Order Your Life Toward God

As you seek the Lord and grow in relationship with him through prayer, ask him how he wants you to live in accordance with his will.

Attend Mass every Sunday, and daily if possible. Receive Holy Communion frequently.

Seek to be more like Christ. Receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation frequently.

Make a commitment to grow closer to God every day. Make a daily examination of conscience.

Commit to a daily life of prayer.

Live the Beatitudes.

Witness to Christ in your everyday life by living a life of charity, of sacrifice, of total commitment to him, and by sharing your faith with others.

Be active - serve in your local parish as God is calling you.

Through prayer, seek a life centered on Christ, totally abandoned to him. "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 will find it." (Matt 16:24-25)
