Russ and Deborah Rentler...

Posted by Picasa
We thought you did great! Deborah, I could relate to your regretting leaving the CC. I do too, when I think that for those 26 years we were away, I could have been receiving Jesus in the Eucharist and the sacrament of Confession!
Russ, don't worry about "choking up" when speaking about the Eucharist. Your honest heartfelt words brought tears to my eyes, and it was nothing short of an incredibly powerful testimony to the love and humility of our Lord. He who humbles Himself to come to us in the consecrated host, is overwhelming. I know others were deeply touched and moved by yours and Deb's journey(s).
God bless you both, and know we're praying for your sons. Our boys weren't brought up Catholic, though they were baptized in the Church, (thank God!) They'll be coming into their full communion with Christ and His Church one of these days. The time is in God's hands though, and not ours. We will remain confident in our prayers and full of HOPE. Your boys and ours are good kids, and will trust in Our Lady that they'll be brought Home, just as we were. It may take a few more years, but we know St. Monica is praying with us, and look how her prayers were answered. From prayers and tears of dear St. Monica,
the Church has...
Saint Augustine!

Thanks so much Susie for all your prayers and encouragement. We really sensed the Communion of the saints bigtime!
Yes, I almost started bawling when I talked about my boys!
Thanks again God bless

Hi Marie
The program is aired again at least here in Omaha on Sat. 10 p.m. and Sunday at 2 a.m. So maybe you can catch it again, or try www.EWTN.com audio archives and maybe you can download the audio or even a video. Well worth trying to find!
