How did I end up being a Catholic ?
I always knew I was a Christian as a result of Dr. David Livingstone’s efforts. But under that, I’d be an Anglican...so that didn’t make sense.
Geographically speaking, I should have been an Adventist, on both sides of my family, or a New apostolic...I should be Protestant on other accounts.( actually ran away from the church for a while)
So I texted my dad a month ago and asked How/ why we are Catholic.
Turns out, I’m Catholic as a result of Franciscan missionaries to Africa...These friars converted my grandpa to Catholicism.
And years later, I randomly thought to attend a Franciscan university...not knowing that I have history with the order.
As if that wasn’t enough, I found out that I was baptized by a Franciscan friar, born on st Francis of Assisi’s feast day(Day St Francis died), and almost given the name Francis cause Dad had a dream in which he was told to give me the name ‘Francis’ , and my godfather’s name at Baptism happed to be Mr. Francis Chika.
I found that intel a while back, while doing an autobiography...Both myself and my father didn’t realize the connections and coincidences.
Turns out there’s no randomness with God.
I am exactly where he wants me.
Seems the banner summarizes it well.
I knew you, before I formed you...it’s almost as if my steps have been ordered before hand...ok I don’t know what this all means, but God, it’s more than a coincidence. - 5 hours ago
