88: Dr. Greg Teaches Us to "Remember Your Death"
05.04.2020 - By Do Something Beautiful
Dr. Greg Bottaro, Executive Director of the CatholicPsych Institute, is back to talk to Leah about some timeless truths that the COVID-19 pandemic is unearthing for a lot of us.
Dr. Greg and Leah start by asking "How will you be different after this time?", which is a great question for us all to be asking. Dr. Greg points out that nothing is more revealing about what's inside us than a shake-up in our worlds, and this is a moment where the whole world is being shaken up.
This is a time to be challenged and learn about ourselves, and finding ways to grow in virtue.
This is a time to look at how we approach the concept of death - in fear and anxiety, or to remember that we have a God who has defeated death!
Challenge from Dr. Greg: Take 10 minutes to do absolutely nothing. Not prayer, not listening to music, not talking to anyone, (it's ok if you go for a walk)... but do nothing.
