You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

About this site
Each day, we walk our path of life. The path may be easy or strenuous, narrow or wide, short or long. We have the freedom to choose any path, and to change paths at any time.
Those long, strenuous paths require more preparation before taking the first step and periodic renewal of supplies and rest. But, by the end, the walk is much more satisfying and enlightening. The greater the effort, the greater the reward.
Our Lord does not abandon us, regardless of the paths we take. He is there to guide, comfort and heal. But the paths we take and the preparations we make are still of our own choosing.
Catholic Paths was created to help Catholics choose their paths and prepare for their daily walk with teachings, inspirations, meditations and prayer. May each step of your daily walk bring you one step closer to unity and joy in our Lord.

My wife and I have been married over 40 years and enjoy walking the paths together. We have served our Lord in Prayer Meetings, Life in the Spirit Seminars and community service. Today, we co-teach a Faith Formation class and I also assist with Youth Ministry. Being retired I guess, I get volunteered into the odd painting or maintenance job for the church now and then.
Family has always been important and we have actively participated in our children's sporting and school events. Now, the grandchildren rule.
