Welcome to Catholic Engaged Encounter, a faith-centered community rooted in the transformative teachings of the Bible. In this sermon, we delve into the powerful words of Romans 12:9-16, which provide a valuable guide for living a fulfilling and authentic life in Christ.

Segment 1: Experiencing the Love of Christ

In Romans 12:9, the Apostle Paul reminds us of the importance of genuine love - a love that is sincere, without hypocrisy. At Catholic Engaged Encounter, we believe that this love serves as the foundation for all aspects of our lives, including our relationships, service, and commitment to our faith. By fully experiencing the love of Christ, we are empowered to love others unconditionally.

Sub-heading 1.1: Nurturing Authentic Relationships

One of the core messages of Romans 12:10 is the call to show love to one another through genuine affection and honoring each other. Our Catholic Engaged Encounter community recognizes the significance of authentic relationships and strives to cultivate an environment where individuals can connect deeply and meaningfully.

Sub-heading 1.2: Strengthening Our Faith Through Service

In Romans 12:11, Paul urges us to serve the Lord with enthusiasm and passion. At Catholic Engaged Encounter, we believe in the transformative power of service. Through our various outreach programs and community engagement initiatives, we encourage individuals to live out their faith by actively serving others. By doing so, we not only strengthen our own relationship with Christ but also uplift and inspire those around us.

Segment 2: Embracing Diversity and Unity

The subsequent verses in Romans 12:12-16 emphasize the importance of unity and embracing the uniqueness of each individual within the body of Christ. At Catholic Engaged Encounter, we strive to create an inclusive and welcoming community where individuals from all walks of life can come together to grow in faith and support one another.

Sub-heading 2.1: Cultivating Joy and Hope

Romans 12:12 encourages us to rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, and be persistent in prayer. These verses inspire us at Catholic Engaged Encounter to foster an environment of joy and hope, even in the face of challenges. We believe that embracing the teachings of Christ enables us to find strength and resilience in times of difficulty.

Sub-heading 2.2: Extending Hospitality and Compassion

As mentioned in Romans 12:13, showing hospitality and extending compassion are essential traits of a faithful community. At Catholic Engaged Encounter, we actively embrace these principles, ensuring that everyone feels welcome and valued. By creating an atmosphere of genuine care and support, we strive to exemplify Christ's teachings in both our words and actions.

Sub-heading 2.3: Embracing Diversity in Unity

Romans 12:16 reminds us to live in harmony with one another, regardless of our differences. At Catholic Engaged Encounter, we celebrate the richness of diversity within our community, recognizing that it is through unity that we can truly fulfill our purpose as disciples of Christ. By embracing and honoring the unique perspectives and backgrounds of each individual, we foster an environment that is inclusive, empowering, and affirming for all.


In conclusion, Catholic Engaged Encounter is dedicated to living out the transformative teachings of Romans 12:9-16. Through our emphasis on love, authentic relationships, service, unity, and the celebration of diversity, we strive to create a faith-centered community that empowers individuals to live out their faith in a meaningful and impactful way. Join us on this inspiring journey as we explore the depths of Romans 12:9-16 and discover the transformative power of Catholic Engaged Encounter in your own life and community.
