2019 Parish Mission: Seven Habits of Holy, Effective Catholics

St. Joseph Parish Mission - Seven Habits of Holy, Effective Catholics

What does it take to be effective in the Catholic life? Is it enough to go to Mass once a week and confession once a year? Or should lay Catholics be trying to pray the whole Liturgy of the Hours every day? What practices can help a regular Catholic grow without being unrealistic?

St. Josemara Escriva, the "saint of the ordinary," thought a great deal about how lay Catholics should arrange their daily schedule. In this talk, Dr. Bergsma, who follows the spirituality of St. Josemaria, explains seven daily habits of prayer the saint recommended for lay Catholics who want to become spiritually effective.
