I Grew Up Catholic

I grew up in a peculiar way.  I transferred from foster home to foster home as a kid, and all types of religion was pushed on me.  I have been a Baptist, Seventh Day Adventist, and Catholic, among others.  But I held on to Catholicism longer than anything.  I used to pray the Rosary every day at my awakening, each meal, at bed time, and anytime in between when I felt I needed guidance from the Lord.  Now I barely remember my Hail Mary, and very little of the Apostolic prayer.

It is a great grace to have been taught the rosary. I cannot help but believe that Our Lady has protected you in many ways. Even if you forget the holy prayers, she will never forget you.

yes, Apache I agree, alot of funny stories, and some are very traumatic. The catholic schools in America have something of a bad rep.

Merci, Julie! I appreciate the compliment. :-)

Well hi Phaedra. i didn't think you were ignoring me, the story just continues, it's like readin some kind of funny, deranged book that is obviously written by many people - it would be a strange person, indeed to come up with all this on their own.<br />

Dain, are you referring to the guy in Austin about 40 years ago? or the man with no name?you kinda lost me on the way to the tower. :-D

@Dain, you're too ******* crazy and I see it's contagious! lol <br />
Sam has to be tough, she's Ayne's First Mate and looks out for all of us in the pirate crew! x<br />

PS. Hi Michael, didn't mean to ignore you! lol x

I might be out your way in the near future. I would like to see the Keys. I love the song Kokomo by the Beach Boys. <br />

And I like Poison, she doesn't hold back anything, very straight forward, and really seems to know exactly where she's going. Much unlike myself.<br />

I laugh at most things I read on here, but dude, you crack me up all the time!

I would love to, where are you this Saturday, in Denver, I hope... cant afford anywhere else. Love to meet you in person, bud!

Thank you so much, Poison. I like Dain, and he is funny as hell. I know that he has a very creative imagination, and I hardly ever understand his words, but that is cool to me. I hope that your music goes platinum, and that I can say I was your friend. I don't know any rock stars, it would be so awesome if you go big time!

Right you are. I've already been through hell, so it can't get any worse. I now consider myself simply as a Christian... No thumping, missilettes, Rosary, or anything else.
