What was your relationship with God like as a child?
As a child I was confused about God and the Holy Trinity. We would go to Spanish mass regularly and I wasn’t able to comprehend how 3 beings could be one in the same. My parents taught us the Our Father and we would pray it before a trip, my mom would read to us before bed or tell us Bible Stories.
What about your teen and college age years?
I focused on other things- sports, school, serving in the military and going out with friends. I didn’t stop to think much about God, I just lived in the moment. While I was at Marine Corp Recruit Depot San Diego, California for 13 weeks of Marine Boot Camp I did attend Catholic Mass every weekend. It was my first time being away from my family and alone, but also a time to get away from the Drill Instructors and have some peace. I would pray to survive the upcoming week and ask God to keep my safe from injury. While in the Marine Corp I was tasked with the duty of being an Assistant Casualty Assistance Call Officer. This position was for Staff Non-Commission Officers, I was not even a Non-Commission Officer at the time. I was a 20 year old Lance Corporal. I was chosen because of my knowledge of the city and I was bilingual. Our job as CACO was to notify next of kin of any deceased Marine inside 300 mile radius of Houston. In 2004 the war in Iraq was at its worst. I remember doing 3 calls in 1 -2 weeks. Besides notifying next of kin, we also stayed with the families daily till ask to leave, transportation of the fallen Marine and burial ceremony. I was also part of funeral ceremonies for Marine veterans who had passed away and families asking for military honors. We averaged 3 a week. In 2004- 2005 I attended many churches of all types of religion, but I was only there for funerals. This experience in my life pushed me farther away from the church. I battled with alcoholism and depression to erase the pain I saw in so many families.Read More»
