Bravo to Neal McDonough for holding to his Catholic faith. Thank, you Neal. We should all be following in your footsteps, regardless of our profession.
Holiness isn't an all-at-once kind of project. You don't do this or that and suddenly achieve holiness. Holiness is something you work at in small ways day-in-and-day-out. It's a progression that takes place over the entire span of your lifetimes.
