On Spending More Time with Jesus

Have you ever wondered why you have not yet become a saint? If you’re like most people, the answer is simple: you need to spend more time with Jesus.

You want to come to know, love, and serve Jesus the same way you learn to love and stay in love with anybody (your spouse, family members, and close friends), namely, by spending a considerable amount of time with Him on a daily basis.

The seven daily habits are the Morning Offering, Spiritual Reading, the Rosary, Holy Communion, Mental Prayer, the Angelus, and Examination of Conscience.

Lastly, you are not losing time out of your day but rather, in reality, you will gain time. I have never met a person who lived the seven habits on a daily basis who became a less productive worker, a worse spouse, who had less time for friends, or could no longer grow in his cultural life. Quite the contrary, God always rewards those who put him first. Our Lord will multiply your time as he did with those few loaves and fishes that fed the multitude.
