What do you feel nourishes your Catholic spirituality?
The lord, my god, nourishes my spirit. Receiving him in the holy communion, praying, and listening to him thru the bible.
Could you give an example of something you treasure about St. Luke?
Being able to be close to the lord every day, and the people from St. Luke. Everyone is so great and so welcoming.
Could you name one or two persons who have been influential in your Catholic faith? Why?
My father and Padre Pio have influenced me the most. The father always like to spread the word of the lord. When he got sick from cancer that is where I think he showed me that nothing can separate us from the lord. He told me “ Nothing can every stop me from being close to the lord, I will forever praise him and adore him, no matter what happens.” Padre Pio to me was such an amazing man, just knowing about his life and realizing what tribulations and prosecutions he had to go thru and still did not turn his back towards the lord. Makes me realize that when I go thru difficult times no matter what, never turn my back to the lord because he is always there with me. The lord will never put me in a situation that I cannot handle. It may not seem that way at the time but he is there, guiding me.
What is your favorite Scripture passage?

But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?
