We became catechumens this morning!
« on: October 31, 2011, 01:07:43 AM »
Just wanted to update.  My family, (me, dh, and 3 dds) all became catechumens after Diving Liturgy this morning!  Glory to God!  I think I began posting here a little over a year ago and I was in a lot of turmoil over what I was learning.  Very curt.  I just want to apologize to those I may have offended and thank you all for being here for me.

"Beloved in Christ, if you ever despair, wondering if what you do for God matters, remember: each single act of holiness is like a stone thrown into an ocean—the ripples go forth, and we do not know whom they touch or where they end."

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
