(For those guys who struggle with reading, it is also available as an audio recording. If you sign up these readings will just go to your email. IF YOU GO TO DAILY MASS YOU WILL GET THESE READINGS AUTOMATICALLY!)
2.) Prayer stays the same: Keep a log of your prayer life. At least 10 minutes of prayer a day. This can include:
- Normal 'talking to God' prayer.
- The Rosary
- The Jesus Prayer
Remember to rate how focused you were during prayer. If it was good, it counts as a full 1, if it was so-so, give yourself a half, and if you were not focused at all, a 0.
3.) No Simulator! Rather: Spiritual Discipline Habit
Do you wear a crucifix? Here I share my morning ritual for putting on the crucifix, which I think will be very helpful to my brother saints-in-training. Give it a shot.
Mark 8 verses 34-35 (Jesus' own words)
If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it.
4.) Keep notes on Righteousness. How well did you follow through on your faith during the week?
What was main victories. Defeats?
5.) Going to Mass: If you received the Eucharist during Mass you have your soul fully restored. If you are prevented from receiving the Eucharist because of a mortal sin, well, then... get off your behind and go to confession!
6.) Have profile sheet, dice (two six-sided dice), pencil and eraser ready.
"The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness." Pope Benedict XVI
