My family left the Catholic Church when I was 9. Since then, I became actively involved in various Protestant churches/movements for 30 years. At the age 21, I became a licensed minister and moved to Russia to smuggle Bibles into the Soviet Union and plant churches there. After a year and a half, I returned back to the States to receive my parents' and church's blessing to marry my Polish Catholic fiancée, Iwona Bednarz-Major. After a long 18-month proving period, I finally received my parents' blessing but not from my original sending church because the pastor recommended that I should marry someone else. Well shortly after marriage, I got ordained with a different church; and we then moved back overseas to serve as missionaries in Russia, Poland, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. It's been a wild and wonderful journey; but now I am finally returning home to the Catholic Church.
He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed: and My blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, abideth in Me, and I in him." - Jesus
