Intro for Lacy Meredith Francis Howard
Pat is posting Lacy's bio so here it is.
Just so the whole world knows:
His Excellency Martin D. Holley is my BFF (Best Friend Forever). It's official.
Next to Bishop Holley, Cardinal Arinze is the BFF Numero Dos. I'll get in to that in a minute. But for my bio, here goes...
My name is Lacy; I'm a convert! I used to be Lutheran, but then the Lord opened my eyes, and I came to the light. Praise God!!! So jibbily! I can count to three. During my time at the Catholic Student Center, I decided to go ahead become Catholic listening to the will of the Lord. And so here I am a Catholic! So sweet!
Well, during my first year of being Catholic, I got really involved in the pro-life movement, really involved in the Catholic Student Center and found solace in front of the Blessed Sacrament. So goes my life. After the conclusion of my sophomore year, I decided to take things to the next step and live the life of a martyr if the Lord would only give it to me. Maybe He will like St. Maximillian Kolbe, both spiritual and physical martyrdom.
Last summer, I walked from San Diego to Sacramento for the pro-life movement, and this summer, I hope to spend my summer spreading the message of the Theology of the Body and the Gospel of Life. God willing, this summer will be as awesome as last.
Who we are?
Conversion begins in our own hearts,which is why prayer is so important to our ministry. For this reason, everyday of our ten week walk begins with daily Mass. By receiving Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the grace to be the Love of Christ not only to those in our community but also to those we meet in the streets.
We walk throughout the day to be a witness of love. We are grounded in prayer-we pray with our lips, our hearts, and our bodies. In walking an average of twenty-five miles per day, we offer our fatigue as a gift of love to Christ and the people we meet. Our walking is both sacrifice and prayer.
