I was sitting in my parish adoration chapel, (One hour weekly between 3 and 4am) reading Magnificate. I stumbled upon your little bio. Wow! I was wondering to myself this sounds exactly like my life experiences. I must admit however that I'm probably probably more sinful and unworthy than you. I'm guessing this is the case. How does he put up with us is beyond comprehension. I don't know how many times He shook His head in sorrow but continues to give me another chance no matter how many times I fall. We Must continue to struggle for good and seek the Truth. His will be done. Irwin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, Heather, for your beautiful "The Conversion of St.Paul" in my beloved Magnificat. My metanoia began on January 3, 1981, and it has been a fabulous train ride, with Bill and Dr. Bob being the conductors! I guess if you take the "I" out of heroin, you get a "heron". I haven't found heroin yet, but my heron made his appearance on 1/3/81 as I lay on a gurney watching the rising sun on a bitter, snowy morning, realizing for the very first time that I never had to take a drink again. Except for His own body and blood, that is the finest gift He has ever given me! Thank you so much for bringing that memory back for me. I just found your blog, and I promise to keep quiet and watch....Ben Fleck, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
I came searching for more of your literary beauty because of Magnificat. Glad I found Shirt of Flame and the deep connections of God and life through your spiritual insights. Why is it that this grace sometimes is triggered through spiritual deprivation, ie: addiction? Addiction in my family has brought about my own ongoing spiritual recovery. Praise God for my beloved Jesus and the Church.
Your meditation today on St. Joseph in Magnificat brought me to your blog. I became very emotional reading this. Thank you so much.
I WELCOME your comments!!!
