  • That is a wonderful encouraging welcome, ANNE, TO DX.

    A warm welcome, dxcat
    How blessed you are.
    Just a minor correction

    The St John you are referring to here is John, the Beloved, aka John the Evangelist.


    St John of the Cross was a Spanish Carmelite priest who was St Teresa of Avila’s great guide in feforming the Carmelite order. A great Mystic.

  • Another little correction for dx since no one mentioned it: Christ said, "Woman, behold thy son."  not women, as He was referring to the Blessed Virgin.
    I had noticed my typo last night, but I could not fix it. There might be a time-out feature for corrections to posts or something? In other words, you can only correct a post within X time.

    I did know that I had made a mistake and that yes, Jesus was referring to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to her, one single woman.
    Thanks for mentioning it to me. God bless, Anne

  • Hi.

    I'm a 25 years old Spaniard who converted to Catholicism in 2021, for an existential emptiness that led me to seek, and I'm learning about the faith.

  • I converted in 2010 after a 42 year stint as a Protestant. Came into the Church full throttle but was surprised not to see the Liturgy performed like I had seen in the pictures of Holy Mass as a boy. The beautiful altars, statues and reverence I was mesmerized by, I concluded, were not in practice today only present in remote areas and in distant regions. 

    Then I found a local diocesan parish that had a Tridentine Mass twice a month. I attended those Masses and was immediately drawn to it. However, the lockdowns cancelled those Masses, so I looked for other options. I then found a local SSPX chapel, started attending, and realized what I had been looking for all my life. 

    I’m still on a journey, but I realize how much Our Lord and Our Lady have been leading me to where they want me to be.

  • Welcome to CI, wx, glad to know you.
    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer

  • Hello everyone,

    Matthew - thank you for letting me join this forum.

    Was aware of cathinfo by name only for years, but only started exploring discussions in forums a few days ago...excellent commentary, engaging. Also - ham radio discussions interesting, as I am one myself. Licensed in 2017. Been a radio nut since I was a kid, shortwave, scanners, CB. 

    Catholic Canadian here, just moved to the middle of nowhere on fairly big property, making an attempt to homestead to whatever degree I can, off grid, etc. Still construction work to do, build garage, sheds, and so on. Access to Latin Mass, but about 1+ hours to get there.

    Rosary intentions for all here.

  • Let's start you off with a thumbs-up for that self-introduction.

    Another ham here.

  • Hi, I just turned 36. I live just outside of Detroit. I am a recovering lapsed Catholic. 

    I'm very interested in learning more about living an authentic Catholic life. I have a few parishes in my area offering the Latin mass. I like attending these but I need to learn more about what's being said and done.

    I work 3rd shift in a gas station. Right now it's all my body can handle. My sinful life after I left the Church has had dire consequences on my body, soul, and mind. I also hurt many people while I was out there. I hate to admit it, but almost all the people I hurt were those who loved me and wanted nothing but the best for me. Please pray for me that I can have the grace to avoid going back to that life. 

    On a happier note, I've found my mind is significantly more calm this past week. I am eager to find out what it's like to remain in a state of grace and regularly receive the Eucharist. At this point, I don't care if I get married or have kids or make a lot of money. I'm lucky to be alive, I'll be even luckier if I can ever have a living space that I can call my own.
