Good morning brotheres and sisters!

As an introduction, I am a 4 year revert (from some degree of indifference) to this wonderful faith of ours. I checked out this site more thoroughly after spending a wonderful week in Israel recently. I have to apologize for rushing right through the front door and into the "family room" to start chatting, so I backed up to say hi and introduce myself. I'm afraid my biggest challenge in the rule book is brevity, but I'll try (after this post)!

I am the father of 3 here, and one in heaven. I'm a radiation oncologist (type of cancer doc). After acheiving every goal I'd set in life, found I still wasn't happy, in fact quite miserable, because my emphasis was on the wrong sylla'ble. 2 prayers kept me going, "God if you are real help me find you", and "Even the dogs get the scaps from the table". Boy did he answer big time! Now I could spend forever reading, contemplating, praying. Work has taken on deeper perspective with the opportunity to interact in a meaningful way with people, especially when the doors of faith open up. Not that I wasn't compassionate before, but it means even more now. For penance now I read medical journals - the agony!

Its always a pleasure to be amongst Catholic friends and those who are curious about the Catholic faith. A great joy arises in sharing the word, because our world is so badly in need, and the New Evangelization is happeninng! I know you folks in the Michigan area have Catholic radio, and I want to let everyone know about Its spreading across the nation with good, solid Catholic programming. Many am and fm station sin the Midwest, and in Florida.

By the way, I chose my "nickname" after reading a Steubenville article describing their educational philosophy -dynamic orthodoxy, at the time I was trying to think of one, and it fit perfectly (although it would have been better if I were an orthopedic surgeon!) :)

God bless you all,

Dynamic Orthodoc
