Here is some great spiritual advice from a doctor of the Catholic Church: it's the five paths to repentance. It succinct and easily applicable. Please take a minute and read what St John Chrysostom has to say about it:
St John Chrysostom, Hom. de diabolo tentatore 2, 6 (PG 49, 263-264)
To summarize, the five paths to repentance are:
- condemnation of sins.
- forgiving the sins of those near us.
The goal of course is that we more readily receive the graces of the Holy Eucharist.
St John Chrysostom, pray for us.
