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."

Many years!
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

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
