Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Another revert tells her tale!

While in Rome, I got to know quite a few wonderful people. One of which is Shannon Berry, she and her boyfriend moved to Rome when I did in fall of 2005 - BK goes to the Angelicum, where I was, while Shannon teaches English. I even roomed with Shannon for a time, towards the end of my year in Rome, when I was in need of somewhere to stay for a week (the fact that she, at the time, roomed with four other Italian 20-somethings made it all the more interesting...).

I've just discovered that Shannon has a very beautiful essay up on the latest "Dapple Things" online journal for young adults, in which she recounts in a simple, yet dramatic fashion, her reversion back to the Catholic faith and reception of Confirmation as an adult.

Shannon is a great person, a good friend, and I highly recommend you read her account - click here for it!
