Hi. On this page I will explain you a little more about me.
I am Myrna. I live in Aruba, one of the most beautiful Islands in the Caribbean.
Our native language is Papiamento, but most of us speak English, Dutch and Spanish. This is because Aruba's most important income source is in the Tourism sector.
My husband Gabriel comes from Italy and we have two children, Mauro and Giacomo. Two wonderful young men now, both born on this Island.
From left to right: my youngest son Jack, me, my husband Gabriel and my eldest son Mauro. This photo was taken on the occasion of my Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
When our eldest son was eight years old both my husband and I have been invited to attend a Prayer session, and we went, curious to know what it was all about.
Little did we know that our dear God was there waiting to give us a special outpouring of His graces!
Both of us got a very special spiritual touch that day and some time later we joined a prayer group, which we are still attending till this day.
All these past years we have been growing in our faith and learning all the truths that lay only in the Catholic Church. Little by little we discovered that only the Catholic Church possessed the Complete Truth, the one Jesus entrusted to His disciples.
In the beginning it was not easy at all. I had to dispose of everything I knew that hindered me to be faithful to the inner inspirations of the Holy Spirit. Because I used to live a life that was very selfish. It was more like: everything in life was about me and my family and no one else mattered.
But my longing to grow in my love for God was of much help for me to overcome “the old me”.
And I noticed something else: time after time our Lord was showing me the wonderful reward He would give those who persevered in their faithfulness to Him.
Little by little I noticed how I was changing. The things that were so important for me were not that necessary anymore. My trust in the Lord grew stronger and stronger each day.
I met many obstacles in my life. I lost lots of friends because of my change of life. But I have encountered wonderful new friends also. Honest people who have the same interest that I have in my present life: To love God with all my might and all my heart and to love my neighbor as I love myself!
Because you see, after I discovered how much God loves me, it was not about me any more, but about Him and how I can serve Him the way He wants me to!
Like I mentioned before we have joined a prayer group, which we attend every Friday. I am active being of help with organizing special retraites for little groups to help the faithful to receive more knowledge about our rich Catholic Faith.
Two years ago, I stumbled upon this wonderful opportunity to build my own website and it came quite naturally to build a website about our Catholic Religion. But I wanted it to be more than that.
I wanted to share with all my sisters and brothers in Christ who happen to land on these pages the infinite treasures that lie in our Catholic Spirituality. Because the truth is that it's quite different to have a Christian belief than to have a Catholic Christian belief!
This website is my opportunity to share with you all the wonderful things I have learned about our Catholic Religion.
I am very happy that I chose for Jesus and His mother Mary. I have faith that when my life on this earth has come to an end, both of them will welcome me in the Everlasting Life!
In the meantime we will keep fighting this spiritual battle, so one day we too can say like the Apostle Paul to his brother in Christ, Timothy, how we have fought the good fight. How we have finished the race and kept our faith. And we can be sure that we too will be awarded the Crown of Righteousness on the day that we will stand before our Lord. Because those who have longed for His appearing will not be disappointed.
My dear sisters and brothers in Christ, if you feel you like to know more about me, feel free to make use of the Contact us page and I will get in touch with you to answer any questions you might have.
I hope you will enjoy these pages the same way I enjoyed writing them.
Go! Do not fear! And spread the
Holy Word of God to all Nations of the World
