WHAT IS SPIRITUAL FITNESS?
It takes 21 days of practicing a repetitive virtue to flip a vice into a virtue.
Sinner2Saint has 15 different sets of 21 Day Soul Exercises in some of the most popular sin areas.
WHY GROW IN THE INTERIOR LIFE? HOW DOES SPIRITUAL FITNESS STRENGTHEN US TO INCREASE IN VIRTUE?
"When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less." -C.S. Lewis
"Where sin is increased, grace abounds all the more." -Romans 5:20
Have you ever gone to confession for the same sins over and over? This is a struggle many people have and it can become frustrating. We are all weak, broken and sinful, original sin guarantees this! But there is great hope because Our Lord is so merciful in His forgiveness. And there are many tools to grow in virtue to alleviate these repeated sins and grow in Holiness and strive to become a Saint!
To beat temptation moments, we must robe ourselves in virtue and grace and be grounded in the spirit (for the flesh is weak). Remaining in the state of grace is one of the most important things we can do to decrease our reliance on vice and sin, our purgatorial cleansing time and speed up our journey to Heaven. And the most effective way is to build up a wall of virtue in our soul so that the temptations bounce off of ourselves, we no longer want to offend God and sin becomes less alluring. St. Paul reminds that we are spiritual warfare in Ephesians 6: 10-13.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
HOW DOES SPIRITUAL FITNESS STRENGTHEN US TO INCREASE IN VIRTUE?
There are hundreds of Catholics apps out there that pretty much do the one thing well: list prayers, offer the rosary, list the bible etc. Sinner2Saint is very different. This app combines the concept of a physical exercise app and Catholic Virtue into one. We like to call it: Spiritual Fitness. Sinner2Saint uses over 14 spiritual interior life tools that the Saints used of prayer, fasting, penance, scripture verses, sacraments, saint quotes, deep reflection, aestheticism, interior examination and virtue to do lists to create the habit of discipline and virtue to help you change inside. Just like with your body, your soul needs regular exercise to stay pure, sharp and help you strengthen and maintain a very close relationship with God. It was the Saints who prayed constantly, went to Church daily, died to self, turned away from sin so that they could hear God, trusted in Him and bore the crosses that God chose for them with humility. This app will help you reflect on your sins but most importantly, their opposite virtues so that you can grow into holiness and become the best version of yourself and try to get to Heaven faster and be with God for eternity.
Like an exercise program, Sinner2Saint has virtue exercise programs that last 21 days.
Why 21-Day Soul Exercises to Grow in Virtue? Research says that all habits - good or bad - become natural or second nature by repeating them for at least 21 days. Unfortunately, with all of our fallen natures, due to original sin and our own weaknesses and concupiscence - we can fall into vices (bad sinful choices) and habitual sin very easily - sometimes in just a few weeks without even realizing the series of temptations, events, wounds, slights, let downs or pain that caused us to react in sin.
The good news is you can counter these learned vices by practicing daily in the opposite virtue for 21 Days (for some people it takes longer - sometimes up to 90 days). This is why I created Sinner2Saint.
Please Note: Sinner2Saint is NOT a replacement for the Sacrament of Holy Confession. If you are Catholic, always go to Confession to confess your sins regularly with a Catholic Priest. S2S just helps you to fulfill the promise of amending your life after confession and absolution (which we vow in the Act of Contrition) - and helps you stay in a state of grace longer, to not fall to the same sin over and over, fight temptation, grow in virtue and get closer to Our Lord.
REFLECT ON THE EFFECTS OF SIN AND VIRTUE
Virtue is formed by practicing the repetition of good deeds over and over until they become habit and part of your character.
I say unto you, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and who do not need to repent.
It is the wicked, however, renounces all the sins he has committed, respects my laws and is law-abiding and upright, he will most certainly live, he will not die.
22-None of the crimes he committed will be remembered against him from then on; he will most certainly live because of his upright actions.
23-Would I take pleasure in the death of the wicked -- declares the Lord Yahweh -- and not prefer to see him renounce his wickedness and live?
24-But if the upright abandons uprightness and does wrong by copying all the loathsome practices of the wicked, is he to live? All his upright actions will be forgotten from then on; for the infidelity of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, he will most certainly die.
Catechism on Sin, 1865-1866:Sin creates a proclivity to sin; it engenders vice by repetition of the same acts. This results in perverse inclinations which cloud conscience and corrupt the concrete judgment of good and evil. Thus sin tends to reproduce itself and reinforce itself, but it cannot destroy the moral sense at its root. Vices can be classified according to the virtues they oppose, or also be linked to the deadly sins which Christian experience has distinguished. They are called deadly because they engender other sins, other vices. They are pride, jealousy, envy, anger, lust, gluttony and sloth.
Catechism on Virtue, 1803: A virtue is an habitual and firm disposition to do the good. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself. The virtuous person tends toward the good with all his sensory and spiritual powers; he pursues the good and chooses it in concrete actions.
WHY STRIVE TO BECOME A SAINT?
In the Catholic Church, only after death can someone be called a Saint, Even if, while alive, the person lived a saintly, holy life. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, for example, who was revered around the world by people of every religion, could not be given the title of Saint until after her death, a through investigation of her life, and only after what the Church believes to be some undisputed miracles that took place through her intercession.
Saints are not born Saints. Saints are born sinners in the state of original sin and were sinners throughout their lives. Saints are ordinary people. They were not born with a halo around their head, and they do not glow in the dark. What separated them from those who were not given the title - is that Saints never gave up and never stopped trying to be and do better through God. They grew very close to God and grew closer to Him through suffering, prayer and decreasing of their own wills and desires until they aligned with Gods Will.
The Catholic Church does not present Saints as Super Heroes. Just sinners who grew in virtue to make it to Heaven. The idea is that if they could do it, so can you. Sinner2Saint helps you get there - the first virtue exercise app for your soul to work toward becoming a Saint!
