Updates on my life

I really enjoy blogging about the Catholic Church, but at times I feel it is necessary to post something more about myself to make this blog more personal. So, I wanted to update my readers. So far my application to enter the seminary is going extremely well. In just a few weeks I will be going on a vacation and visiting another seminary in a different state. I will certainly be posting on this when I return. I would appreciate your prayers.

But, most importantly, I ask for all of your prayers for a family member of mine. In the past I have turned to my blog readers for prayers, and I was astonished each time by the great amount of support. And, my prayers have always been answered when I posted them on this website. I thank you so much for offering up your prayers for my own intentions. If you ever need prayers, please feel free to ask me.

Right now, though, I ask you to pray for a family member of mine. This person will be going to a simple surgery next month and will undergo some examinations. Please pray that my family member doesn't have any serious conditions like cancer. Please pray the the Lord heals and blesses this person.

I thank you so very much for your prayers!

Assuming anonymous is correct, I want to hear your conversion story as well.

Did you convert over from another ecclesial community of from a non-Christian background?

I also stopped to pray for your family member. May he or she be surrounded by the love of our Lord and healed by his touch from whatever infirmity troubles them.

For me, it's always a nice feeling when a blogger trusts his/her readers enough to share a little of themselves with us.

As for my conversion story...

The first time I entered a Catholic Church was around 2002, and I knew by the grace of God that this was His Church. In 2004 I was baptized, confirmed, and received my First Communion. Since then I have blogged and learned as much about the Faith as I can. As I was entering the Church, God was calling me to the priesthood.

I entered from a non-religious background. I had always been a Christian but didn't go to Church or really understand Christianity very well. I can't believe how great my life has changed spiritually since then!!!
