I learned so very much from this wonderful series. I became aware that God is always with us in everything we do, think & say.
Good Catholic has grown so much since it started with what I believe was the first series, Fatima. I really like how this series, Finding Simplicity, has some questions for us to ponder. It’s also not as long as others witch makes it easier to go back to and reread if needed. Thanks Good Catholic
Love this series and it is only day 1
I really love Finding Simplicity. It is not complicated, it is simple and very deep. Thank you so much… I found I have to improve in many areas, but it has open my mind and I find myself with much more time. Thanks a lot again
Finding simplicity! I’m enjoying this series very much. The tips for living out Simplicity are spot on.
My heart is filled with positive thoughts that I can find simplicity in my life. It is also filled with sadness that my own parish lacks a spiritual shepherd like Fr. Matlak. He is a model of devotion, compassion and reverence. It’s not any wonder that he was chosen (or chose) to join this and other series by The Catholic Company. He is the epitome of what a priest should be. God Bless him and the dedication of those who created this program.
We have listened to this 4 times and will do it again.
Just completed Day 4 of Simplicity series. It is EXACTLY what I was looking for – setting priorities, helping families with small children, creating a “prayer space” – and this is just Day 4! If you’re on the fence about taking this course, jump in with both feet. It is supremely helpful and rewarding.
