This true story that inspired the 2007 novel CLIMBING THE MOUNTAIN BAREFOOT WITH JESUS encapsulates an abiding love for Christ and His Apostolic Church. It highlights joy in charity and suffering; when our Lord undeniably reveals Himself through prayer, adoration, the seven Sacraments, the Mass; and within clergy, religious, and a multitude of loved ones who help increase our faith. Revolving around family life and the essence of stewardship is the very heart of the story: our indisputable belief in the Real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist; taught by the pastor, Father Alex, within the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults classroom of Our Mother of Sorrows Church. What sets this book apart from countless conversion stories is its intention to testify to an audience of the faithful with intestinal fortitude and to non-religious alike seeking to know the Truth-and most specifically, to draw fallen-away Catholics home to the Catholic Church. Within the text are Scripture verses transcribed verbatim from the Holy Bible; not watered down, nor paraphrased. May the Lord bless each dearly loved reader willing to dissect and digest this narrative and then discern the call to do whatever He tells us.
