That moment when your son's Godfather is so legit that he sends the parents books and DVDs not just to help with their 2 year old's religious ed but their own personal faith development ❤❤❤ (I has mentioned I was trying to get into apologetics and was so lost/confused so he came through!!) #surprisepresents #catholicconverts #gabeloveshisgodfather #wedotoo

Husband and I. Hubs is a cradle catholic. Despite what many might assume, I did not convert because of him. In fact he never brought it up, never even asked me to go to mass (even though he should have) — he only ever asked that I be down with raising children Catholic. . While we were dating, I began going to mass with him so I could hear him play music in that big Cathedral. It took some months to decide to sign up for RCIA and the rest is history. . Unfortunately I think many cradles are cautious to evangelize because they’ve spent their entire lives battered by negative perceptions about their faith, and are exhausted by it. . My message to cradles would be to stay hungry, don’t sugar-coat the truth, don’t bend for current culture, and don’t lose hope in anyone. . . #catholic #catholiccouples #marriage #conversion #catholicconverts #romesweethome #homesweetrome #faithjourney

Lola, hurry up! My daughter and little granddaughter in this photo. I lagged behind to snap a photo of them, and my granddaughter was calling on me to make it fast. This was at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Lots of family errands occurred during the day and we missed the Mass in our local parish. I decided to drive to the Basilica in the afternoon. I thought greatly of the non-optional need for them to hear Mass and receive the blessings and graces that can only be obtained from the Mass. Jesus has said it very clearly: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves” (John 6:53). The thought of - - their soul not getting fed or refreshed through the Holy Mass is tremendously worrisome, even for the little baby. #catholicfamilies #ewtn #osv

#repost @catholicconnect • • • • • Oh glorious patriarc St. Joseph, who merited to be called "just' by the Holy Ghost, I urgently recommend to the soul of our atheist brothers and sisters, which Jesus redeemed at the price of his precious blood. Thou knowest how deplorable is the state and how unhappy the life of those who have banished this loving savior from their hearts, and how greatly they are exposed to the danger of losing him eternally. Permit not, I beseech thee, that a soul so dear to me should continue any longer in its evil ways; preserve it from the danger that threatens it; touch the heart of the prodigal child and conduct him back to the bosom of the fondest of fathers. Abandon him not, I implore thee, till thou hast opened to him the gates of the heavenly city, where he will praise and bless thee throughout eternity for the happiness which he will owe to thy powerful intercession.

"When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home." John 19:26‭-‬27 NABRE . Mary, mother of all Christians, pray for us! 🌹. . Lots of prayers going out to Eastern NC right now! We are seeing the remnants of #hurricaneflorence right now in the Piedmont-Triad and it's no joke. Lots and lots of rain. . I took this picture of Mama Mary while I was doing a practicum for my college coursework in a pre-K classroom at a Catholic school in Eastern NC. It's crazy to think that tomorrow (if weather permits), I will be starting my first full-time job as a director of after-school programs at a Catholic school. I'm nervous, but so excited to start working in such a great community. Pray for me, y'all 💓 . Continue to pray for the Carolinas as we get lots of lots of rain. Pray especially for the eastern Carolinas! Much of that area is under water right now. . . . . . . . . #hurricaneflorence #catholic #catholicblogger #catholicwoman #catholicwomen #femcatholic #bissisterhood #blessedisshe #carolinacatholic #catholicconverts #catholicism #mamamary #bvm #blessedvirginmary #virgencita #virginmary #lavirgen

It's finished! 🙌 I've wanted a dedicated altar/prayer corner space for a while. My rosaries and prayer books somehow ALWAYS wind up scattered across our apartment, which means prayer time always starts with an annoying scavenger hunt. Most of my "Catholic stuff" (my main rosary, saints cards, and book of prayers) came from my grandmother who recently passed away. She was a lifelong Catholic and began giving these items over the years after I converted. (side note: Can we talk about the beauty of women passing on traditions to their female descendants? My favorite thing about being Catholic is how just intensely female my religious experience has become. Anyway...) After a scare where I thought I'd lost my grandmother's chaplet (it was in my OTHER purse. It's always the other purse) I decided it was finally time to give these things a home. 🏡 Anything big was quickly ruled out since my husband and I both work out of our apartment. Space is fought over constantly and, when necessary, ferociously. Most often I wind up praying or reading on My Side of the Couch and I just thought it would be nice to have a cup holder for my rosaries on the wall. Badabing. Badaboom. 👍 So, all that to say... here's the thing I made.

My first blog post is live! Click the link in my bio to see it! The post discusses the research I did to understand some of the church teachings that are considered more controversial. Check it out if you are curious as to what resources a former protestant used before deciding to become a member of the Roman Catholic church.

Newman's conversion to Catholicism in 1845 rocked the English establishment; he was taken to task, especially by Charles Kingsley. The Apologia was his reply, a spiritual classic.
