Fr. Matt Williams Encounters Stories and… (II)

Posted on December 16th, by in Confession, Discernment, Mary, Testimonies, Topics. No Comments

As pilgrims on a journey, we hit bumps on our road that are often hard to overcome and difficult to discern through. Decisions abound on the road of life. Some are clear as crystal, some are clear as a bog, but thankfully all Catholics have spiritual tools that can aide their personal discernment: spiritual directors, the Sacraments, lectio divina, and yes, !

Today’s story is the second installment of Fr. Matt Williams’ reversion to the Catholic Faith. Despite years of Catholic schools, the personal relationship with Catholicism never really took root during his youth. A trip to Medjugorie fixed that in 1994, which you heard about last week. But now, his second journey to Bosnia and Medjugorie leads Fr. Matt Williams to even bigger questions than, ‘do I really have to go to ?’ The question of discernment is on the horizon for this Catholic seeker of truth.

Listen on and share this story with family and friends if you know of someone who is struggling with discernment. The process can take years, or some times it is instantaneous, no matter the length, all Catholics are called to discern God’s will for their life, and then take action on that call. May we all invoke the sacraments like Fr. Matt Williams did in 1995 for our personal path of discernment through the lens of the Catholic faith.
