Want to be holier?

Here are the first five in the list Father Pine provides in the video:

  • Prayer: at least twenty minutes a day, and in the morning rather than the evening
  • Sacraments: frequent Holy Communion, regular Confession (once a month?), living our baptism
  • Study: learn about the mystery of God, picking up the basics of philosophy and theology (yes, even as a lay person)
  • Penance: a measure of asceticism as a means of eliminating distractions in our pursuit of God
  • Friendship: the immediacy of the Christian communion, by which we accompany one another on the common path
