I am a revert Roman Catholic woman, a cradle Catholic who left the church for many years in an unfortunate convergence of Vatican II and my rebellious years.  The church allowed me back 20 years ago. I am recovering from alcoholism.  I suffer from major depression.

I am a novice iconographer.  Somedays I think that God has used my hands to create these windows to the Saints, and somedays I get puffed up and then quickly deflated.  Those days probably teach me the most.

I am a runner and have finished 13 half marathons and 2 marathons (yes, that is 26.2 miles).  If you saw me “running” down the street, you would probably say “What is that woman doing?”  I usually explain: I cannot go fast, but I can go far.

I try to find joy in each day, and ways to show my gratitude, love, and devotion to God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Hi, One Sober Catholic,
    My name is CJ and I’d like to contact you to ask about possibly posting information about my dissertation (which is an anonymous online study about couples and alcohol use). Is there any way that I could contact you? Thanks so much!

    Hi I’m Bob. I just started a bog: catholic and sober. I no longer attend AA ( for reasons of my own.). I now use what the Church has given us. Jesus Christ, the Church, the Sacraments, Our Holy Mother and all the Saints. I did not start my blog to bash AA. I just want to share how I stay sober through The Catholic Church. catholicandsober@wordpress.com
