    I was already attending daily mass and praying the rosary daily when I lived my Cursillo Weekend but I realized during my weekend that I was not giving the importance, respect, reverence and devotion to the sacraments required from a practicing Catholic. I was not in grace due to these facts. Once I followed the sacraments, I fell deeply in love with the Lord. I noticed a real conversion internally once I started to give the sacraments my full attention. My life had never been so full of joy and peace. I have an immense love for my brothers and sisters- in-Christ whereever I meet them. I openly confess my love for God and His sacraments. Man’s salvation is Jesus and with the Church and His sacraments that He left behind to minister us into a holy life..
