Dr. Greg Bottaro, a Catholic psychologist, and the director of the CatholicPsych Institute and the developer of the Catholic Mindfulness online course. Before getting his doctorate, he spent four years living as a Franciscan friar, serving the poor in the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi. He ultimately discerned a call to pursue family life. Six years after leaving NYC as a friar, Dr. Bottaro returned as a psychologist. His aim is fundamentally the same to serve. Instead of serving those suffering material poverty, he now seeks to serve those with psychological needs..
In our powerful conversation we explored Dr. Greg's journey: his conversion inspired by St. John Paul II's book Love and Responsibility and encouraged by Peter Kreeft, serving the poor and learning to pray deeply as a Friar with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in the Bronx, and his mission to integrate a Catholic understanding of the human person with the best practices in modern psychology. Dr. Greg also shares how prayer and intimate time with God helped him heal from the wounds of his parents divorce and how a disciplined practice of Catholic mindfulness can help others experience a greater sense of peace and God's love.
