About the Author and Creator of D180
Fr. Greg explains the origins of D180 as arising from his lived experience: “As I worked with young men, I began to see that they needed more structure in their lives, especially while they’re seeking to know their vocations.” He also wanted to offer men deep content, not “fluff”, and so he drew from the Church’s greatest saints and theologians for the daily readings. “So far D180 has borne incredible fruit in my own diocese,” he said. “I’m glad to offer it to any young man who needs guidance as he listens for God’s call.”
“A comprehensive rule of life tailored specifically for those discerning their vocations.”
FR. BRIAN BUETTNER
“A surefire way to give the Holy Spirit ample room to convict one’s heart—and either enter the seminary or peacefully close the door on the priesthood.”
