I’m overjoyed and feel renewed and strong!

This man that I’ve never met gives an impression of great holiness, he seems so peaceful and trustful in his God who placed him here! The joy and hope I feel are not just fleeting human feelings, they are supernatural I am sure of that!

It’s like all the despairing events of our culture, gay “marriage,” our fights to keep our conscience rights, the war on life and marriage, everything seems so mediocre and low when compared to this election! Everything seems to be put back in perspective, the perspective of heaven! The Obamas, the Hollandes, all the temporal leaders seem so little, so tasteless, beside his stature!

In 2010, he said about “gay marriage”, “Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”

He is a simple man as many stated a few minutes ago:
“As Cardinal he cooked for himself, took the bus to work, refused to live in a palace but lived in an apartment instead. He is a STRONG and clear moral teacher, unafraid to tackle issues like gay marriage, yet he embodied a spirit of service and of mercy. He showed up at an AIDS hospice to wash the feet of the patients there.
Folks, I think we’ll have a Canonizable Pope here. Glory be to God.” Chris Stefanick

I am so excited that I make mine this quote of Father Donald Calloway, “I am in love with Catholicism! I love, love, love it! Watching all this on TV I am so emotional and overjoyed! When you know what the Papcy is, you know we are celebrating the gift of Christ’s faithful love to His Church by giving us a spiritual father (Papa). I pledge my love and obedience, Pope Francis I.”

I was born and raised in Burgundy, France. Good wine and good food reign, but the the region is also deeply rooted in Christianity. The number of beautiful roman churches and chapels is amazing. I am number four of five kids: three girls and two boys. I was raised in a practicing Catholic family. I married Christian in 1977 in Burgundy in an 11th century church. We have five beautiful daughters. Two of them still live in France and three are in the US with us. Our two eldest daughters are married, one in Denver, one in France, and each have five children so far. Our third daughter is currently expecting her first baby. After fifteen years in the Catholic Community of the Beatitudes, we dedicated ourselves to the ministry towards the engaged. We have been the Directors of the Office of Marriage and Family Life for the Diocese of Colorado Springs since 2005. We became American citizens in 2010 and now have dual citizenship: French and American. I love to take pictures and to scrapbook, I love drawing and crafts (salt-dough is my best!), hiking and gardening. I am the computer geek for our organization.
