Brandon Vogt reflects on 6 Ways to Turn Your Commute Into a Daily Retreat
“For a long time, I thought it was impossible for the ordinary layperson to cultivate regular times of deep, undistracted prayer. With office jobs and bills and dinner and bath times there was simply no room for that.
“But then something changed. I realized that I already had space for it, I just wasn’t using it well. I already had a sacred period every day when I was alone with my thoughts and open to prayer.
Here are six ways I sanctified my own commute:
1. Listen to Catholic audiobooks, talks, and podcasts.
2. Stream an audio Bible.
3. Reflect through sacred music.
4. Pray the Rosary.
5. Embrace silence.
6. Talk to Jesus.
