    I heard this quote in a sermon two weeks ago,

    and it stayed with me since. I felt those words have a very universal reach: "If love is the soul of Christian existence, it must be at the heart of every other Christian virtue. Thus, for example, justice without love is legalism; faith without love is ideology; hope without...

    Becoming Catholic

    I will begin my RCIA class at my church this week. I can't wait. I grew up in a Catholic home but my parents did not baptize me in any faith. So now at 20 I have found my path and can't wait to embark on my journey.
