Poems for a Faithful Heart
Love poems abound. To love is as natural as breathing and we seek it from many who could never give it to us. Why not seek it from whom it can be found? This book is titled "Poems For a Faithful Heart" because it is a collection of inspirational poems for God, the One with a Faithful Heart. He is the Lover who seeks us and will never disappoint us.

Single People Can Be Happy, Too!
It’s not the easiest time to be a Catholic.
More and more people are leaving the faith and the attraction of the secular world to many can no longer be denied. But this is not the time to be disheartened. This is the time to cling ever more tightly to God, to our Mother Mary and to all the saints who have never abandoned the Church. This is the time to be brave and to fill our hearts with as much light as we possibly could.
You and I have been called to live at this very hour.
Let us help each other carry on each day, showing the world that there is still a difference between a life lived without God and a life lived for and with God. Let our very lives become a testimony to that incomparable joy and peace that only comes from the love of God.
“Dear friends, may no adversity paralyze you. Be afraid neither of the world, nor of the future, nor of your weakness. The Lord has allowed you to live in this moment of history so that, by your faith, his name will continue to resound throughout the world.”― Pope Benedict XVI
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
- J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of The Ring)
Let’s do this together…
Only God's Love heals. I invite you to walk with me. Together, let us draw nearer to Jesus.
“To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” ― St. Augustine
Hi, I’m Jocelyn! I’m not a sister or a nun. You won’t see any halo over my head. But I trust that God can turn even the worst of sinners into saints. And despite my weaknesses, I must trust in His Infinite Mercy and Love.
I used to be an auditor, but I have always felt called to be a writer. It has been more than ten years since I became a full-time writer. During those years, I have set up and maintained my websites, published more than 15 books and developed various religious apps (e.g. God’s Promises and Catholic Answers & Apologetics).
When I’m not busy reading or writing, I spend time with my loving family. We enjoy cooking, eating and watching Korean dramas and movies.
Being an introvert, I’m also fond of listening to music and composing songs. I enjoy moments of solitude such as walking along the beach at sunset or gazing at the sky on a starlit night.
I may be single, but I am not alone. Jesus has always been with me and I could never find a love greater than His. Let me share with you a part of my story as you subscribe to Catholic Diary.

“The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet it is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: Small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
