the light shone in the darkness

I’ve been asked quite often lately why, after everything, I chose Jesus over the goddesses I worshipped for a while. Not only is that a legitimate question, it’s also a good one, and I’m grateful to be asked it. The short answer is in that the light of Christ shone in the darkness. Hecate wantedContinue reading “the light shone in the darkness”

the sacred art of stories

I was well over 30 years old when it occured to me, as someone who had been homeschooled in part so that I would not be exposed to science, that the creation stories in Genesis could be myths. I’d never considered that before, all I knew was that I was suddenly questioning the ludicrious ideaContinue reading “the sacred art of stories”

saint mary magdalene, pray for me

Saint Mary Magdalene, my patron, You once walked in darkness, you served the prince of darkness, and your life was hell. But then, you met Jesus. You saw Jesus, you chose Jesus. He saved you from your hell, and your life was forever changed. You renounced all you had been and all you had done,Continue reading “saint mary magdalene, pray for me”

tattoos, stories, prayer, redemption

My first tattoo I ever got was the word “grace” in cursive on my left wrist, with a date underneath it written like this 3-3-08. I still love the word grace on there, but I want to cover the date and I have a great way I want to fix that tattoo involving adding theContinue reading “tattoos, stories, prayer, redemption”

conversion and the rosary

I have been connecting with Bl. Bartolo Longo’s story so much. Although I was never and will never be a priest, I too got caught up in practicing witchcraft and messing in the occult. Bartolo was born into a Catholic family, but he rejected the faith and became a priest of Satan. He almost diedContinue reading “conversion and the rosary”

the power of the rosary

There once was a man who was a Satanic priest who became a Christian. That man’s name was Bartolo Longo. I read about Bl. Bartolo Longo about a month ago and was fascinated. This man was aware of the evil he had been involved with, and he was repentant, but unsure of whether God wouldContinue reading “the power of the rosary”

penance

I began to explore the life of St. Francis and his spirituality first because of the stigmata. As I looked further into his life, there were some other things I noticed also, one was his insistence on living penance. Until recently, I’d thought of penance as something that’s asked of me when I make aContinue reading “penance”

multiple spirituality

So, when MaryClare dies and goes to heaven or wherever it is that she’s going to be with God, do we all get to go with her, or is just her as the host that owns the body who gets to go? Sasha asked a friend of ours. If someone is going to ask aContinue reading “multiple spirituality”

why jesus?

I once went a place that I should not have been (well, I’ve been many places I should not have been, but this is just about this one), I went to the house of a man who had a small Pagan store in his home. I was there to purchase crystals, spells, runes and shitContinue reading “why jesus?”

redeeming family sins

I never wanted to homeschool. It was never a consideration. I thought it ought to be illegal, because I was abused by it and so were many others I know and our stories went unacknowledged with the rah rah homeschooling is amazing and the people who were hurt by it are few and far betweenContinue reading “redeeming family sins”
