Glad to be here. I am someone who was raised Catholic, until my first penance. But never really made a serious connect. I was essentially kicked out of CCD at age 12 after my parents got divorced and fell away from there. At age 19, I had a radical conversion experience and began attending Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches. My family still attends a small non-denominational Church although in the past year or two, I have fallen in love with all things Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox. If I could, I would attend one of these two. However, because my wife is so severly allergic to incense, I figured that Catholicism is really my only option. :) I now make regular connfesion and take recieve the eucharist as much as I can.

I have been involved in outreach and interfaith dialogue with Muslims for several years. After these years of doing this, my feelings regarding ISlam are not positive. I am also a somewhat best-selling author along these lines, ahough I cannot state the title as I use a pen name. I have recently also co-authored a manuscript with a Benedictine sister (in-between convents) about St. Faustina - her life and message with an emphasis on the Image of Divine Mercy. Pray that we can get it through all of the proper channels to be published.

Blessings all.

Rick
