We shood challenge and encourage one another to live in obedience to Jesus, desiring to be examples to the faithful and to adorn with holy living the Ministry entrusted to us. Mindful of the admonition of Scripture, and the table of duties in the catechism, we will strive earnestly to:
Be prepared to confess Christ before the world and to give testimony to the hope that is in us. (cf. 1 Peter 3:15).
Lead a life worthy of the calling to which we have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (cf. Ephesians 4:1-3).
Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God (cf. Micah 6:8).
Exercise authority wisely, not for personal whim or gain, but in praise of the Father who by the power at work in us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine (cf. Ephesians 3:20).
Live as a responsible citizen, pray for those in authority(cf .1 Timothy 2:1-2).
Defend the poor, the weak, the orphaned, the fatherless, the widowed. (cf. James 1:27).
Be of a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith (cf. 1 Timothy 1:5).
Speak the truth in love (cf. Ephesians 4:15).
Live with one's conscience captive to the Word of God, praying for the courage to speak and act by such a conscience.
Be chaste and pure, faithful in marriage and celibate in singleness, according to the norm of Scripture and the tradition of the Church.
Be above reproach, of one spouse, temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher, no drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, and no lover of money. (cf. 1 Timothy 3:2-3).
Manage our own household well -- caring, just, and loving to husband or wife; loving and respecting our children, teaching them to be obedient and respectful (cf. 1 Timothy 3:4).
Live simply and wisely as good stewards of personal resources and God's good earth.
Live in all things to yield the fruit of the Spirit: love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23).
Rejoicing in the fellowship of all the saints, we commend ourselves, one another and our whole life to Christ, our Lord.

About The Historic Apostolic Succession
FROM THE CANON LAW CODE AND OTHER DOCUMENTS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
St. Augustine of hippo from On Baptism and On The Correction of the Donatists
When these criteria are met, a Bishop is within the Historic Apostolic Succession:
Form: The consecration must be done using the Rites of the Church and in the context of the Eucharistic liturgy to be valid. This is to emphasize the connection of the ordaining Bishop(s) within the Church as a Eucharistic Community.
Matter: There must be an actual laying on of hands by a Bishop during the liturgy. A Prayer is not sufficient in and of itself.
Minister: The one who performs the consecration must be a validly consecrated Bishop within the Historic Apostolic Succession.
Intention: The intent of the laying on of hands and the prayer within the liturgy must be to ordain the person as a Bishop of the Church.
Canon 844.3 Canon Law Code of the Roman Catholic Church (1983)
"Catholic ministers may lawfully administer the sacraments of penance, the Eucharist and anointing of the sick to members of the Eastern Churches not in full communion with the Catholic Church, if they spontaneously ask for them and are properly disposed. The same applies to members of other Churches which the Apostolic See judges to be in the same position as the aforesaid Eastern Churches so far as the sacraments are concerned."
Declaration: Dominus Jesu, Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith The Vatican, August 6, 2000
"17. Therefore, there exists a single Church of Christ, which subsists in the Catholic Church, governed by the Successor of Peter and by the Bishops in communion with him. The Churches which, while not existing in perfect communion with the Catholic Church, remain united to her by means of the closest bonds, that is, by Apostolic Succession and a valid Eucharist, are true particular Churches. Therefore, the Church of Christ is present and operative also in these Churches, even though they lack full communion with the Catholic Church…"
UNITATIS REDINTEGRATIO, DECREE ON ECUMENISM, POPE JOHN - PAUL II NOV 21, 1964
"These Churches, although separated from us, yet possess true sacraments and above all, by apostolic succession, the priesthood and the Eucharist, whereby they are linked with us in closest intimacy. Therefore some worship in common (communicatio in sacris), given suitable circumstances and the approval of Church authority, is not only possible but to be encouraged."
Apostolicae Curae papal bull, Pope Leo XIII (1896)
"... where an appropriate Sacramental minister performs the sacramental ritual using the correct matter and form, with no appearance of jest or simulation, he is presumed with moral certainty to have acted validly."

Canon 215 - The Christian faithful are at liberty freely to found and direct associations for purposes of charity or piety or for the promotion of the Christian vocation in the world and to hold meetings for the common pursuit of these purposes.
Canon 216 gives us the right to promote or sustain apostolic action "...all the Christian faithful have the right to promote or sustain apostolic action even by their own undertakings, according to their own state and condition."

Prayer to the Precious Cross
Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered ! Let those who hate Him flee from before His face ! As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish. As wax melts before the fire, so let sinners perish before the face of those who love God and sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say joyfully : Rejoice! Most precious in Life - creating Cross of the Lord, which chases demons away through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ who was nailed for you, descended into hell and having trampled down the power of the devil, gave to us His precious Cross for the routing of all enemies. Help me forever, most precious in life - creating Cross of the Lord , with the Holy Lady Virgin Theotokos and all the Saints. Amen .

Apostolic succession - the line of bishops stretching back to the apostles.
All Catholic bishops, throughout the whole world, are part of a lineage that goes back to the time of the apostles.
The role of apostolic succession is to preserving the true doctrine that is illustrated in the Bible. To ensure that the apostles' teachings would be passed down after the deaths of the apostles, Paul told Timothy, "[W]hat you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also" (2 Tim. 2:2). In this passage, Paul refers to the first three generations of apostolic succession - Paul's own generation, Timothy's generation, and the generation Timothy would teach.
In Papal utterances regarding the Orthodox, we are called ". . . Orthodox brothers of the Catholic faith which by God's grace we share." Pope John Paul refers to the Orthodox churches as ". . . sister Catholic churches . . ."
