  2. "Return, O my soul, to your rest;
    for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you."

    Psalm 116:7

    in you alone I find rest.

  3. Sometimes I wish I were a convert like you so I can be as enthusiastic about my faith as you are. I really want to be holier but I'm just not feeling it even though I try :/

    Even I feel I don’t have enthusiasm about my faith sometimes! And I wish I was a cradle catholic who had the Sacraments my whole life!

    Just keep praying! The path you have is unique and God is going to use you! Fall madly in love with Him and you’ll find that enthusiasm and passion. Live your life like it is dramatically different than things of this world, because it is!

    I’ll pray for you! And I love you!

  4. You so cute

    No, YOU SO CUTE.

    (Thank you!)

    • Me: Mary, help me to love Christ as you do.
    • Mary: Pay attention. During the Eucharistic celebration, the Church is transported to the foot of the cross. You stand among the jeering crowds as Jesus hangs on the cross, and so many people stand there at the foot of the cross and don't even care.
  5. When you say "everything fell apart" after Vatican II, what do you mean by that? Are you not in favor of the reforms put into place at that time?

    No, not at all. I’m more referring to the general confusion and disorder that happened during that period. The change was definitely needed and good but the transition was shaky!

  6. Have you or are you discerning religious life?

    I am in a state of constant discernment! I feel very called to married or consecrated single life right now, but I am very open to wherever God leads me. Earlier this fall/winter I was seriously discerning religious life, but I don’t know if I’m called to live in a religious community. I am currently in the process of becoming a lay Dominican, however!
