Experience the beauty of God’s creation in one of his unsullied areas. Don’t forget trail mix. Say a rosary while you’re at it.

10. Write Poetry

Write a poem, especially if you’ve never done so before. It doesn’t have to change the world–just access a different part of your intellect. Address it to God if you’re embarrassed to give it to a mere mortal. Pictured here is the tortured Catholic poet Oscar Wilde. (Caution: don’t lose your mind.) Once definitive proof is shown that Shakespeare was Catholic, this post will be updated.

11. Evangelize

With heart, mind, soul, and strength restored, go spread the Good News to whomever will listen. Have a great summer!

Br. Dominic Bouck was born and raised in Dickinson, North Dakota, the youngest of seven children. He went to the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he graduated with a degree in Philosophy, Catholic Studies, and Classical Languages.
