Upon my arrival at the Los Angeles Religious Ed Congress, I experienced a nonstop kaleidoscope of people, products, and presentations. Overwhelming? A little — but where else can you find so many faith-filled Catholics in one place, and how cool is that?
1. Spend 10 minutes each day reading the Gospels; when you finish all four, start over. Do this for a year.2. Go to confession — once a month. No one achieves mastery without a coach, and none of us sees things as they really are. Try to go to the same priest each time, and ask for some spiritual coaching, one small thing you can work on each month.3. Attend Mass every Sunday — be responsible. Get a small “Mass journal” and each week record the answer to this prayer: “God, in this Mass show me one way I can be a better version of myself this week.”
