[A is for apparitions - your favorite]: St. Faustina, on several of her travels, was accompanied by an angel. But on one such occasion, she also saw and angel over each church. I like that: an angel guards each of our parishes.
[B is for Bible - the one you read most often]: New American Bible
[C is for Charism - the one you would most like to have]: I would like to be able to bring Jesus to people, that when they see me, they see not me but Him.
[D is for Doctor of the Church - your favorite]: I don't know them. I've only read St. Augustine of Hippo's "Confessions," so St. Augustine it is
[E is for Essential Prayer - What’s yours?]: Hail Mary

[J is for Jesus - When did you first meet Him?]: I was very little (haven't started school yet, I don't think). Some strangers came to our house. After they left I asked my mother who they were. She told me they came to tell her of some man who was nailed to a cross through his hands a feet. I was very sad to hear of it, and sad every time I thought of it. Looking back, I'm sure they were referring to Jesus.
