Walking Gospel Roads

The homily at mass today was about continuing to walk the Gospel Roads in our lives and standing up for our beliefs.  If we aren’t practicing what we believe and facing resentment from others then why do we believe what we do?
When I was leaving to go to a Jesuit university everyone kept telling me how liberal the Jesuits are. After graduating from there and continuing to grow in my faith I’ve realized there are some aspects I love as well as aspects that didn’t help me as much.  After this week with the Salesians I’ve begun to really understand the differences in how things are done.  I love them both equally, but as a Salesian, everyone can be included and the community is more conservative which is nice while we are standing up for what we believe.
All that being said, I think it’s time for me to drop the pseudonym and take a step confidently in my faith by introducing myself to you all.
My name is Juli, I recently turned 24 and I am a conservative Catholic who just wants to work with youth and young adults and spread God’s Love.
God Bless and thank you to all my new Salesian friends,
*JuLi*

About Juli

I received my B.S. in Counseling and Human Services and a minor in Theology and Religious Studies and my M.A. in Organizational Leadership in Higher Education. Through a strange twist of fate, I ended up in the Human Resources field and at a company that I really love. I'm not much of a writer because I tend to write how I talk and when I tell stories I tend to ramble and tell way too many details. I love writing though because it's fun to get all my thoughts down. I also love drawing, I love photos, and anything artistic really.
