Vision for Life
My name is Joshua Fatzinger. I am from Bowie, MD, one of thirteen amazing kids to two even more amazing parents. Born and raised Catholic, homeschooled through high-school, I joined the Seminary for 3 years after high-school. After discerning out I attended the University of Maryland, College Park. There I was challenged in my faith like I never had before. Seeing the war on faith in universities has made me believe even more in the urgency of FOCUS's mission in equipping college students for life though a real and passionate friendship with Christ. Please join my support team to give me the chance to fulfill my mission of becoming a saint and leading others closer to sanctity by the grace of Christ.
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?" Romans 8:31-35

Its been a long time since I feels nice to be back!

My oldest son's birthday:

April 15, 2014
My son loves Christ with his whole heart, soul, and when he and I attended 6:30am mass together I couldn't of picked out more perfect readings for him!

Reading 1 is 49:1-6

Hear me, O islands,
listen, O distant peoples.
The LORD called me from birth,
from my mother’s womb he gave me my name
He made of me a sharp-edged sword
and concealed me in the shadow of his arm.
He made me a polished arrow,
in his quiver he hid me.
You are my servant, he said to me,
Israel, through whom I show my glory.

Though I thought I had toiled in vain,
and for nothing, uselessly, spent my strength,
Yet my reward is with the LORD,
my recompense is with my God.
For now the LORD has spoken
who formed me as his servant from the womb,
That Jacob may be brought back to him
and Israel gathered to him;
And I am made glorious in the sight of the LORD,
and my God is now my strength!
It is too little, he says, for you to be my servant,
to raise up the tribes of Jacob,
and restore the survivors of Israel;
I will make you a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.

Responsorial Psalm ps 71:1-2, 3-4a, 5ab-6ab, 15 and 17

R. I will sing of your salvation.
In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me, and deliver me;
incline your ear to me, and save me.
R. I will sing of your salvation.
Be my rock of refuge,
a stronghold to give me safety,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked.
R. I will sing of your salvation.
For you are my hope, O Lord;
my trust, O God, from my youth.
On you I depend from birth;
from my mother’s womb you are my strength.
R. I will sing of your salvation.
My mouth shall declare your justice,
day by day your salvation.
O God, you have taught me from my youth,
and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds.
R. I will sing of your salvation.

My first baby turns 24!!!

Wow, aren't I 24? It feels like it was just yesterday when I was 24. Those were great days!!! Being 24 and expecting baby # 3. Feeling young and loving my babies!!! Learning how to be a wife and mommy.

I couldn't of asked for a better "honeymoon" gift than God sending you to daddy and I!!! You were "born old" and took care of each baby sibling like they were your own. Always mature, smart, and responsible. (even if teenage girls don't want those qualities!) Thanks for rejoicing with us with each baby and being there to help when we needed you. As your siblings always say, "She really raised the bar for our family!" Love God and trust and follow in HIS ways all the days of your life and all will go well!!! THY WILL BE DONE!!! Hope your year is full of miracles!!! Love ya!!!
