Welcome to the Catholic Wide Web according to me, Kathy Stocki. As I grow in my faith I am finding out about all the things I just don’t know, all of the ministries that other people are working on, the issues of the faith on personal and political levels, the beauty and the saving graces of the faith. So as I learn I will share that knowledge here.
A little about myself. I am a cradle Catholic, but was quite apathetic about the faith, then about 20 years ago I slowly began my faith journey. I didn’t even realize I was on the journey until about ten years ago. Then my mom got sick with cancer and a Catholic radio bumper sticker appeared about the same time. Catholic radio and Fr. Corapi have shown me the way home. (Yes, I know. Fr. Corapi…. but his catechism series was invaluable to me at the time.) Once I became somewhat stable in my faith life, God started me on another journey. One of physical healing. I was all messed up, but traditional medicine wasn’t helping me. So I began a “holistic” healing journey. Sadly, I found Catholic sites that have dissed all of holistic healing modalities as “new age”. I have now added another component to my journey, discovering what is and isn’t acceptable to a Catholic in search of “alternative” healing, because many of us have lost “faith” in the traditional medical culture. God created us to be wonderfully made, with the gift of healing. Natural healing is from God, we just need to sort out the mess and confusion!
p.s. I am doing my best to make sure that all of the Catholic websites that I link to are faithful to the Magesterium of the Catholic Church. But if I do end up linking to a site that is schismatic or otherwise against the Catholic Church or the Pope please let me know. Thanks again.
