Montanaman----

Hang on to your faith!!! You must seek the knowledge about the faith in order to defend, love it, and keep it!!! I was once a very lukewarm Catholic and fell away from the Church. I sought the truth and my eyes were opened. Now days, I can not get through one Mass without crying, and I am so overwhelmed by the peacefullness that overcomes me when I walk into a Catholic Church!!! I encourage you to hold firm and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you!!!

Hi!
Going to be 39 in two days and the mother of a second child (a daughter) :gopray: in about three months. My husband, son Levi, and I live in Harmarville, Pennsylvania, which is north of the city of Pittsburgh.

My ethnic background is a mix. My father is 100% Croatian, and my mother is Irish (mostly), Scotch, with a little Dutch thrown in for good measure.

I was born, baptized, and raised a Latin (Roman) rite Catholic most of my life, and then discovered the Byzantine Catholic rite, about four years ago, due to my brother, who is now a Byzantine Catholic priest. I love the Byzantine rite and being ‘Catholic’ most of all!
