March 8: The Voice of the Authentic Self

Day 20


If you do nothing else in this lifetime, learn to listen to the gentle voice within you.


Resolve to take some time each day to withdraw from the crazy, noisy, busy world into the sanctuary of the classroom of silence to work out who you are, what you believe, and what you are here for.

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 107–109 (paperback version) or pages 111–113 (hardcover version).

Tip: The Mass Journal is a great way to focus your week at Sunday Mass.


Jesus, open my heart to listen to the gentle voice inside, so I might act in accord with what is good, true, noble, and beautiful.
