The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Although many doubt the depth if not the sincerity of her conversion, it appears to be genuine. Read more here: A Tale of the Unexpected.
