Ana StPaul OP
About, Yes, about – 10 years ago a new Catholic Social Media website was launched in South Africa. The creators and dreamers were in my Parish and I got involved – before long I was part of the leading Team and thus began this little project of mine.
When, after a long slog of around 8 years and many curved balls – mostly financial ones (being in South Africa makes the financial aspects very difficult) – I left and began my own little project here.
I have been known as Anastpaul online, for much longer than the 10 years though – my name is Ana, St Paul is one of my two Confirmation Saints and I have always been very involved with catechesis and evangelisation in some form or another, trusting always in the passion and zeal of St Paul.
I am a ‘cradle’ Catholic, a Dominican Tertiary, brought up in a wholly Catholic home by Spanish and Italian parents (with a bit of Lithuanian Jewish blood too). Rosary twice a week as a family, daily prayer, weekly Confession, Mass every day during Lent, etc etc. We went to a Dominican Convent Private School and Christian Brothers schools , belonged to all available Catholic apostolates and just “Breathed Catholic”.
And so it has been – married a Catholic and our children too “Breath Catholic”, for our blood is Catholic and is graced by the Holy Trinity and our forefathers are the Apostles. Mary is our Holy Mother and our friends are the Saints and Angels.
I live a totally Catholic life, involved in our Parish, running various apostolates there, am an ‘old-fashioned Catholic’ of the Spanish school and am 100% true to the Magisterium, to Pope Francis and to our home in Rome.
I know this much is true – if you ‘Breath Catholic” so too will your children grow up truly Catholic! Amen.
