Whenever I look back at my past, it looks like I have climbed the highest mountain. I can't imagine what I was? And what I am now? I used to be careless in my life. I was not serious about prayer, not serious in my studies and wasn't worried about the future. I was very careless for things, especially about time. I was ignorant about others and their difficulties.
I feel very blessed and fortunate that now my prayer life is better than ever before. Since I have joined the Formation House, things in my life have changed to a greater extent. Living in Miguel House for almost eight months now, my learning process is better than before. As I look a year behind, I did not have enough religious knowledge; I was unfamiliar with community life, irregular in my prayer and perhaps a very self-centred person. But now I feel that I am a changed person and more aware of God's presence in my life. I feel blessed to have a strong relationship with God through prayer and try my best to be a good companion to my other Brothers in the Formation House. I thank God for being so good to me and leading me to be a better person in my life and growing in my journey to discernment.
