As a life-long Catholic, I approached my first trip to Conyers with an openness.
However, as a police officer of seven years, I still felt a strong influence toward
I believe in the Conyers apparitions, I believe in the apparitions because of what
has changed in my life and in the lives of the people I have affected... or as I
should say, Christ has affected. The words and messages of Christ and the Blessed
Mother have rung true in my life.
Although I realize my scriptural knowledge is limited and it is therefore impossible
for me to realize the synonymity between Christ's words in Conyers and those written
in scripture, I can only tell you what has happened in my life. The messages in
Conyers have significantly deepened my faith, have brought me back to the central
vision of the Gospel, and have shown me the importance of the sacramental life of
the church. In short, Conyers does not make me think of Conyers. Conyers makes me
think of my Catholic faith and the importance of the sacraments therein.
I now say the rosary daily. I now attend mass with a greater fervor and understanding
of its importance. Confession, which I attend at least monthly, now brings tears
to my eyes because of what I have learned. I now seek a greater understanding of
the Catholic faith and realize how important my faith is to me.
