Imagine Catholic children coached with The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic: Prayer, Study, Generosity and Evangelization. “Be Bold, Be Catholic,” is the motto of the Dynamic Catholic Institute. The Catholic Church needs a great vision, like The Four Signs, because “Where there is no vision, the people will perish” (Proverbs 29:18).  If we asked to 77 million Catholics in America for a brief description of the Catholic Church’s mission we would get a long array of diversified answers, which proves our mission is undefined.

Dynamic periods in the history of the Catholic Church occurred when it was intentionally focused.  The period 33-150, the Apostolic Church, was the most dynamic and the risen Christ is the legacy. The great influx of new Christians during Constantine’s reign in the 4th century led to the rise of monasticism.  In the early Middle Age, the development and growth of monastic communities caused dynamic Church growth and the foundation of Western Civilization.  The 13th century is the pinnacle of Western Christianity.  The Counter-Reformation was quite dynamic, because it challenged the status quo.
