About the Author
An aspiring saint, I’m a husband, father (of five), son, grandson, brother, uncle, blogger, Christian and exhausted most days.
My life’s mission is to fulfill my potential. As Christ increases and I decrease (Jn 3:30) – God willing – I’ll get there. On my best days I let the Lord’s will be done. On most days, though, I battle against my selfish desires.
My wife is my hero. We married in 1998. We received the Sacrament of Confirmation together in 2012 and had our marriage blessed by the Catholic Church after fourteen years of civil marriage (this means, by God’s grace, we sanctified our marriage through the Sacrament of Matrimony, one of seven sacraments Catholicism celebrates). We had four kids before our 35th birthday and a bonus baby at age 43. I thank God for my wife and kids – and I’m blessed to have them and my Guardian Angel by my side each day.
… When our hearts are open the Lord can change and transform us, so that one day we can speak with love about the One who is love.”
Francis Cardinal George
I pray, dear reader, in some small way this expression of faith working through love – this Reason2bCatholic blog guided by the Holy Spirit – will one day encourage one soul to Christ because of our encounter. So, let our hearts be open to one another and to the love of Jesus Christ and His Church.
