Mark and Amy getting together with each other—or anyone else—was by no means a foregone conclusion. In fact, each were tired of the frustrations associated with dating, but were giving it one final try
Cade and Nicole were far apart, he in Texas and she in Connecticut. But the Holy Spirit was quietly at work to bring them together, and it started with his dog, Bella.
Nicole decided she had three basic requirements for any dating partner. Of course they had to be Catholic. They had to like hiking. And they had to own a dog—and not just any dog, but a black lab specifically. Cade, a devotee of the Latin Mass met the first requirement and was praying a novena to St. Therese The Little Flower for “a little light in life.” He got a message from Nicole.
Jacob & Sammi were each skeptical of online dating. Furthermore, they were separated by a 34-hour drive and neither one wanted a long-distance relationship. The percentage chance they would end up in the CatholicMatch member story archives could not have been very high.
But the Holy Spirit isn’t bound by “percentage chance” and He brought Jacob and Sammi together anyway.

Sal told Annie he would call her when he went west. Sure enough, he called every day.
