Greetings to you all, family in Christ...

I am a recently-baptised Catholic (Easter 2011) who left lifelong atheism to walk along the Way of Truth to Life. It has been difficult to overcome the doubts, and I struggle with darkness daily... but that helps me to sympathise with atheists. Perhaps God calls us former atheists to have extraordinary faith: to strengthen our brethren who have not understood that there is One God, whose mighty hand & strong arm are our rock and defence! A little bit of the logic of Aquinas always helps the atheists too.

There aren't any words that can really express the tearful joy of knowing that the simplest act of all - being cleansed with water under the invocation of the holy, everlasting Name of God - has assumed me into the Family of Christ under one Father. Being a "cradle atheist", sometimes I take things too literally, or without the "eyes of faith", or without the "mind of the church", but I trust that God leads such people as we, if our resolve is firm and our intention honest.

God bless you all, and remember... in His light we see light! There is no darkness in the Almighty!

Hi!
I grew up Catholic and going to church every Sunday. Rebelled against it during college and my 20's and early 30's. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but for some reason I am feeling that I need to start "being better". I have started reading the bible (from the beginning), joined this site, and trying to "be better". I am thankful that there is a site like this to help me on my journey. It is a fantastic journey and I am really looking forward to it!

I'm diesel engine mechanic by trade, plumbing/utilities worker by day and most recently the newest Confirmation teacher at my parish by night. Along with my newest endeavor, I also am a lector. I suppose I'm something of an amateur Apologist as well, most of my Protestant friends come to me when they have questions regarding the Catholic Faith.

I have been with my parish my entire life and am enthusiastic about being at a point in my life where I can begin to give back to it. I'm glad that I've found this resource to help me along my way!

-Kenny
Welcome Kenny!!
Looking forward to having you on board!
Folks coming to you when they need questions answered
in regard to the Catholic Faith is a sure sign that you are
an Apologist in the making ! Keep up the good work,
Kenny! Your parish is blessed to have you with them. Being
a member of the same parish for all your life is a great blessing
too. Looking forward to your participation!!
Make yourself at home !!
God Bless You Kenny.
Catherine

Hi!
I learned about this site from what i watched tonight. I was browsing videos of my fave girl group then i noticed an advertisement entitled Peter Parker becomes Priest on the bottom of the video I chose. I watched and listened until he mentioned about this site. I immediately wondered why am i able to catch up with what the video reminds us. Then i remembered praying earlier to our Lord to remove the confusion in my vocation. Indeed, He hears.

So I checked out this site. ^^

Hi.
I am a Catholic who has came from a very loving family and am trying to raise my family in the same way. My husband of over 20 years is my closest friend and together we have welcomed four children into the world. Our oldest is in college, Our youngest is in grade school.

In the past year my son's friend invited me to attend a mother's spirituality group meeting at our parish. I had never gone before because I really thought it was for young stay at home moms of babies and preschoolers. It is, of course, but it is also for women who have older children and women who have never experienced physical motherhood. This group has changed the way I view the world and my faith. I feel challenged and renewed in a way that I haven't since Catholic highschool. We start each meeting with the Rosary and are following the Women of Grace curriculum to understand our roles as spiritual mothers to nuture the faith of others. Each month their is also an additional book to read that is chosen by any of the participants. Last month we read Extreme Makeover, the month before it was The Boy Who Met Jesus. This month we are reading The Great Divorce. How has it changed our family life? We pray together, we talk about our faith and the daily challenges that each of us faces from grade school to adulthood. We are talking about spending more time in Adoration. Even my youngest who is prone to say his day was boring, is now praying about it to help him see God's blessings in his day so he can recognize the Joy around him.

I am very glad to have found this site, I find it informative and inspiring. Please pray for us.
Thank you!
