This simple prayer begins by acknowledging the person of Christ, asking that He make His presence known to us here and now...
We pray that Jesus reveals Himself to us in our joys, our sorrows, our work, our relationships, our boredom, and our reality.
“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.”
This podcast is the fruit of a simple prayer that has carried me for the last six years: "Jesus, reveal yourself to me today in a real and concrete way."
I invite you to join us as we embark on the path towards a relationship with Jesus Christ that will change everything.
No matter where you are in your faith, we have created Concrete Catholic with you in mind.
Children know well what we often forget...just keep it simple. You do not need a fancy degree to encounter Christ in your daily life, just a willingness to try.
Balancing a career, kids, and a mortgage is not easy. Even though Jesus never promised "easy," He did promise that He would never abandon us.
Life is hard, and sometimes the darkness seems to surround us all. We know no matter how bad things seem to be, that Jesus has conquered all, even death itself.
We will never spam you or distribute your information. Our Mailchimp sign-up helps us communicate our hopes and dreams with you for Concrete Catholic as we grow.
Concrete Catholic covers the essential aspects of forming a relationship with Jesus Christ, from prayer to encounter to sharing the Good News. God comes to us in the everyday, not just in the religious moments.
Sometimes we encounter Jesus, but we have no idea how to share what we've experienced. We'll walk through how to share what you've encountered with your friends and your family.
Through the Incarnation, Christ took on our flesh, and entered into every experience of our lives. He longs to meet us in our work, in our families, in our joys, in our sorrows.
Life is complicated, but prayer doesn't have to be. We approach life (and begin our Podcast) with a simple prayer: "Jesus, reveal yourself to me today in a real and concrete way." That's it.
Keep your eyes fixed on Christ. Literally. Find an image of Jesus, and give yourself time to simply look at Him, and let Him look at you. This simple exercise puts everything in perspective, letting Jesus be our focus, and allowing the noise to fade away.
This step, while obvious, must still be said. This is a state of "being," not a state of "doing." With your eyes fixed on Christ, it becomes natural to ask Jesus to reveal Himself in the circumstances of your life.
Expect the unexpected and allow the Lord to enter into your surroundings. Very often, we have a specific idea in our minds how (and where) Christ will come to us. Anticipation is not just about seeking out Christ, but allowing ourselves to be found by Him.
“The truly interesting question for man is neither logic, a fascinating game, nor demonstration, an inviting curiosity. Rather, the intriguing problem for man is how to adhere to reality, to become aware of reality.”
