A graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City with an MBA in finance, Bradley DiTeresi is a partner in a real estate development company in Peru known as Casas Hof Constructora e Inmobiliaria. Personally, Bradley DiTeresi considers himself a practicing Catholic.
Essentially, living as a practicing Catholic means giving the assent of will and intellect to the teaching of the Catholic Church as given by Christ. Following the Church's moral teachings, including the Ten Commandments, provides the guideline for the practice of Catholicism, which preaches continual conversion and pursuit of virtue in becoming conformed to Christ.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church also outlines five precepts for practicing Catholics. The first four precepts cover areas such as attending Mass on Sundays and other holy days of obligation, participating in the sacrament of confession, receiving the Eucharist, and abiding by rules of abstinence and fasting.
The fifth precept requires that practicing Catholics contribute to the needs of the Church. This obligation encompasses financial contributions as well as support in other areas, according to the abilities and situation of each individual.
Bradley DiTeresi completed his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Kansas and pursued graduate studies in business administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC).
