Catholic APPtitude is a lay Carmelite apostolate

Our website made news in an unusual corner of Catholic World. Tip of the hat to the Carmel Clarion, a magazine for Secular Discalced Carmelites here in the U.S. Their latest issue mentioned our website cataloging quality Catholic apps as a unique apostolate from yours truly. Secular Carmelites are called to engage in contemplative prayer and liturgy and Marian devotion and contemplative reading of Scripture and other enriching elements of the spiritual lifestyle including apostolic work that can be a little on the creative side –like this site! It’s been a tremendous experience to oversee the development of this apostolate from an email service primarily directing seminarians to great Catholic apps to this site with world-wide interest for folks looking for guidance among the hundreds of Catholic apps out there. Tip of the hat to the Holy Spirit!

I’m part of the Washington Province OCDS, if you want to check them out.
