Spirituality for a Catholic Christian Lifestyle

Welcome to this spiritual website for all people of good will, and especially for fellow and/or potential Catholic Christians!  While it was at Antioch that the followers of Christ were called Christians for the first time, it was also at Antioch where Christians called themselves Catholics for the first time. The designation Catholic Christian can also be found in the Confessions of Saint Augustine, who is one of the greatest Catholic Christians of all time.

This website contains my personal reflections as a Catholic Christian.  I hope that my prayerful words will introduce you to the Catholic Christian lifestyle and invite you to identify yourself as a Catholic Christian as well. In this website, I will also share with you the spiritual resources that have helped me embrace Catholic Christianity as my spiritual path forward. First and foremost, I recommend to you the ChristLife course, which is an important background theme throughout this entire website. Thank you for joining me on this spiritual quest by prayerfully exploring this website so that you can come to know, love, and serve Christ more fully in your daily life as well.

Invitation. Won’t you please join me in identifying yourself and living out your life as a faithful Catholic Christian believer? Catholic Christianity is the only lifestyle that is really worth living, both now and forever. As we pursue this spiritual lifestyle, we move beyond conventional “churchianity” to intentional discipleship, as forgiven sinners who not only know about Christ, but who truly know Christ personally in the community of his church. For more about this spiritual transformation from nominal “churchianity” to committed Christianity, please click here.

So, let us look upward in faith, move forward in hope, and lead onward in love to new life in Christ! As Catholic Christians who are praying, learning, and serving together in the community of the church as intentional disciples of Christ, we are assured that we are on the right side of salvation history. For questions about this website and its spirituality, or for information about spiritual direction and pastoral counseling, please click here. In the meantime, let us remember each other often in prayer. Thank you and God bless you always! – Father James Dvorscak
