… Meeting the people of these countries, mostly Ireland because of our ancestry, and learning the religious history, I felt a renewed sense of obligation and destiny to pursue my Catholic faith with vigor… Continue reading My First Confession
The U.S. population is becoming less religious. I see that in my own home town.
I’ve made mention before, that I live in a very liberal place. That’s relative. It’s liberal if you are… Continue reading How Unchurched Is Your City?
This Sunday will be first participation in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. To say I am excited is an understatement. It is something that I have longed for a very long time – almost unbeknownst to myself until recently. My birthday is also on Holy Thursday – I think that’s a sign that becoming Catholic is what God intended as I turn a new leaf … Continue reading My Lenten Journey as a Catechumen, Now Elect
