I encountered a new word today, ‘mussar’.

From what I understand, it has to do with the practice of ‘living with meaning and purpose…’

If you have ten or 12 minutes to spare, you can learn a bit more about ‘mussar’ by watching this:

I’m grateful that fellow Catholic blogger Fran Rossi Szpylczyn passed the video along today… I thought I’d do the same…with no comment, other than the invitation to ‘talk amongst yourselves.’

  1. Glad that you found and enjoyed this – and then shared the video. What a great way to practice lving, with mussar!

    • Yes, indeed, Fran.

      And here’s one question that intrigues me: Will the practice of mussar…lead the practitioner to faith?

    So glad you shared this. Reminded me of the practices of the 12 Steps, too. Such great wisdom. Peace
