That's a Great Idea!

  I went over to a new journal ... well, new to me, yesterday and was very pleasantly surprised!  There I met a young man named Kellen.  He is a Senior in high school and apparently passionately devoted to Christ Jesus and to his faith...Catholicism. 

Now, many of you may gather, if you have read me for very long, that I am of a Protestant denomination.  So, I readily admit there is much I do not know or understand of Catholicism.  But, what I read and saw at Kellen's journal I do know:  a belief in the body and blood of Christ to cleanse us from all sin and a calling to prayer as His disciple.

This dear fellow has a wonderful idea of praying for our country, world leaders, world peace and each other.  He has a plan set up in such a way that he can accomodate Catholics in the Eucharist and others in their own daily time of devotion and prayer.

Please go over and check this out at Faith in Roman Catholicism!  It is a wonderful opportunity on many levels:  support a young Christian in service to their Lord, encourage a fellow journaler, be involved in a wonderful prayer initiative, and perhaps learn more about your own or another religion.

  2. I'm checking it out.

  3. Have been reading Kellen's journal for a little while, and can only have respect for the depth of her convictions, particularly in one of her age.


  4. Being brought up Catholic and having gone to Catlolic schools as did my relatives before me, I question the catholic religion. Since then,  have studied religion and I not been able to continue with that religion. But to each, Its own. I will check out the journal you have reccommed.
