My Anniversary

The Holy Father has declared today, October 11, 2012, the first day of the "Year of Faith" but for me it's much more special than that- today is the 9th anniversary of me being fully Catholic. I'm thankful for my abnormal confirmation date (most people come into communion with the Church at Easter but I'm a rare exception) because it's in the month of the Rosary (October) and was in the year of the Rosary(which ended at the close of October 2003). Just recently I consecrated myself to Jesus through Mary on the feast of Our Lady of the most holy Rosary(October 7th). I was made to be a mamma's boy! That is why I feel called to spread devotion to the Rosary and why I feel called to the P.O.R.N. Militia.
 
 
I have grown and seen a lot over these last nine (Catholic) years:
 
  • I've witnessed the death of a charismatic pope and the election of a scholarly pope
  • I've gotten to experience the Sacrament of matrimony
  • I've sponsored 4 people as they became fully Catholic
  • I started teaching R.C.I.A.
  • I started receiving the Eucharist on the tongue
  • I've been blessed to battle infertility with my wife- and as a result have learned true sexuality and  NFP (Natural Family Planning)
  • I've fallen many times, but have gotten TOTAL forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • I've seen the translation of the liturgy change
  • I've become a God-Father to 3 wonderful baptized babies.
  • I've attended several A.C.T.S. retreats
  • I've started receiving the Eucharist while kneeling
  • I've lost a job
  • I've gotten to experience the Mass in Latin
  •  
  • I found out that my Bible was missing books
  •  
  • I've met wonderful patron saints: Fulton Sheen, Francis De Sales, Josemaria Escriva
  •  
  • I've found a new more God friendly job
  • I've lost friends because of my faith
  • I've started a blog
  • I've fallen more in love with C.S. Lewis as a Catholic than when I was a Protestant 
  • I've gained brothers and sisters because of my faith
  • I prayed a the abortion clinic and worked at the soup kitchen
  •  
  • I helped lead Life Teen 
  • I lost my mother
  • I accepted Mary as my personal spiritual mother
 
May this Year of Faith be a blessing to you all!
 
WITH PETER...TO JESUS...THROUGH MARY! PAX!
