Unified Life

A priest remarked to me recently that one way that one can cope with the difficulties of life and all those times when the world overtly intrudes on one’s prayer and meditation life is to have a “unified life”. Don’t necessarily compartmentalize your prayer life in just morning and evening prayer (or whatever your routine is).

Offer everything up as a prayer. Whatever it is you are doing, say something like “I offer this activity to you, Lord, out of love for you and to honor you.” Try and make that a routine. It would sanctify everything, and perhaps keep you from mortal and most venial sins.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
