Letters from a Pastor to His People- February 16, 2020
All the priests of the Archdiocese gathered together with the Cardinal a couple weeks ago for an all-day seminar. We do this about three times a year. In the afternoon we heard a talk on forming good habits, and the speaker mentioned "mindfulness training." Basically, if you can pause mentally when you are in the midst of a certain habit (smoking, eating, compulsively checking your texts, etc.), be mindful of what you are feeling and experiencing (something that is actually not that satisfying), you'll begin the neural re-networking process to break the bad habit.
