Chene Heady was a believing Catholic whose daily concerns were shaped primarily by forces other than his faith–work, financial decisions, scheduling conflicts, long hours and limited interaction with his wife and daughter. Then he tried an experiment that dramatically rearranged his life. After reading about the importance of the Church’s liturgical year, Heady took up the challenge to live as though the Church’ calendar, not the secular, stood at the center of his life. Every day for a year, he observed the Church’s seasons and feasts, and meditated on the Church’s daily readings. As he did so, he found that his life and his relationships, became more meaningful and fruitful. Paper.
