[quote=Paris Blues]Okay, I was glad that I came home to the Catholic Church…BUT…
Is there a reason why I don’t have my zeal anymore? I mean, before coming fully into the Church, I remember my big zeal but now after I got confirmed (after the priest put the oil on my head), my zeal has left me and now I feel like oh, it’s just another religion I’m in.
What’s the deal here? I know our Lord is in my after receiving Him in the Holy Eucharist but what is going on?
Is this normal for converts?
I was exactly the same way after Confirmation last May. I was baptized as a baby, went to confession, recieved the Eucharist. I was soooo excited that I would be Confirmed that when Confirmation actually came, I was left saying “Now what?” Since May, I’ve gone through my periods of zeal and the dryness, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. I don’t even know where I am right now with that (how’s that for confused?).
Everyone else here posted such great advice, I won’t try to say what they’ve already said. I just wanted to say, hey, you’re not as strange as you think.
