The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic are: Prayer, Study, Generosity and Evangelization.

Prayer is a priority for Dynamic Catholics, who tend to have structured praying.  Many pray at the same time every day, some go to Mass in the morning and others sit on a big, comfortable chair at a corner of their home or take a walk, but tend to abide by a structured praying.

They have a habit of prayer, which they cling to with great discipline. Dynamic Catholics have a time, a place, and a structure to pray.

Dynamic Catholics are keenly interested in learning about Jesus. They consider Him a friend, coach, mentor and Savior.  They believe that Jesus teaches them through the Scriptures, Christian tradition, and the Church.

If they disagree with a Church teaching, they approach the issue in this way: “Why does the Church teach this? What am I missing?”  They humbly explore the Church teachings to understand the truth.

Dynamic Catholics possess a spirit of service and are generous stewards of their time, talent, and treasure. They see generosity at the hearth of Christianity and the proof the teachings of Christ in their lives, and describe money and material possessions as a primary impediment to spiritual growth.

They are generous lovers, parents, colleagues, and are generous with strangers. Dynamic Catholics are generous with virtue — patience, kindness, and compassion.  Generosity brings the love of God to the world.

Dynamic Catholics want others to experience the joy of a dynamic relationship with God. They regularly share a Catholic perspective, that includes God and the Church, with other people.

Evangelization is where the best and brightest Dynamic Catholics tend to be weak. Evangelization is at the core of their mission, but most Catholics feel uncomfortable with the concept and the practice.
