Get In Your Spiritual Game

Spiritual Workout of a Former SaintLast weekend I attended a men's conference at a local parish. The keynote speaker was Danny Abramowicz, a former wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints.

He talked about his life in football and his re-conversion to the Faith. A fascinating story.

He also introduced everyone to his "Spiritual Workout" which is included in his book. If you like sports analogies and are looking for a step-by-step manual for improving your spiritual life, this is a great book. Each chapter starts off with a section about football and then relates it to spiritual growth. There is a brief timeout section to consider the main points and then each chapter ends with a quick action plan.

There isn't anything groundbreaking in this book as Catholic spiritual growth has been written about countless times over the past 2000 years. This is just a unique spin on the topic from a former All-Pro NFL receiver who likes to mix the Faith and football.

I’ve been to a men’s conference also with Danny as a speaker. He is an excellent speaker, and is very inspirational.

I WAS AT A ATHLETIC MINISTRY CONFERENCE THIS PAST SATURDAY WHERE DANNY WAS THE SPEAKER. HE WAS GREAT. GAVE A VERY INSPIRING TALK. IT WAS A SHAME THAT MORE PEOPLE COULDN’T BE PRESENT.
