Jessica Maria Andrea; I'm a Roman
Catholic in the most beautiful love
story ever told - that of Christ and His
Beloved. PRO-LIFE; made by Love Himself, to love & be loved in return. I am a religious studies and Spanish double major, almost done with my undergrad, looking to be a theology professor, and continue youth ministry and mission work abroad - these are just my plans, but I'm also discerning Christ's plans for my life. I'm a singer and performer, but currently taking a little bit of a break to focus on school and my ministry. This blog is bits and pieces of my life, and my spiritual journey. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Luke 12:34

Today is the big day!!! Every year here in CT, we run/host an international Catholic youth conference called Convivio, part of the ecclesial movement the Christian Life Movement, and the Sodalite spirituality. Anywho, we work all year to show Christ to 400 teens in one weekend, and today is the day! Today through Sunday, we will be Gods tools. The theme this year is “I Have Called You Friends” PLEASE pray for us but more importantly for our participants and their open hearts!!

Oh blood and water which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You. #divinemercy #Jesus #Christ #catholic #truelove
Mary’s always at the side of Jesus. Wherever He is, she is too. But, without the reality of her Son, she isn’t who she is..so wherever Mary is, in turn, Jesus is as well. She wants to point us to Him! #catholic #Jesus #Mary
