I am a Roman Catholic -----
I could stop there, because that is what defines me. I am a child of God in full communion with the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ.
However, I shall provide some background. I am a college student from the United States of America. I have Same-Sex Attractions (SSA), and this is the primary focus of my blog. I’m here providing a witness to the multitude of people who feel alienated by this cross. I’m here to show them that the love of Jesus Christ, found most fully in His Church here on Earth, is offered to them without hesitation. I’m here to bring people to Christ.
Now, I’m also discerning priesthood, so please keep me in your prayers as I do likewise pray for all my followers.
If you'd like to contact me via email, because you'd like to keep the question private, or because you'd like to go into further detail, my email is happyandcatholic@yahoo.com. I check it weekly. Any question posed to me in my Ask box will be posted.
