OK, so I finally “got around” to telling the last of my family members of my upcoming entry into the Catholic Church. I had saved for last my sister, the former nun. (As to the precise reasons she is no longer a nun, we don’t ask. She doesn’t share.)
Anyway, I finally did tell her, only to get a MAJOR LECTURE (via e-mail, thankfully) about not becoming too “old-school catholic”.
Other than ignore her, I really don’t know what to do with this bit of advice. I wasn’t at all aware that in one single e-mail she could derive the fact I was becoming “too old school”… I mean, compared to some of the folks around here, I am practically a New England Democrat!!! (Think Kennedy. Think Kerry.)
Oh well, at least now she knows. (And, truth be told, the only reason I made a point of telling her was that I figured someone else was going to wind up blowing it and telling her first. I know that would be hurtful to me, and I certainly wouldn’t want to hurt her).
I guess this was a mini-rant, rather than any sort of question. Questions I have and shall post elsewhere.
