I grew up in a dysfunctional household. It was a home filled with selfishness and contempt. I never felt treasured as an individual person. Always feeling awkward and out of place, I tried desperately to be accepted and worthy.
One cool morning, a woman I had met asked a question that really made me think. “Do we serve God or others? Do we seek to be a people pleaser?” This stopped me dead in my tracks.
When Fr. Jorge first suggested I go to adoration, I was unprepared for how difficult it would be and what it would bring. I didn’t expect to be challenged by Jesus to more fully live my faith by entering the confessional and pouring my heart out before him.
