This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

We had a good cry this morning because the topic was allowing God to fill the holes in us after experiencing the hurts or disappointments in life.
I shared how after my very private miscarriage 25 years ago May I turned my back on Gods love. But when I lost my son a year ago May I found myself being called by God to a deeper more spiritual prayer life and that I felt his healing touch in the days following. Yes I still have moments when I ask why me Lord, but I take time to pray in those moments until I feel his warm embrace once more....
So today I just want to shout from the roof tops - Praise God!
I was just a bit mystified & embarrassed when I missed my turn going to my parents house last night. I have traveled that road a number of times & I am very familiar with the roads. So when I realized I failed to turn when I was supposed to & wound up doubling back to a nearby town I was basically telling myself how silly I was and it caused me to remember how much Andrew hated it when "I went sight seeing, especially at night".
Early morning on my way back home on the very stretch of road that I missed my turn to travel on was a herd of about a dozen horses & several llamas. Seeing that I wondered if they were on that road last night and I realized my guardian angel may have once more worked overtime on my behalf keeping me safe from harm. Because horses and llamas are difficult to see when driving at night.
So since yesterday was also the Feast of St Andrew I thank God, St Andrew, St Michael the Archangel & my Guardian Angel for once more keeping me safe from harm while driving.
I thank God for assisting me in closing a business deal yesterday. And I thank God ahead of time that my youngest will close at least 1 of 2 he has working today!
