Practical Holiness: Living an Integrated Life

Catholicism has been counter cultural since its very beginning. Just look at what they did to the Founder and most of His first Twelve Followers! In the past two millennia, the Church has experienced an ebb and flow, in some centuries enjoying a golden age. St. John Paul in his speech to the Eucharistic Congress in Philadelphia in 1976 called this era "the final confrontation”. Bishop Olmsted issued his much-discussed exhortation to Catholic men, “Into the Breach” in September 2015. Have we responded? Do we know how to respond? What can you and I do to bring about another "Golden Age" for the Church and for society?
