What Does a Blessed Life Look Like?

Someone might have told you that, if you follow Jesus, you’ll be rewarded. But what is that reward? Is it heaven? Is it prosperity, here and now? Fr. Mark-Mary digs into the scriptures to uncover the answer for us—and you might start living your life a bit differently.

Want a whole manual’s worth of practical guidance for the spiritual life? Fr. Mark-Mary’s got you covered. Check out his book Habits for Holiness: Small Steps for Making Big Spiritual Progress.


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.
