Dear Ivy,
Thanks for your kind words about Fr. DeGrandis. You're correct about the love he has for Jesus, and also for Mary and Joseph, I must add.You say, "I prayed and I prayed but I think nothing is happened." I assure you that indeed something has happened. Among other things, you have become even more dear to Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Everybody's faith is shaken from time to time, but usually one emerges witheven greater faith. My advice is "don't worry about your faith, just keep praying." You will eventually awaken with much stronger faith, as you move to a new, higher level of conversion.

A path has been laid out for you as it has for everyone. You need to carefully and honestly assess your talents - what are you good at doing? This is one of the surest ways to ascertain "your path" because the Lord gives you whatever you need to accomplish your work here on earth. The answer to this should point you in pursuit of your career opportunity at this time. If you still can't figure out a path, you may try what you like and see whether this works out well for you. Because if it is your path, you will be given noticeable help; the angels are so eager to aid in your success.

We will pray for you and your family, that our Lord will shine his light even brighter upon your path. We will pray that you accept the challengeand go for the gold, the gold of the new Heavenly Jerusalem. May God continue to bless you and your entire family in a special way.
Father and Gene and Chu

Hi, my name is Ivy, I'm a brazilian and catholic. I knew the Fr. Degrandis six years ago and I few the love this man feel for Jesus. (I'm sorry about my english because I'm learning.) I don't know what I do with my life, I prayed and I prayed but I think nothing is happened and I'm seeing my faith decrease. Some times I guess I don't believe in Jesus, I don't believe anything. What do I have to do? Please, pray for me and my family we need. I wnat to write more about my family and I but it is difficult. For now and everything: Thank you so much. God bless you. Ivy
