“Life holds only one tragedy, ultimately: not to have become a saint”
— Charles Peguy
I’m just your average, everyday Catholic girl (if that sort of stereotype even exists) stumbling about in the world. Most people would consider me to be incredibly shy, but you can probably get me talking if you know the right subjects. While being an analytical scientist from head to toe (B.S. and M.Sc), I still manage to hold a special place in my heart for old fashioned romanticism.
I attend St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis, which is run by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (Check out the picture at the top of the page!!). You can visit the Institute’s website for more info www.institute-christ-king.org/home/stlouis.
A friend of mine told me I should start a blog. So I did. How long I will keep it up is another story. I’m not an incredible writer and I usually don’t have anything interesting to say, so I mainly write for my own benefit and entertainment. I named the blog “The Greatest Tragedy” after the quote at the top of the page. I did this to remind myself that every part of my life is to strive to avoid such a tragedy, even in the most seemingly insignificant ways, and I hope that my posts inspire you to strive for sanctity too!
