Who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?
I am Anna Elaine Ibanez
By blood I am Irish-Hispanic
By citizenship I am American
By identity I am beloved.
By faith I am a daughter of God the Father entrusted to be perfected by His one holy Catholic Church.
As to my calling I strive to live with my feet on Earth and my heart in Heaven.
As to my mission I believe it is to heal and speak truth through the grace and will of God;
Heal the culture and reveal the truth through authentic goodness and beauty.
As to my heart it beats with and for the love of Jesus and His most venerable mother Mary.
I am a sinner, saved.
I am an imperfect soul being perfected by the mercy and love of Jesus.
I am broken and continually being healed.
I am no good apart from the grace and love of God.
I am incapable of any good or love apart from Jesus.
He allowed me to break down and built me back up.
He stripped me of every vain label I gave myself.
Everything I thought I was by my own accord and showed me how dependent I am on Him.
I never want to be apart from Him again.
He showed me who I truly am.
I am beloved.
I am loved and I choose now to love.
I long to love until it hurts.
Only then will I know I have given everything I have.
I strive to live wholeheartedly and authentically everyday.
I am holistically and passionately pro-life.
I integrate my pro-life philosophy into my interactions and care for all people.
I am His and I desire nothing more,
everything else is simply a beautiful gift.

Inspired by St. Teresa of Calcutta’s identity statement: “By blood I am Albanian. By citizenship I am Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the heart of Jesus.”
