THE BLOG NAME: My Catholic Faith is just that – A Rose Amid Thorns. Roses are the eye-drawing beauty in any garden, as a Catholic woman should be in a world of turmoil. She should be a beacon of valiant love. No rose is as beautiful without it’s thorns – no glory is made without sufferings and tribulations. Plus roses are my favourite flower!
THE GOAL: As a twenty-something in a world that demands the disregard of virtue, faith, and true Love, I choose to go against the current. To hold fast and true to those treasures which have been so viciously denied our generation. A Rose Amid Thorns is simple turf, where everyday duty calls us to higher heights and we strive for sainthood through said duties. It is an outlet where I hope to share the small meaningful anythings I come across, with other like-minded Catholics I know are out there. It is a calm, cool, collected (yet passionate) corner. I know what it is like to be walking upstream against a quick and vicious current, and I hope to give encouragement to my fellow twenty & thirty something Catholics, to keep fighting the good fight and seeking to fulfill God’s will in our lives.
THE DAMSEL: I am a twenty-something Catholic Canadian who loves the Latin mass and any liturgy done the good ol’ fashioned way, striving for both holiness and accomplishing God’s will in my life. I shoot guns, hike mountains, enjoy Irish whiskey around a bonfire, cook, detest the words “empowering” & “fellowship” (in every usage but LOTR, obviously), teach group fitness classes, dabble in tap dance, love to travel, sing, read classic novels and fairytales, am a “fairy god-auntie-mother” to a nymph child, spend endless hours chatting away the day with my family, swim in Canadian lakes, drink tea, interior decorate by hobby and trade, and love to spend hours on a riverbank soaking in the beauty.
If you like what you read, please drop a note to say hello and follow the blog, or contact me via email for any reason at all at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I love to be in contact with other like-minded Catholics, and believe that support and community are healthy ways of encouraging and maintaining our narrow paths to heaven.
