My Catholic began this past Christmas eve when I was bored and the idea of going to Church popped into my head. I enjoyed it so much (except the Eucharist, I had no idea what that was at the time) I went again the following Sunday and almost every week. Shortly before lent I told the father that I was never baptized but also told him I wasn’t sure my living situation (home was being foreclosed for unpaid taxes) would let me do 8 months of RCIA classes. After a meeting, I was told I could be baptized during the Easter Vigil. It was an enjoyable (but nervous) experience over the course of lent. 40 days later I got baptized in a day I won’t forget! The Easter Vigil was incredible, the best mass I ever attended and I felt honored to participate in it.
It’s been an incredible journey and I look forward to where it goes next. I’ve been making the Lord part of my everyday life including praying the rosary daily and trying to avoid sin.
