How Spirit of Catholic Success was born!
Welcome to my story! My name is Christine Canino. I am the founder and creator of Spirit of Catholic Success. I am a wife, mother, and Third order Carmelite. This is the birth story of Spirit of Catholic Success.
Like many people, I went from one thing to the next looking for purpose, meaning and success. After graduating college in 1986, I married and stared my career as a computer professional. I worked hard to “climb” the corporate ladder. After a lot of hard work, stress, and health issues, I decided my ladder was leaning against the wrong wall. So when after taking three years to conceiving my daughter, I left work to be a full time, stay at home mother. During the years as a stay at home mother, I tried a few different work options, including office work and network marketing. However, none of the options really gave me the purpose and meaning I was looking for. It wasn’t until I started working with a group online that I actually took the time to ask God, “What do you want me to do?”. I prayed and waited for three months for the answer.
The answer came on Friday Oct. 16, 2015. I was driving from my home to my friend’s house for the beginning of my 10 day vacation. I began the drive by praying the rosary. I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit so strong. I made a call and gracefully bowed out of another network marketing business that I had recently become involved in. I continued to pray. I was praying for everyone by name that I knew. I was praising and thanking God. This went on for hours. Out of the blue, suddenly all the pieces fell into place. I was so overcome by what was given to me that I was bawling my eyes out and had to exit and stop at a gas station. God hit me like a ton of bricks! It was during this experience that God gave me, Spirit of Catholic Success. Also, the idea that Spirit of Catholic Success would feed a special charity called, ‘Seeds of Charity’. It took time for me to listen and understand what Spirit of Catholic Success would be. The mission of Spirit of Catholic Success is in imitation of Mary, and in union with Christ to help achieve “the restoration of supernatural life to souls” (St. John Paul II).
