Why I am a Catholic
#10

"By the grace of God.

He enlightens my mind and strengthens my faith day by day. My flesh fights against it, my mind is ever doubtful and my will is weak but the grace of God keeps me on the right track. Like Abraham "who against hope believed in hope" [Romans 4:18], I continue to trust and believe because He moves me to do so. He sustains me and with the eyes of faith I recognise the truth and hold on to it. In whom else may I glory but in the Lord? How bountiful is His mercy! Indeed, He is the good shepherd who "giveth his life for his sheep." [John 10:11]

"Let my mouth be filled with praise, that I may sing thy glory; thy greatness all the day long." [Psalm 70:8"]


This is exactly what I would say.
I would add only all this comes through the Blessed Virgin Mary, so I go to Her in prayer most often, as this is the same as going to Her Son.
