Welcome!  I’m Renée, a convert to the Holy Catholic Church from Evangelical Protestantism.  I am motivated by the desire that all Christians might know the indescribable joy of receiving Christ Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Holy Eucharist.  For this reason I kneel before the Father, from Whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name (Eph 3:14-15).

“So come, my soul, come and let us go to God by self-abandonment. Let us acknowledge that we are incapable of becoming holy by our own efforts, and put our trust in God, who would not have taken away our ability to walk unless He was to carry us in His arms…. Our trust and our faith will deepen the darker it grows; and as we pass great gorges and jagged peaks and across vast deserts, and become terrified by persecution, famine and drought and visions of hell and purgatory, we have only to glance at You to feel safe amidst the greatest peril. We shall forget the roads and what they are like, forget ourselves and abandon ourselves entirely to the wisdom, the goodness and the power of our Guide, and remember only to love You and avoid the slightest sin and fulfill all our obligations. This, my Beloved, is all Your children have to do. You take charge of everything else.”
Jean-Pierre de Caussade, Abandonment to Divine Providence

  1. Thank you, Christie! It looks very interesting!

  2. Thank you for a wonderful blog, just “discovered” it this past week and am loving it. Please keep writing, you might have a book brewing inside you to share with others. Pray on it and see. BTW, saw Bishop DiLorenzo’s pic we share the same diocese, I live in Roanoke. Howdy, and God bless, neighbor!

    • Wow! You definitely win the prize for “Nearest Reader!” Most of the folks who comment here are in Australia, Canada, Florida, Georgia or some place called “California.” Thanks so much for letting me know where you are!

      Please join me in praying for the “Encounter the Joy of the Gospel” initiative in our diocese, and for the Bishop! This is a wonderful time to be Catholic!!
