Benedict XVI

[Jesus] is not just anyone; indeed he is the Friend and at the same time the One who is the Truth that gives life to men and women; and what he gives is not just any kind of joy but joy itself, a gift of the Holy Spirit. Yes, it is beautiful to live because I am loved and it is the Truth who loves me.

All writing on OLCRIM7 is mine unless otherwise stated. 

I'm a retired Catholic teacher, with most of my 31 years teaching grades 7&8 with R.C.C.D.S.B. I've also done some freelance writing.

Through prayer, my heart opens to Christ who is the happiness and love I never stop searching for. My home is in Him and in His one, holy, catholic and apostolic church where I find the Eucharist, his Body and Blood which keeps me fully alive. 

I love to play on water, solid or liquid. Head over to my other website if you'd like to enter this part of my life.

Ezekiel 36: 25-26

I will sprinkle clean water upon you to cleanse you from all your impurities, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. I will give you a new heart and place a new spirit within you, taking from your bodies your stony hearts and giving you natural hearts.
