I also have a place in my heart for converts. I became involved with the RCIA program at the mission. We have many people who come to our mission seeking food and shelter, and they find that and God. I love watching people who are on fire not only with love for God, but for the Catholic Church. I learn so much from them because they do not take this for granted. We cradle Catholics just sometimes tow the line and go along without stopping to really study our faith. My most favorite thing is when we take our candidates to the Chrism Mass and just watch their faces as they take it all in. And I take a deep breath and smell the incense, and think about how we as Catholics are rich in history, tradition and faith. This is truly the Church that Jesus began. We have saints and theologians, century after century who have stood up for our beliefs, who did not allow them to be watered down. The truth cannot be watered down. Our converts come, because they have found the truth.
So welcome to my two new followers. Thank you for joining me in my musings. I am not a theologian, just a simple mom who loves her church passionately. I love my God that way too. He is my all, my everything. Glad we have met on our journey back to Him. We need to help each other. We may be strangers in this world, but we are brothers and sisters in the next.
Welcome my sisters in Christ!
