Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you                Pray without ceasing                For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you                And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him                Through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God                Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven                Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven                It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God

Love One Another!



I would like to tell you how I met God, and how He led me onto the right path.

My parents instilled in me the rules of the Christian faith from a very early age. Every Thursday and Sunday, I dutifully served at Mass as an altar boy. At school I received awards for being an excellent student. Then, in the fifth grade, I got into bad company, and after that I was no longer a well-mannered child or an exemplary student, but a hooligan — a so-called “social outcast.”

When I reached for my first cigarette, I had no idea I would go downhill so quickly. Tobacco soon led to alcohol, glue sniffing, amphetamines, marijuana, acid, ecstasy, magic mushrooms, and so on. To make things worse, there was masturbation. I also had some serious run-ins with the police. In grade ten I was offered the chance to take part in a spiritual retreat, and I took it. I experienced a great act of grace from God. I felt the real, living presence of Jesus. That meeting changed my heart. Above all, Jesus freed me from my addiction to drugs. On returning home, I made a clean break with my old company.

At the next retreat, God took away my addiction to cigarettes, and then my addiction to masturbation. Thanks to Him, my life has turned around 180 degrees, and I am ecstatic about it. What makes me happiest is that God has once again made me His knight, who can serve Him at Holy Mass, only now not as His altar boy, but as His guitarist. Praise God!
