A Catholic Guide to Summer Break

Summer break is a time for rest, recreation, and renewal. But what do we do with that space?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary suggests that your day “off” might be the day you need to turn your willpower “on”, and he gives us some concrete advice on how to make sure we’re doing that.

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
