About the pilgrim...

Moving through a life filled with challenges and dreams, joys and sorrows, as a (now single) mother of five, writer, youth minister, religious education director, theater director, artist, musician, while still a lover of nature and wilderness...

...yet I have struggled through disillusionment, confusion, divorce, death, injustice, failure, chronic illness and the range of heartbreak and failures, joys and inspirations that come with our lives.

Along my journey through struggles, He has formed me in the crucible of life leading me to His Sacred Heart.

Through trials and graces I have come to know and love deeply the most Perfect, most Sacred Heart of my Lord, Jesus. The prayers you read are of my journey through these struggles and graces to the Heart of my Beloved where I continue to struggle with my failures and trials, yet am overwhelmed by His tender love, mercy and graces.

It is my greatest hope and desire to love Him as He so desires to be loved, immensely, completely, tenderly, and to share this treasure of love He offers with His people, moving hearts to love Him deeply as He so desires and deserves.

About a servant of His Heart..

A “cradle Catholic”, Depression child, with 16 years of Catholic school education….42 months of wartime Naval service…father of 6 sons, who lost their mother to melanoma at age 49....blessed by a loving second wife in a 15 year marriage....still working at this late stage in life, I first became drawn to His Heart 18 years ago, when I read the astonishing "12 Promises" and wanted to learn more about the Devotion and to practice it.

This led to establishing the Sacred Heart Devotion in my own parish. His Spirit guided me to develop the Sacred Heart Prayer Booklet 4 years ago when I recognized the essential prayers were not available in one source.

When my wife, a web designer, offered to develop a Sacred Heart website to create broader reach to the renewal of the Devotion, I accepted gladly. We went online with the first informative and instructive Sacred Heart Devotion website, www.sacredheartdevotion.com, in early 1999.

I am thankful for His grace to have been chosen, through the action of His Spirit, to help Him in both this Renewal and now this new Conversion effort with our second site, the Prayer Retreat; it could not and would not have come into being without the invaluable, inspired collaboration and creative contributions in the poems, readings and reflections of “the pilgrim”.

If I can be a laborer who came last to his vineyard and yet be granted the same wages as those who came first, I shall praise Him for His mercy and be eternally grateful for the unfathomable love of His Sacred Heart, which made it possible.
