Coming to a Day for Yourself was the start of a journey that changed my life around and brought faith to live for me. (Noel)

Now that a little time has settled I can sum up my "Lectio Week' with two major happenings:
1. I realised 'I seek a truth' and its the Gospels and Catholicism I am obviously drawn to.
2. I felt I matured that week more than any other time in my life, that I am now as good as grown up! Grown up enough to put together a plan, rather than follow one's nose from month to month. (A.M.)
