An early congratulations to you all coming into the Church today on this Easter Vigil! I hope you’re all excited! Be prayerful, eat beforehand, and rejoice!
Thank you so much! I have had a lovely day with surprise visits from family members and pleasant fun with my children. My youngest daughter has begged to be able to come to the vigil tonight ( My husband will be home with the other children) and I decided to let her, so she has been like an excited jumping bean all day ( she is 12). We are just having tea, and then getting ready to go. My heart is a little overwhelmed, and I know I am going to cry!!
Headed to practice and first confession now. Little nervous lol
Been there, done that 13 years ago. Still have the t-shirt
Many thanks! Am extremely nervous, pacing about the room, and not sure what to do with the extra time … except pray, of course. Thanks for starting the line of thought that ended with that notion!
@Fauken beat me to it. I was planning the welcome home party thread for tomorrow.
I like more then one party!!!
No problem! Pray and breathe!
. Wait a minute are you Catholic yet? Happy Easter to all.
Nope, not yet!
Thank you! I’m still a few hours away as I’m on the West Coast.
Laughing because the first thing I will do when I get in is change my profile.
Just had a light late lunch and am going to go get ready. By nine PM PDT I will be Home.
EVERY BLESSING & GRACE to you today and always and WELCOME HOME!
Hi guys! I am a brand shiny new Catholic!!!
Father C told me I made him cry when I received communion for the first time because I was clearly so emotional myself. Honestly, honestly, one of the hardest, easiest, most thrilling things I have done. I was so incredibly nervous, and of shell shocked afterwards. We were all invited to the presbytery for a drink at the end to receive our certificates, and everyone was so excited and we were all hugging each other.
One of the single best moments of my life
Congratulations! I’m right behind you!!! Just a couple more hours to go.
See you on the other side.
Praying for you!
I’m home. And here am I now, other side of the Tiber. Thanks to all!
Feels good, doesn’t it? Does your forehead still smell like chrism?
