However, the Lord specializes in the miraculous and often calls us to trust even when it doesn’t make sense. Eileen and I became great friends and I discovered that she was in the process of ending the previous relationship. We both knew that we were meant for each other and eventually began dating. After only a few months we knew that we should be together and got engaged. Less than a year later, we were standing before God at St. John Neumann parish in Mt. Laurel, NJ proclaiming our marriage vows. Despite some infertility issues and some very serious pregnancy issues, the Lord has blessed us with two very visible signs of the love that Eileen and I have for each other –our 12 year old twins, Mary and Elizabeth.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I am very grateful for the gift of my precious wife. She is a woman of strong faith and has helped me to grow much closer to Our Lord. Together, we travel the road which will hopefully lead us to the Lord in heaven. I can never fully express to her my appreciation for giving up her own career aspirations in order to be a stay at home Mom and raise our family. Eileen is incredibly supportive of my work with The Catholic Truth and gives me the encouragement to keep going when it gets difficult. She is my hero and I want everyone to know how much I love her.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart…I Love You!!!
