The Heroic Minute

St. Josemaría Escrivá described the "heroic minute" as the very first battle against evil in a Catholic's day:
The battle against sloth. The moment you wake up from sleep, you can be tempted to linger: pressing snooze on the alarm clock, sleeping for just another 15 minutes!

How often do we do this! How much would this help our personal and professional lives!

The "heroic minute" is the moment when you muster up your courage, do not linger in bed and spring up into the day crying to God, "Serviam! I will serve!"

And rising very early, going out, he went into a desert place: and there he prayed. (Mark 1:35)

St. Josemaría Escrivá, pray for us!
