"Do not Imagine that prayer is simply words. Prayer is the desire for God, an indescribable devotion, not given by people, but brought about by God's grace"
My name is Mike, and I'm the author of this little prayer blog. I am a 19 year old Canadian Roman Catholic who is the youngest of four children. Currently, I am a university student who is studying philosophy with the aspirations to work one way or another within the Catholic Church. I have been an altar server since I was eight years old and am currently my parishes master of ceremonies. I am part of my parishes liturgy committee and I have been a catechism teacher for six years.
I love doing anthing creative. Be it photography, videography or painting. Being creative allows me to challenge myself to do things out of the ordinary... to capture a picture not everyone would, or to make some cool edits in a video or capture interesting shots for the video. I love to bike around during the summer, and get out in the cold winters. I enjoy hanging out with friends and I love my family immensely. I also love to cook a mean steak dinner and enjoy a good apple pie.
My Catholic faith has always been an important part of my life. Ever since I was a little kid I was captivated by what the priest was doing within the Mass. My family would always sit in the back and even at the age of four or five I would be asking to sit in the front so that I could see what was happening. The Mass, and all forms of liturgy have always interested me and I love to learn more about it and teach others about it.
That is where, seven years ago I had the idea of starting a blog. I originally had another blog, that lasted a couple of years. As the course of that blogs life went on, I began to notice that I had become more and more compelled with the idea and concept of prayer. It was too the point where, almost every post came back to prayer.
I have always found it fascinating that an immense God would allow himself to become private and personal with his children who have a desire for him. It always struck me greatly that we can have an intimate time with Our God personally and express to him our praise, petitions and pains. This I find has been the greatest strength in my life; that I am able to pray and be strengthened by God, the loving father.
When I started high school five years ago, I decided to start this little Catholic blog. On this blog I have shared many Sunday reflections based on the Canadian Catholic readings for each weekend, shared many ideas and inspirations from scripture. I have shared prayers and compiled information of saints ( mainly Saint Michael the Archangel...the greatest saint.... yes, lots of bias there.) I have also shared many happenings in my life that have inspired me to write and I have tackled some apologetic questions regarding the church.
Still today, I write Sunday reflections of the weekends readings, and I write prayers often too! I also write Wednesday posts, which are sometimes prayers, sometimes reflections and other times apologetic type posts. I also will be starting more liturgical based posts, and answering questions regarding the liturgy.
