Fit For Heaven
by Father Bob Sherry
It’s summer again. I love summer, but every summer goes so quickly. As a kid, I remember thinking summer break was going to last forever… but it went by so quickly.
What are you going to do this summer? But more importantly, what does God want you to do this summer?
Our God is a God of surprises. We are made in his image, so let’s make this a summer of surprises. In big ways and small ways, let’s find ways to surprise people this summer.
Do something fabulous to surprise your husband, wife, boyfriend, or girlfriend. Do something to surprise your pastor. Do something to surprise your kids. Do something to surprise your neighbors and friends.
Bring the joy of Jesus to people through ordinary, everyday surprises.
And don’t waste the summer. Get outside. Enjoy the fabulous weather. Turn off the technology. Hug your kids. Kiss your spouse. Pray a little more. Read a book.
Allow God to renew you this summer.
Some people only ask for God’s help when times are tough, but it’s important to give all of the glory to God in those championship seasons!
— From “Fit For Heaven” by Trent Beattie
FOREWORD by Mark Teixeira, First Baseman, New York Yankees
Some people look at professional athletes as warriors who aren't afraid of anything and are always on top of the world. Athletes don't need God, right? This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, God is THE reason that I am a professional athlete and have had a long baseball career. First of all, I understand that without my God-given ability, I wouldn't be playing first base for the New York Yankees. That's not exactly a job that you sign up for at a career fair! Second, the ups and downs I have experienced as an athlete are much more manageable because of my relationship with Jesus Christ. In baseball and in life, there are many more disappointments than triumphs, but because God sent his only Son to die for our sins, we have already won the most important competition! The only thing left for us is to accept that victory every day by the way we live and pray.
My hope for readers of this book is that they will understand that the challenges athletes face are the same challenges everybody else faces. We are on the same playing field, and what unites us on the same team is following Jesus Christ through our Catholic faith on a daily basis. Some people only ask for God's help when times are tough, but it's important to give all of the glory to God in those championship seasons! These interviews are a great way for us to glorify God and thank him for all of the many blessings he has bestowed upon us. I know you will enjoy reading the interviews as much as I have.
God Bless You,

Do you know anyone graduating this year? If so, have you shared your pride in their accomplishment?
This year, more than 163,000 teachers graced our Catholic classrooms. These teachers prepared approximately one million students for graduation from seminaries, colleges, high schools, elementary schools, and religious formation programs. Approximately 580,000 of these students received the sacrament of Confirmation during this school year.
Thank you, parents, for continuing to support and sponsor your children’s faith formation.
At Dynamic Catholic, we pray that Confirmation and other education and faith formation has helped (and will continue to help) them grow and build their relationship with Jesus.
This is the time of the year when we hear at Mass Jesus’ great commission: “Go now and make disciples of all nations…” Do you think these graduates will?
Do you think they will “go and make disciples” because they have been won and built into friends of Jesus? Have they let Jesus generate their souls with love; build up their lives with prayer, study, and generosity; and send them out as disciples?
Win, build, send. This is a simple formula for these graduates to become the-best-version-of-themselves and to make the world a better place.
Remember, whoever wants the next generation the most will get them.
Last month, my husband, Marlon, and I attended one of Dr. Allen Hunt’s Passion & Purpose for Marriage events. Dr. Hunt talked about needing to sprinkle forgiveness and grace in your marriage every day. When I got home from the event, I took an empty spice bottle and labeled it, “Forgiveness and grace, sprinkle it everyday!”
A few weeks later, Marlon and I were having a heated disagreement. I went to the bedroom. I thought Marlon went outside, but instead, he brought the jar to the bedroom and said we both needed some of this. So we sprinkled the forgiveness jar on each other.
I can’t believe he remembered it and even grabbed it at the end of the argument. It was sweet and endearing, and it broke the ice so that we could make up and move on with our day.
Thank you, Allen!

Making time for each other isn’t that difficult if you think about how to anchor the time around already established routines at home.
Life is short, and the holidays fly by. Don’t waste this time texting your friends about how crazy your family is making you (even if it’s true). Do your best to be present to them, seek to understand and to love.
Waking up early is a war. It is a battle against the self. You are your enemy. And there is only one way to win the war: Discipline.
When you choose to be the-best-version-of-yourself, when you exercise virtue and strength of character, you impact the world more than you will ever know.
