Full-court press

If you're a basketball fan, you know what the term "full-court press" means. If you're not, let me explain:

Instead of the defense scaling back to the other end of the court to defend their basket, they "press(ure)" the offense the full length of the court, hoping to force a turnover. This usually happens when the defense is desperate, with little time left in the game.

A week from today is Christmas. And perhaps these last few weeks of Advent you wish you'd done more to prepare your heart for the birth of The Lord.

If that's you, I want you to stop hanging your head and know there's still time.

Break out the spiritual full court press these next seven days and...

1. Go to confession.

2. Schedule (and I do mean schedule) 10 minutes, each day, to pray by yourself or with your family.

3. Call or visit someone you know who feels lonely or forgotten.

4. Take a water break if necessary.

Go.
