Hi Shin!

I just joined the forum. I'm the guy from CA you PMed about the article on novels. But I have made the decision to leave that forum. There's just so much arguing there, and many of the posts push doubt. I have been led astray by some of those bad posts, and to make a long story short, God let me know that I was going the wrong way. I wasn't really benefitting from CAF, I was just addicted to reading posts and following threads. My conversation with you helped me decide to quit.

I've been lurking here for some time, and when I saw the thread on giving up TV, I knew this was the right place. On CAF, that thread would be full of angry libertines defending TV, bad-mouthing the saints, and resorting to name-calling and emotional arguments (I have participated in similar threads there). In fact, I bought a copy of Airwaves From Hell because of it. After reading the posts here, it became clear that this is a better place for people who want to be saints (my goal is to be a saint before I die; I'm 29, and I converted from atheism 2 1/2 years ago, so I hope that gives me enough time).

Saints' Books has helped me so much already. And thank you so much for the topics you've brought up here.

 angel bell    Welcome to the forums Paul!     angel bell

It's great to have you here. I hope you enjoy the place and join folks for coffee and prayers!

I always like it when someone has a new insight or shares a few words about how a quote inspired them.

It must be about half a year ago now that Fr. Frank Poncelet passed away. God rest his soul.

I hope I have enough time too! I'm so slow! But there's no other way to live than taking that beautiful journey step by step.

It's a bit quieter over here, but folks stick around and share priceless words. God keep you my friend.

I pray you have a great time here! Cheesy

hi, I am Audrey Bernadette Lee. I love your welcome notes!  Little Angel

I've always loved reading stories about saints, over and over again especially when I feel exhausted by earthly things. Their stories encourage me a lot.  Smiley They love our Lord and the peoples on earth with so much love. I still have a lot to learn from them.

My favourite prayer is the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. O Master grant that i may never seek..  Smiley

Welcome to the forum whiterockdove.
A beautiful bird isn't it, the white rock dove?
I read somewhere that in ancient times, the appearance of snow white dove  symbolized peace and holiness. Smiley

This is a nice little site!  

It has a very friendly feel to it, and the primary focus in growing in holiness...which is very edifying!
