  1. Lunch dates: You may not be able to make it every day, but at 12:05 St. Mary’s Parish has daily Mass. He is just there waiting for us to come by and see Him.

  2. Admitting failures. This keeps you honest with yourself and others. Frequent Confession is highly recommended by popes and saints. Although only necessary in the state of mortal sin, it is the source of tremendous grace to continue striving for a deeper relationship with Christ.

  3. Rolling some beads. This 1000 year tradition encompasses both the meditative and vocal practice of prayer by reflecting on the life of Christ. October is a great time to start a renewed zeal and practice of praying the Rosary.

  4. Buy momma some flowers. There are plenty of grottos, statues, paintings, churches, and pictures of Jesus’ Mother around town. He would buy flowers for His Mom, maybe it is a good idea to get some flowers for Mary too.

  5. I got your back. Help your neighbor carry a cross with the Spiritual or Corporeal Works of Mercy. Whether educating children in the Life of God, feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, fraternally correcting, or forgive offenses willingly, remember Mother T’s Five Word Reminder, “you did it for me.”
