Devout Catholics pray.🙏

 So do Dynamic Catholics, who also engage in the other three signs that include:

  • Study

According to Matthew Kelly (2012), reading👓 Catholic books📚 regularly draws us closer to our 🌞faith.

All it takes is just five pages📖 per day …

You’ll be amazed at how much you learn about our religion and answer such questions as:

  • Why do we practice certain rituals in Catholicism?

One Catholic💒 worth studying is 😇 Saint Pope John Paul II (who passed away exactly a decade ago as of this month and has his 95th birthday next month) ~ who my parents visited in 🇮🇹Italy⛲️ during my dad’s USAF✈️ tour of Europe (where I was born in 🇩🇪Germany)!

As we reach our final moments on 🌍Earth🌏, we still won’t know EVERYTHING, but we can die⛪️ trying to absorb as much information as we can to bring us closer to His☝️ 👼Kingdom!

Thirsty Thursday: Dynamic Catholicism

My 🍳Easter🐇 season read …

 

The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic💒

  1. Prayer🙏
  2. Study📚
  3. Generosity🙌
  4. Evangelization😇

 

From the same author of Rediscovering Catholicism📖 that I read last year during Lent, Matthew Kelly conducted a 🔭study🔬, and according to his 📊results📈, only 7% master ALL of the Above. I’d like to become part of that 📉statistic✅, and as someone who demonstrates the top three, I also pursue to practice the fourth by bringing more people to the faith and increasing that percentage.

Key points that I’ve found here so far that confirms my own actions include:

  • Intentionality ~ so I’m delighted that I’ve been on point with preventing distractions by disconnecting from my devices and social media to keep up with my prayers, priorities and practices!
  • Spiritual Health ~ in which Kelly includes a road behavior barometer as an indicator that makes sense of how our mood reflects our joy or discontent

☝️GOD bless you all!✌️
