Practice Makes Catholic: Moving from a Learned Faith to a Lived Faith Toolbox Series #ad - It is said that practice makes perfect, but what else does practice make? If you ask Joe Paprocki, he’ll say that practice makes Catholic—that is, there are certain distinct practices that make us essentially Catholic. Informative and inviting, for catholics returning to the faith, Practice Makes Catholic is the perfect resource for RCIA candidates and their sponsors, and for all Catholics who want to get to the heart of what their faith is really about.

The problem is that many catholics don’t understand—or at least misunderstand—why we engage in the many practices we do. In practice makes catholic, paprocki addresses the all-important “why” of many Catholic practices by articulating five key characteristics that form our Catholic identity: a sense of sacramentality, a reverence for Tradition, a commitment to community, a respect for the dignity of human life and commitment to justice, and a disposition to faith and hope rather than despair.
