Chene Heady was a believing Catholic whose daily concerns were shaped
primarily by forces other than his faith--career demands, financial
decisions, scheduling conflicts, etc. He worked long hours and had
limited regular interaction with his wife, also a busy professional, and
his young daughter. He was the typical overextended and anonymous
modern Catholic man.
Then he tried an experiment that dramatically
rearranged his life. After reading about the importance of the Church's
liturgical year, Heady took up the challenge to live as though the
Church's calendar, not the secular one, stood at the center of his life.
Every day for a year, he observed the Church's seasons and feasts, and
meditated on the Church's daily readings. As he did so, he found that
his life, and his relationships, became more meaningful and fruitful.
Numbering My Days tells the story of one man's renewal, and it offers an authentic model of spiritual development for anyone.
