I have been a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous for 16 years and I have been a convert to the Catholic Church for 13 years. It was people in AA who introduced me to the Catholic Church. AA saved my life. AA helps me to stay sober and be a better and more effective Catholic, and my faith and practice in the Catholic Church helps me to be a better member of AA, affording me the opportunity to help those who still suffer and have no hope, as I once felt and experienced. I hope, through the mercy and love of God, you find sobriety and freedom from bondage. If there is anything I can do to help don’t hesitate to ask. I love being a member of AA (although sometimes frustrated, as a Catholic, with some of the things I hear in AA), and I love being a Catholic. These graces has given me a second chance at life that is amazing. God bless.
