A Journey of Faith
This short section of our newsletter will introduce you to the healing power of our Lord in the life of just one of his unworthy creatures. I am not an intellectual, just another ordinary Catholic girl experiencing the extraordinary power of God in her life. This is not a comfortable place for me to be, sharing personal thoughts with strangers, yet, I must remember, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ. I have learned that God loves to challenge us, pulling us out of our comfort zones, that place of safety where we risk nothing and hardly live at all. Yet, He always pulls us out with such love. He knows with such intimacy that person we are capable of becoming, that person He created us to be. Why are we so afraid to let our Lord lead us? We’ve all lived in those comfort zones and have come to know them so well.
The Lord brought me to Aquinas and More just over one year ago and there was no doubt in my mind that this was part of His plan for my life. The first book offered to me was “Catholicism for Dummies”. Yes, I was offended, but only out of pride. As I began to read it, I realized this book was filled with so many details of our Faith of which I was unaware. I have such a long way to go to fully understand the immense treasure that is our Faith, but our Lord is leading me and I have surrendered to Him and have allowed His love to flow through me. It is my hope to bring His love to all of our readers.
All for Jesus,
