OPINION / COMMENTARY
June 16, 2017  |  By ANDY BARTON
Lists are everywhere in what I have been reading lately.  From “The Best Books of Summer” to “15 Ways to Improve Personal Finances,” there is no shortage of ideas this time of year of ways to spend our time and enhance our lives.  In the spirit of those lists, I thought I would do my own this month around ways to integrate charity into daily routine.  Many of you will find you are already engaged in one or more of these activities.  Not everything is for everyone, but hopefully it will give some ideas, spur some thought, and maybe even conversation.

As we will soon celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, it has always been a special time in the liturgical year for me. As a former Protestant minister, it was the Eucharist — the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Christ, present in bread and wine, the “source and summit of the Christian life” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 322) that drew me inexorably into the Catholic Church. To receive Holy Communion is still the greatest gift on this earth, and it is always an experience to be treasured.
