Default Greetings

My name is John, raised Catholic in NYC, Catholic schools, Chruch on Sundays. Recently realized that the faith is so rich. Also that we must be pro-active in seeking out the faith and not to sit idol and expect to obtain heaven by sloth. I am a pro-life advocate and am involved with young Catholic missionaries who are 20 years my junior but 100 times more informed about the faith than I am. Its been 4 years and I have grown more in knowlege and in my faith than I have my entire life. I also had my first personal experience with Conchita and Garabandal about 15 years ago. I was very impressed with her and the message, but then slipped back into my complacent sinful ways until recently when something happened that brought Garabandal back to me. I appreciate the chance to participate in all discussions.
God Bless

Hello John, and welcome.

When you say that you had your first personal experience with Conchita and Garabandal 15 years ago, do you mean that you heard her speak in person? You live in New York which is where she lives, so I thought this might be possible.
