Can you believe I never answered Biddy??
hmmm a question….ok, kind of an odd question: have you ever considered changing churches? i.e. not being catholic anymore?
A: Um, No.
explanation: If you ever met my mother you too would know that changing churches OR religion is NOT an option. I am 41 years old and my mother still calls every weekend to see what mass I went to. Not so much anymore though since I’m taking Dad to church…so she already knows when I go.
Drew is being raised Catholic as well.. we’re talking about First Communion weekend all!! Very exciting stuff. My non-catholic husband wants to get Drew a replacement DS as a gift. I don’t even want to explain..rosary’s, bibles, books, money.. These are acceptable gifts, NOT electronics. Oh well.
I will never forget learning that most of the bible was stories..written for a simple man to understand and should not be taken word for word. I was heartbroken, more so than the Santa story. Faith, Religion, Hope..they are all so personal and so individual. Right now I’m at the same church I was baptised.. talk to me in 10 years…we’ll see where I am then.
