Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Martin and I am a Catholic from NY, USA.

I am currently running a catholic website with my wife - which offers prayer videos in 3 formats (video with voice over, no voice over and audio only) as well as entire bible content (KJV). In addition you can find bible quote pictures and a place where you can submit prayers for the community to support you in praying right along side you.

We created our community in the memory of my grandfather who passed away a few years ago. He was a huge icon in my life, a true father figure which i desperately needed. He was a very devoted catholic and an incredible person with patience, perseverance and compassion of no other. I know this for a simple fact because my grandmother is one hell of a person to deal with, she is literally the white impersonation of "Tyler Perrys Madea" character XDDD and I am not even exhaggerating :DDD.

Anyways, thats my story, I look forward to getting to know you all a little better!

Hello, Martin :wave

I agree with Arky on the Bible - don't sell yourself short with a KJV. Use either a Douay-Reims (if you're REALLY an English language aficionado and eat college-level reading for breakfast), NABRE or an NRSV-CE. You will hear pros and cons arguments regarding all three from board members, but those are the three generally-acceptable English language Catholic Bibles and the only way you will get the entire Word of God in English. The NABRE is the translation used by the USCCB in missals here in the U.S., while the NRSV-CE is the approved translation used by our fine neighbo(u)rs to the north in Canada.

And as for Madea, I grew up near Atlanta and have known many women like her. My grandmother, though, was the protestant version of Miss Daisy Werthan. To this day, every time I watch Driving Miss Daisy, I bust a gut laughing until the very last scene, when I cry my eyes out because I miss my grandmother so much. She's been gone over two decades now, and it still hurts. :cry:

And, like you, my grandfather was the only one who could influence my grandmother. There's quite the family story about that, but I've said enough already. It'll have to wait until another day.
