Who I Am

 

 

Dear Reader,

Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you find something interesting which can add to your life in some way. A brief introduction for those who either don’t know me or are visiting for the first time. I’m a man in my early thirties from Ireland. I spent the best part of my twenties in seminary, discerning a calling to Priesthood. Just as COVID 19 began to appear in Europe, I decided to take a step back from my progression towards ordination. Leaving seminary was a difficult choice to make, but I thought it the best one, feeling I had more to learn in life. Since then, I have worked on farms in order to pay my bills.

My main concern in life is to live a good, holy life, because I believe this is the way to happiness, in this life and the next. Needless to say, I fall far short of my target of goodness and holiness. But with the mercy of God, so much is possible. So much.

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything, perhaps three years. I have wanted to get back to blogging for a while, as there is so much happening in the world now. I will largely offer the perspective of a Catholic in my posts, whatever I happen to write on. I have a broad range of interests but I only consider myself well informed when it comes to theology and philosophy. As I’ve said, hopefully I can offer you something. Thanks for reading.

God bless you.

Tony.

    I love to travel as well and yet I do enjoy my quiet time at home and my routine. It’s odd to think about. Very nice meeting you!

    1. Yes, it’s quite a paradox, really! Thanks for stopping by, nice to meet you too. 🙂

    You have inspired me. My pen is itching to write about my visit to the Holy Land. Coming soon if the Lord allows my pen to start writing.

    1. I’m glad I could be of some help, Sue. I look forward to reading your post 🙂 Have you heard of the Camino the Santiago? I wrote an article on it a few weeks back called ‘The Way.’ It may interest you.

    No I haven’t but I’ll try to get to your article about it. I was so inspired I was up until midnight writing, “Slow down pen!” Hope you enjoy it. 🙂
