I am not defined by my major, my IQ, the person I’m dating, my GPA, or the number on the scale. I am defined by Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
catholicleighann asked: Just read your post about Seek Conference and I am overjoyed to hear your eagerness to strengthen your relationship with God. Congrats and God Bless you always! :)
Thank you so much!
Everyone was so great there. Sometimes it’s hard when you’re young not to feel like you’re alone in the faith. I mean, I go to a great Catholic university, but we’re only roughly 900 students. There’s a huge difference between 900 and 6,200.
When you feel like you’re the only one who follows the Church anymore, you feel like you have a great relationship with God because you’re more dedicated than most of the world. Then after seeing this, how devout and dedicated everyone is to Christ and His Church, and feeling the joy of being in a room with 6,200 people, weeping at the Blessed Sacrament, you realize that if you try, you can have that joy every single day.
I’m so excited to have gone. I hope that people continue to run to Christ in droves like this, taking even 40 hour bus rides to worship as a community.
One of the speakers kept saying, “Look at what Christ did with just 12 men! Imagine what we can do with over six-thousand.”
And then you get a Facebook message that totally ruins your night.
I need to go to Adoration. Like now. Seriously. If I wasn’t dirty and in my PJs, I’d be getting in a car right now.
I’m fuming. I can’t even think straight.
Guys tomorrow I start the devotion to the Sacred Heart.
I think I’m homesick for heaven.
Please stop restricting the pictures that show up on Tumblr!
I can accept some of them, but when it’s a picture of Jesus or Mary or the saints or the Eucharist, I find it terribly annoying.
Second attempt: the internet went down when I tried to post this the first time.
They’re watching me.
I hate dreams.
They shouldn’t have the ability to undo everything I’ve worked so hard to go for.
I haven’t felt heartsick this whole time. I was okay when we last parted ways. Even though I wanted you to try to date me, I knew we weren’t supposed to be together, so I handled it. And then when you started dating her a few days ago, I was angry because you led me on - again - with things you did and said last time we were together. I haven’t talked to you since then, and I was okay with that.
But now I had a dream that was everything that I was thinking. And I hate it. I woke up not knowing where I was, and completely unable to fall back asleep for the longest time. I’m so angry that even though I don’t want to be with you, you still have the ability to make me feel so crushed.
So now I’m all dressed up, hoping to see the guy who I might actually have real feelings for today. Either way, I’m all dressed up to spend some time with the Lord who does have real feelings for me, who won’t lead me on, and won’t forget about me when He finds someone else.
I’m frustrated. But usually days that start bad end up being the best. Here’s to praying.
