCKFORD "Where You Can "ALWAYS' Be Sure" PAGE S CALL TO ACTION The difference between the baptized mem- ber and the confirmed member of the body of Christ is the difference between a child and a mature person. The action proper to a child immediately after birth is different from the action which is proper to him when he has come to perfect age. And therefore, by the Sacrament of Con- firmation man is given a spiritual power in Baptism. In Baptism he received power to do those things in the Mystical Body which per- tained to his own salvation. In Confirmation he receives power to do those things which pertain to the spiritual combat with the ene- mies of the faith. A man on reaching maturity begins to look beyond his own personal good to the greater good of the community, as he assumes his rights and obligations as a citizen bound by laws and national traditions. So, too, the ma- ture member of the Mystical Body is superna- turally awakened and alerted to his greater responsibility--the common good of the spirit- ual community of the faithful. It is imperative to the body of Christ that the Children grow up to the spiritual age of mature citizens. St. John Chrysostom writes: "The most perfect rule of Christianity, its exact definition, its peak is this: seek that which is for the benefit of the community. Nothing can make one more Christlike than to look after the welfare of others." As mature members of the Mystical Body it is most important for us to discover the acti- vity which God expects of us. This will be distinctive and personal, and in a sense ex- clusively our own. This is our vocation. We must find the function which, within the Di- vine plan, we are to fulfill. It is against the pattern of God's redemptive plan for the world, that we ought to weigh our gifts and tal- ents in order to know how we shall be able to' use them for the common good of the whole body. God has giv- en them to us for that. We shall take fare not to ruin them by negligence or laziness. We shall not wish to use them for something futile. And we should consider it a sacrilige to serve evil with them. Of whatever order these gifts may be, they have a sa- cred purpose: to serve in the building up of the body of Christ. Pope Plus XII expressed the same idea: "And so we desire that all who claim the Church as their mother should seriously con- Sider that not only the sacred ministers and hose who have consecrated themselves to God in religious life, but other members as well, of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ have the ob- ligation of working hard and constantly for the upbuilding and increase of this Body." Since the whole character of the Mystical Body is apostolic and militant, it follows that any member who shares in its goals and aspir- ation must also fall under its constant need for apostolate.
