Hello all, have lurked here for a month or so, joined today. Senior citizen, widower and live in a rural area in California.  Was born a Catholic but my folks weren't very into it. Have lived my life and maybe the last couple years have felt , dunno, "drawn" to develop a relationship with the Lord

I am so glad that you joined us. All you have to do for that relationship is ask God--not a priest--to forgive you for being a sinner, and thank Jesus for dying for you. Then ask Him to come into your life and fill you with His Spirit. This is Jesus is what saying to you when you take the Eucharist. He wants to live His life in you to love and forgive others, just as He did on earth. Then talk to God throughout the day and read your Bible. I just reread "The Practice of the Presence of God" by Brother Lawrence. It might inspire you as well.

We pour out our hearts when we talk to God, Instead of repeating prayers. And we look for Him to answer our questions, often in the Bible.

Read Philippians 4:4-9 It tells us how to pray and what we should think about. Then read the New Testament.

Blessings,

Willa
