Dr. Tom and Kari Curran discuss the gift of recalling childhood stories and making memories rooted in faith. The Currans talk about Tom’s trip home to Boston, how they celebrate birthdays, the Epiphany house blessing, and the use of sacramentals.
Dr. Tom Curran humbly shares stories from the last week about growing in the virtue of humility: the loss of Epiphany Holy Water, forgetting the seven deadly sins, engaging with old classmates on Facebook, and more!
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.
