taken on that day in our pool!
God started working on me that day, I remembered the way I felt when I came into the charismatic church, how I thought I knew everything there was to know about God and worship and how I was proven wrong. I began to wonder about what I didn't know about the Catholic faith. I had to admit, most of the Catholics I knew did not seem to be practicing Christians. Most of them were cradle Catholics who were nominal Christians at best. I could honestly think of only three people in my entire life experience who were, what I would have considered, "born again" Catholics. Who seemed to have an authentic relationship with Jesus and were also authentically Catholic. It was a rarity and I saw them more as the exception to the rule. They were Christians in spite of being Catholic and not because of it.
Next installment...the controversy of women's place in the church and how reading the early church fathers led me to attend my first Mass.
