Have you ever thought about the power of having a purpose? Everyone needs something that gets them moving in the morning, keeps them going through the day, and makes them continue to work toward a goal. Take some time to think about the activities you are involved in and how they relate to your personal purpose. For the activities that don't serve your purpose, ask yourself why you continue with them. Perhaps you need to reevaluate your commitments and renew your conviction toward your purpose.
Members are Catholic who are intensely bent on living the interior life
deeply and vigorously. A member is zealous for the salvation and
sanctification of souls, working for them in every kind of apostolate and
