I am Lucy



Hi, I’m Lucy Bieri, a mother of a grown up son and Welcome to Faith Essential – Where We Make Becoming Catholic Easy For You! 

I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t know about the Church and Jesus. I was born Catholic and was grateful that my parents took me to church at a very young age. I enjoyed their activities when growing up.

But as a young adult, I strayed from the Lord’s sheltering wings for many years.

It was years of horrible mistakes and temptations. I knew for sure something was missing in my life. When it clicked in me, the Lord has given us the weapon to stand any situation, I went running back to the only faith I knew well.  From then on, life has been different I knew without a doubt, that life with Jesus wasn’t only a better life, but a safer, more productive, blessed life.

I don’t know where I’d be today without Jesus. It’s has not been an easy road, but it’s been one of grace and help. It’s not been a comfortable journey, but one of supernatural strength and encouragement from the Only One Who Matters.

Life with Jesus is an abundant life. Though it’s not a perfect but one I wouldn’t trade it for any other life without Him. It’s a life of peace, hope and grace. I can rest in His Wonderful Hands knowing, he will always be there for me. No Matter What.

Say the Hail Holy Queen – It brings special power when power is needed.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,

our Life, our Sweetness, and our Hope.

To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.

To Thee do we send up our sighs mourning

and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, most gracious Advocate,

Thine Eyes of Mercy toward us,

and after this our exile show us the

Blessed Fruit of thy Womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Pray for us O Holy Mother of God

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. AMEN
