… to God and to all my family and friends, living and deceased, but especially to the following Heavenly inspirations:

The Lord Holy Spirit, for keeping me on the Narrow Path with His signature blend of tenderness and tough love.

St. Dominic, my spiritual father, for inspiring me with so many things, especially courage and dependence on Divine Providence.

St. Catherine of Siena, patroness of all Lay Dominicans.

My paternal grandfather, who has always been a special guardian and inspiration to me.

My maternal grandmother, who helped teach me to read, among other things.

My Patrick, who helped to start me on the path to re-conversion to the Church.
