Daily Lives for Christ

I recently took several suggestions on how to live our daily lives for God and created a top ten list. They are in no particular order, but here are ten ways to live our lives with God as the center. How many do you do?

  1. Pray a morning offering and offer all of your prayers, joys, works, and sufferings of the day to Christ for His glory
  2. Pray at least the morning and evening parts of the Divine Office (Breviary)
  3. Pray the Rosary daily
  4. Forgive those that trespass against us
  5. Celebrate the seasons of the Church by doing something special for each season (Advent, Lent, Septuagesima, Chrsitmastide, Eastertide, etc)
  6. Celebrate your patron saint's feastday as well as for those in your family
  7. Read at least one chapter from Sacred Scripture daily
  8. Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet once a day (best at 3 PM to remember Our Lord's death) as well as the Angelus at 6 AM, Noon, and 6 PM
  9. If possible visit the Blessed Sacrament in adoration or Mass
  10. At dinner light a candle and say grace before and after meals making sure to give thanks to the Lord for His goodness
