    I am 72, disabled retired woman, don’t Get out much. But today I went to mass in Reno, which I’ve done several times. I am not a member of the Catholic Church, but I am a follower of Christ, a full time home student of Christianity, who is considering joining the church. I watch a lot of EWTN, read many Christian sources, because I must lie down a lot. At mass today, I picked up the Colloqui and read this fabulous article. Wow! Because I returned to Jesus 3 yrs ago, and left lifelong liberalness, I have lost many friends, and almost lost some family. But I’m with the Lord for the duration. I really enjoyed hearing these thoughts, as they mirror what I have lived through since summer 2016 when i registered independent and my eyes started to open. Thank you!! 💕✝️

    • Thank you Cynthia for your warm comments, it is so good to know there are Christian men and women still longing for God. If only there were more seekers of the truth of Jesus Christ like you. Please come again to Mass and introduce yourself. These days it helps to find kindred, like-minded souls to lift the spirit. If I can help in any way to assist you in your journey of faith, do not hesitate to ask. God bless you.
