There are many who consider Sunday worship the extent of their duties as Catholics. They will attend Mass consistently, give alms, and pray faithfully during the hour or so that they spend in God's presence each weekend. But when we are called to serve God, we are called to serve seven days a week, not just on our day of rest.
Everyday discipleship is frequently counter to our surrounding culture. It demands a self-giving love from us that pushes us to put others before ourselves. In a culture of "me, me, me", it can be difficult to even know how to do this, let alone do it in a crowd of people all moving in a different, self-serving direction.
Depending on your vocation, everyday discipleship may look a little different. Mothers at home with their children cannot serve that way a diocesan priest can. A single man can perform acts of a service that a cloistered nun cannot (and vice versa). Regardless of your vocation, there are seven things we can try and incorporate into our day-to-day in an effort to be active disciples of Christ every single day.
