    It is a tossup between joining the USMC, graduating from college, and the birth of my first child. I hope my wife does not read this!

    My marrige to a beautiful gal who led me on to the great life I have at 90years. She always would say (don’t you die on me) I didn’t. She is helping me from heaven right now with the aid of 9 children Thank God for all good things.

    When a fundy told me about Jesus and I tried to follow him. Now i am a member of his body, the Catholic Church. Sharing the Gospel is the greatest act of mercy to give a person.

    The birth of my two beautiful sons, one by natural childbirth and one by adoption; both equally exhilarating.

  5. Michelle Says:

    When I was about 30 weeks pregnant with my now 14-year-old son, I was in a serious car accident. The police officer who responded told me afterwards that I was lucky to have survived. As a result of the accident, there were concerns about the baby that I was still carrying. I knew God had protected me and would protect my unborn child, and I was right. That experience renewed my faith in God, a faith that I hold very dear.

    Thank you, President Hackette for your words. I had the privilege of hearing to you speak at my sisters graduation from the Mount. We were all blessed to be reminded of just how empowering Christ’s words are to us. I will keep CRS in my prayers as you continue to make a humble and strong presence in our world.

  7. Gordon Jewett Says:

    God’s gift of faith, a parent who was the definition of “mother”, and the birth of my son, the greatest gift God could give my wife and I.

  8. Mary Says:

    My immediate reaction was the births of my four children, but then, on reflection, I would say the moment I said “yes” to God…and the countless yes moments thereafter.

  9. Kim Washington Says:

    I have been blessed to have a wonderful husband, three grown children and granchildren. My parents are still with us and I am one of 6 children. I am bless by all and all are dear to me, but my first thought after reading your question was my re-conversion to Catholism at 40. I am a cradle catholic but God reached out and drew me closer to Him and it has affected the balance of my days. I am so grateful for His faithfulness in seeing me through a period of lukewarmness. His love is so great.

  10. Dave Morris Says:

    When both my wife and I were baptized. We both said yes to God and were baptized together. That was at a protestant church. Four years ago we both went through the RCIA program together and have grown closer to Jesus and each other. Thank you God!

    The most important event in my life was the day I married my sweetheart. He was in the USMC, stationed in Camp Lejeune, No.Carolina, and could only get a weekend pass to come home and marry me. I was so in love, so proud of him, and so happy that my heart felt like it was going to explode! We were married for 50 years, and I lost him to lung cancer 6 weeks after our 50th anniversary. Now, 3 1/2 yrs later, I still love him with all my heart and soul, and look forward to the day when we will be together once again, in our heavenly home.

    My First Holy Communion
    I still remember it
    1 May 1966
    I even remember parts of the sermon Father gave…..
    I have gone on to be married over 30 years
    birth 11 children
    2 into the arms of the Lord

    but I believe the 1st time I received Jesus
    tops it all

  13. Kathy Kehrman Says:

    The most important event of my life was my conception. Without it, I would not have been born. After that there are too many important events to chose from. Thank You, God, for creating me and giving me great parents. Thank You for loving each of us into being.

  14. John Wysocki Says:

    When I experienced the fullness of god in the experience of love , and understood that all sentient beings have experienced god , even if they are afraid to use those particular words to refer to god or grace.

  15. Sandy Says:

    A week on the Navajo reservation supervising service work by teens from our church. I saw deep poverty first hand, but slowly experienced an alternative culture through the eyes of a medicine man. It changed the direction of my life to one of full time social justice work. And that makes God the center of my life, where He should be.

  16. Phil Orta Says:

    Everything changed when I did my Cursillo weekend retreat 12 years ago. I finally realized the importance of becoming a shepherd. Instead of remaining a sheep for the rest of my life, I now minister to inmates. Prison ministry has changed my life. Thank you,
    Phil Orta

    May 15, 2008, the day I received a kidney transplant from Sr. Maureen, a member of my Dominican community. Maureen’s extraordinary generosity has enabled me to live a healthy, active life and avoid dialysis.

    Maureen was moved to make this life-changing gift after her 50th anniversary as a Dominican Sister, hoping that I will be able to experience the same joy on my 50th anniversary in 2015. So far, so good!

    Most important event in my life?
    Knowing GOD since early childhood and having my 4 sons…I am sooooooooo blessed.Because they all love GOD too! Even after their earthly Father abandoned us, we kept our faith thru terrible times.

  19. LaRae Says:

    The most important event in my life was when God opened my heart to a spirit of forgiveness. I think this was the greatest gift God could have ever given me and I am so thankful!

  20. Vernon Hull Says:

    The most important event in my life was a windy, cold day in February 1973 when I asked Jesus to come into my heart and miracle of miracles He Did! Jesus still lives in my heart… He just will not give up on me.
