The Church takes seriously the call to sanctify all things, even time.
The Catholic significance of days and months is a profound reminder that our lives are finite, and that time should not be squandered.
As the Psalmist said, “teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” Psalms 90:12
Sanctifying Time: The Catholic Meaning of Months
“With all the strength of my soul I urge you young people to approach the Communion table as often as you can. Feed on this bread of angels whence you will draw all the energy you need to fight inner battles. Because true happiness, dear friends, does not consist in the pleasures of the world or in earthly things, but in peace of conscience, which we have only if we are pure in heart and mind.”
-Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
As we’re confessing our sins on a regular basis, and as we’re learning to name all of those ways that we fall short of the glory of God… in time, we learn a named grace in our life and named work of the Holy spirit. It is this paradoxical thing that as we are focused on overcoming sin in our lives and then opening a virtue. It opens us up to be able to connect with how our Lord is working. So consider a weekly or monthly confession to make it become habit, and examine your heart so as to come to the place of spiritual freedom.
