  1. Ryan Kraegar... "hunger and thirst " is very relevant. After that I wanted to read more of your stuff and found it in dignitasmagazine. May God strengthen you in your good fight and bless you with the woman He has kept hidden in His heart for you.I have taken the liberty of quoting you here...

    1. You read dignitas? That is great. My cousins produce that magazine. Thank you for the prayer and the quote, and especially the prayer.

    2. Hey Ryan,
      Looks to me,your whole family is actively being the church militant!That is such a big gift from God. Just wanted to say thanks for coming by my blog.It's a great honour to have you (author of two awesome books :)! ) come read.
      God is faithful,Ryan.Let me take the liberty of sharing my witness with you.I'm quite ordinary looking and was quite shy,so no boy had ever asked me out in school or college and if it seemed likely that they would like to be a closer friend,I would have scruples (becasue I wanted to be a nun,initially :)!),go to confession and distance myself. Later on I got over my mistrust of boys,by God's grace, and began to have good friends who are boys in my church youth group.But I still had a lot of inhibitions,and no one had ever proposed still and I was already 26 years old... and I prayed to God that he would bring the right man to be my spouse,someone like Himself.Yea,can you believe it?...I had the audacity to pray that I wanted to marry someone like Jesus!In fact that's exactly what I had told my hubby in the first real conversation we had.How he first saw me and had without my knowledge been considering me for four years before we actually spoke.The proposal,the courtship the marriage and all that unexpectedly happened in my life, is to me nothing short of miraculous.But it's only now,after our baby given to us in our first year of marriage,has become 7 months old that I have discovered how completely and truly the Lord has been faithful to me.How the man He gave me is full of wisdom,tenderness and love.And I know I will keep growing in the realization that He is in so many hidden ways just- like- Jesus! Nothing is impossible with God and our prayers are treasured by our Heavenly Father! God bless you dear.Do remember us in your prayers.

  2. With apologies that it falls to me, a wretched sinner, to state the obvious, but when are you going to take the sacrament of Holy Orders? You would never be without the Eucharist again. No? Surely you could also be a military chaplain. Were you aware that they are in such sort supply and that the need has never been greater?

    Maybe this guy can help you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emil_Kapaun

    1. Yes, I know that the need for military chaplains is great. But I can only do what He gives me to do.

    2. And incidentally, why should one wretched sinner apologize for speaking to another wretched sinner?
