As baptized Catholics, we are all called to embrace Christ’s threefold mission as priest, prophet, and king. Part of that mission is to reach to the ends of the earth to evangelize the world and support the poor. And now, participating in that mission is easier than ever. The Missio app is something you can use from your own home without traveling far and wide to help support the overall mission of the Church:
For a limited time, you can enter to win two free tickets to ROME to meet with POPE FRANCIS just by joining the more than 20,000 people who have already joined Missio. You only have TWO MORE DAYS, so enter now here.
On my holiday reading list is Tim Ferriss‘s new Tools of Titans. I’m waiting to receive my copy (Christmas can’t come soon enough), but I wanted to encourage others to read the book even though I haven’t.

Thomas Merton said in No Man is an Island that “We ought to stop taking our conscious plans and decisions with such infinite seriousness.” We all have plans in life, and that is admirable. Goals are important. As some say, though, to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. We need to realize that our ways are not always His ways, and to align them more and more with His will as we are able to discern it.
Today marks the beginning of a discernment period, asking God what is next in life. I feel that I am being called to something else, though I do not know what that might be. Only time will tell, but I intend to use that time wisely. To make sure that I am diligent in prayer and study so as to hear the Lord clearly when and where He calls.
It is always a good time to grow closer to God, and I encourage you to put forth additional effort in that regard. Wherever you are in the spiritual life, you can go deeper–you can listen more, respond more willingly, and find more joy. Embrace the uncertainty and let Him guide you.
