I have been homeless since November of 2010. I consider myself blessed that I can sleep indoors, unlike many of my homeless friends, who have to spend nights outside, in all kinds of weather.
I returned to my Catholic faith in 2005, after an absence of thirty years.
Before that, I had already had an absence of about ten years. I tried to return to Holy Mother Church, but it didn't "take."
Things were very strange in the '70's.
