From DFA's Aunt:
I just got back from parent’s weekend with Julie (younger cousin in a private college). It was wonderful!
I teased her yesterday that all we did was pray and eat!
It was great. They had mass each day which is the most inspirational mass I have ever been at.
If you can imagine 2000 college students singing and responding with enthusiasm for Christ!!!
They had a praise and worship celebration last night which is singing
praise songs in
with 2000 students and prayers
for 2 hours!
We also visited the 24 hour Eucharistic chapel and it is always busy with people!
They have a tomb with several aborted babies and a perpetual flame. I kept crying with happiness because it was all so moving and spiritual.
Every time I step on her campus I feel the Holy Spirit!
I wish everyone could visit her college!
It is amazing how alive our faith is with people who pray.
God bless you all
and I pray your faith is alive
and on a continual increase!
See you soon!
MY EMAIL RESPONSE:
Dear Aunt Sharon,
I am glad that you and Julie had a great time visiting! Julie's school reminds me of my old Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA; which was a pretty tight knitt community. It sounds like she's found a great place to learn and relate! I'm not religious; however, I am glad that things are working out!
I know you asked me a question in an email earlier. You asked me "who is Kyle?" (That I moved from Milwaukee to Lake Elsinore with.)
He is actually my boyfriend. We have been together for almost 3 years. I didn't know if I should tell you, since I feel we lead different paths in life regarding happiness. Yet, I am always a fan of honesty... so I thought I would let you know.
I appreciate your emails, and I hope that everything is still going well for you and the family.
(feel free to call whenever!)
