Today is likely to prove among the most important days of my life. I was enrolled and invested in the Brown Scapular at Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Silver City, NM by Rev. Fr. Gabriel, O.S.B. I must say I don't know how my life will turn out, but I do know the ending and I know that the battle being waged here on earth will be won and Our Blessed Lord and His Blessed Mother will be victorius over satan and his evil menions.
I found the Traditional Mass and the Society several years ago, in 2004 during a time in my life when I was searching for something, which turned out to be G-d. I found G-d and his Blessed Mother at a small chapel is southern North Carolina, in the town of Mt. Holly where a group of Catholics and a very Holy Priest, Rev. Fr. Novak were celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I knew I had found the truth then, but only returned there once more due to my work situation. Now in 2009 I have rediscovered Tradition and a group of Holy monks here in Silver City, NM. In between was a period in which I steadily got disgusted with the outrageous abuses in nearly every parish I went to. I have longed for some time for the Catholic faith that those before 1962 practiced and have found that in only a few parishes, namely those run by the Society and those by the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest. Deo Gratias, I have finally found the True Faith and hopefully will be able to live that faith through the rest of my life.
