Bio (A Synopsis)
Having attended the University of the Incarnate Word studying Religious Studies and hopefully will be studying as a student with the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans I hope to gain a deeper understanding of Theology and the way of St. Francis. This has been my deepest passion for thirty years. I have been waiting for the right opportunity and I was presented with the privilege recently and am now praying to engage with OEF.
Once a Marine in 1971 – 1972 I have served in an Honorable capacity. I like to think of myself, though, as a child of God. My purpose is not of war, but in a mystical relationship with Jesus Christ. This journey alongside my encounters with the Lord perpetuates goodness in a union with Christ's Presence through understanding more each day to the mysticism of a deepened prayer life.
I have discovered prayer requires humility and transparency with the Holy Spirit. We (over time), are in a transformational process. This becomes a place of covenant (within our hearts), of depth, truth, and "the place of decision deeper than our psychic drives." (Catechism of the Catholic Church 614).
Through prayer I write spiritually coherent. Prayer may also manifest itself as communion as we witness the heart's attentiveness in a deepened sublimation. I draw closer in union with Christ. And this I like. I am grateful. I become rich. I wish (and aspire to), conform to God's will "through faith and we may be "grounded in love" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 651).
With regards to my bio I write very little of my youth. Too much trauma. I have since regained a sense of purpose to spread and share the good news. And this power of love is the greatest essence upon the face of this earth. And for this I am grateful for the encounters.
