Catholic Spirituality

This section contains numerous articles on Catholic Spirituality – articles that will help us live our Catholic faith to the full. Being a Catholic is not just about memorizing the Catechism of the Catholic Church. More than just understanding our Faith, it is about the practical, day-to-day living out of our Catholic Faith.

It is about the practical, day-to-day, “how to” of living our Faith. It is about learning how to pray, how to meditate, how to discern God’s will, how to discern our vocation, how to deepen our relationship with Christ through devotion to our Mother, and many other practical disciplines.

May these collection of articles help us to live out our Catholic Faith so that may truly enjoy the fruits of a full Catholic life: true joy, peace and happiness.
