14 Day "Heroic Minute" Challenge

What is the 14 Day "Heroic Minute" Challenge?

The 14 Day "Heroic Minute" Challenge is a commitment to live out St.oseMarie Escriva's counsel to view the first moment of the day as a decisive one. In the "Heroic Minute", we can begin the day with a victory over our flesh, which are those pesky desires within us that compete with our goal of living virtuously. By starting our day promptly and in prayer, we can set the tone for all the activities which follow. If we live out this "Heroic Minute" faithfully, we can expect to see positive changes in the way we meet other, more difficult challenges throughout the day.
