Sound Insight Presentation Edition: On today’s podcast, hear the sixth talk in an eight-part conference presentation: “Revitalizing Your Prayer Life” by Dr. Tom Curran.
Dr. Tom Curran ponders the question, “How did I miss this?” as he reflects on the connection between the theme of reparation and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tom shares insights from Pope Pius XI’s encyclical Most Merciful Redeemer and explains the role of the angel in the mystery of The Agony in the Garden. (Luke 22: 39-46)
Dr. Tom Curran interviews Crystalina Evert, founder of Women Made New Ministries and co-founder of Chastity Project. Crystalina talks about her new book Made New: Healing and Hope for Abuse Survivors and explores the 25 lies blocking abuse victims from the healing they deserve.
Dr. Tom Curran explores the theme of holiness, as the solution and resolution for the challenges of today’s culture. Tom shares stories about showing up AFTER Mass, kneeling while praying the Rosary, genuflection confusion, and talking to a relative of a saint.
Dr. Tom Curran explores twelve ways to transition from a ‘casual’ to reverent participation in the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass: 1.) Refer to the Sacred Liturgy, 2.) Go to confession, 3.) Fast, 4.) Arrive at Mass early, 5.) Bless yourself (consciously), 6.) Dress for a wedding, 7.) Sit in a seat that minimizes distractions, 8.) Genuflect, 9.) Go to Mass at a time that minimizes distractions, 10.) Pray before Communion, 11.) Receive Eucharist on the tongue from a priest, 12.) Kneel with eyes closed and pray in silence after Communion AND after Mass, 13.) Go to Adoration outside of Mass.
