Now That You Know How to Pray Like a Catholic...
Learn How to "Live Like a Catholic"
with Susan Brinkmann, OCDS
Based on the great mystical classic,  The Interior Castle , written by St. Teresa of Avila,  Live Like a Catholic  is an 8-week course taught by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS, that details the soul’s journey through the seven mansions – or stages – of the spiritual life, which work in tandem with the soul’s growth in prayer. 

In this course, students will learn about: 

1. Attachments to sin
2. The dangers of self-reliance
3. The need for self-knowledge
4. How to handle the devil's ever-evolving tricks
5. What virtues are the most vital for spiritual growth
6. The importance of developing purity of heart
7. What it means to become truly poor in spirit. 

Each week participants have a homework assignment. Instruction will include a once-a-week online class lasting one hour. It will consist of an opening prayer, review and discussion of the homework assignment, a 20 minute lecture, and 15 minutes for Q&A. 

Online sessions for this 8-week course will take place throughout the 2019 Lenten Season on Tuesday evenings at 8:00 PM EST, beginning on March 5th and ending on April 30th. Study materials will be emailed a week prior to each meeting.

***Though Live Like a Catholic is the sequel to Pray Like a Catholic, it is not necessary for participants to have taken Pray Like a Catholic in order to benefit from this course.
