My eldest nephew, who I have helped to raise, has enlisted in the Army.
He will be leaving for Basic Training on January 4, 2010.
Ryan is currently attending RCIA where I teach. He is baptized, but due to my brother falling away from The Church, has never received all of his Sacraments of Initiation.
My prayer is that he will be received fully into The Church before he leaves so that he can avail himself of the power available to him while he is serving in the military.
Ryan is 20, wants to go into law enforcement and has been disowned by his father because he has enlisted and is becoming Catholic.
Ryan is living with me until he leaves.
Please keep us in prayer.
I am so proud of him, but wish he wanted to be a banker ;).
Anyway, what can I send with him? I thought about the devotional book written by Archbishop Sheen for our troops in WWII…is it ok to send things like that with them when they leave?
I want to be a good Army Auntie - HELP!!!
