No Cross...No Crown

'Home' Inside looking out.  Late Fall....'2011'

Welcome to my blog and welcome to my very first post. I've seen and experienced suffering and I really didn't know what to do with it.  Paul says in Romans 8:17-18...But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later. 
Our church teaches that I can offer my suffering up to Jesus for the petition of others.  My suffering has a purpose! This Catholic teaching was a game changer for me. This is one of the many beautiful whispers of Catholicism that I discovered. I'm thankful to Jesus Christ that he gave me his beautiful church and I want to converse with others that feel the same joy as I do. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about this beautiful gift called Catholicism. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll visit again.   ~amy

Hi Amy,

I found your blog linked at Theresa's Carmelitemom and came over to say hello. Welcome to the blogosphere! I started just over one year ago and have "met" so many wonderful like-minded Catholic and Christian men and women. What a blessing the internet has been to me!
