Hi I am Aniela. I was going to go to Medjugorje just last month but ended up deathly sick and almost died. Maybe next time. Saw a thread on here so I joined up to reply to it. Am I allowed to reply to old threads? I was brought up Catholic by my Catholic mom. My dad is Agnostic. My one brother is Catholic but my other brother is Agnostic. I was not a fervent Catholic but since 2009 I am closer to God and care about my faith and now wear a Scapular. I am not good at saying the Rosary or Divine Mercy prayer every day but I know I should. I do when I am with my mom. She has inspired me and taught me a lot. Most of my friends are Agnostic so really I only have my mom.
