In this episode, I pick the top 3 practices I want to adopt into my daily spiritual practices from a book Tan Books is circulating on social media called “25 Ways to Become a Saint.” It’s a compilation from a spiritual classic “The School of Jesus Crucified” by Fr. Ignatius of the Side of Jesus, Passionist.

Excerpt from the book:
“PRAYER BY WHICH A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN MAY DEDICATE HIMSELF TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
Most holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God, although most unworthy of being our servant yet inspired with confidence in your extreme goodness, and filled with an earnest desire of serving you, I, (name), this day choose you, in the presence of your Son, of my Angel Guardian, and of the whole Court of Heaven, for my singular Advocate, Mother, and Queen, and I firmly purpose,
with the assistance of your prayers, to serve you constantly, and to do all that lies in my power to cause thee to be served by all men. I therefore humbly beseech you, O most compassionate Mother, through the Precious Blood of your holy Son, to receive me as your devout patron and your servant forever, assist me in all my actions, and obtain grace for me, that I may so regulate all my thoughts, words, and deeds, as never to offend your Son Jesus. Forget me not, and never forsake me, either now or at the hour of my death. Amen.”
