Hi!

I'm Stephanie, I am a Wife, Momma, Daughter, Sister, Friend... But most importantly I am the beloved daughter of God. I know this, and I BELIEVE this as well, thanks to the beautiful homilies given by a priest whom I knew briefly before his passing in 2014. I didn't appreciate him fully until November of 2015 after I had a total hysterectomy and was recovering and finally decided to listen to recordings of his homilies given during several Novenas over the years at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Monastery here in Buffalo, NY.
Father James Erving was an Oblate of Mary, a missionary Priest known for his honesty and living out the gospel of Jesus in his daily life.
I was incredibly moved by his homilies- so much so that it completely saved my whole being from utter despair and brought me out of a deep depression. This blog is a chance for me to share many quotes, scriptures and beauty that comes from Catholic writers, Saints, and Saints-in-the-making... even a bit of prose from yours truly.
These are my thoughts, my visual interpretations and pictures I made in the past and up to the present day.
I am the Beloved of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And the daughter of Mary, my everyday Momma, who covers me in her beautiful holy Mantle of love.
