5 Things I’ve Learned in 2020

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. In the midst of the uncertainty and chaos of this year, there are still valuable lessons we can learn from our experience. Today, I reflect on 5 things that I have learned this year. 

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


“If we don’t confront evil with the power of the Gospel, then we’re in big trouble.”


  1. Nothing is sound, nothing can be taken for granted. However, we don’t have to live in a state of anxiety or terror because in Christ we find our true happiness. 
  2. We tend toward comfort and complacency. 2020 is an opportunity to grow in virtue and penance. 
  3. All things pass away but God never changes. 
  4. If we don’t confront evil with the power of the Gospel, then we will face more issues. We must confront the issues we face with the beauty, truth, and goodness of God. 
  5. Technology can do some things but it can’t do all things.

Let nothing disturb you, 
Let nothing frighten you, 
All things are passing away: 
God never changes. 
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing; 
God alone suffices.

St. Teresa of Avila
