My confirmation and first communion were wonderful! I had ached to take part in the Eucharist for months now and I finally got to. I was so excited! I was actually shaking while I was up front for confirmation. My leg was going a mile a minute and I was afraid that it might give out on me, luckily it didn’t. I was also nervous that I would somehow look silly and the seminarian who helps Father Mark told us before mass, “when in doubt look devout.” So that’s what I went for and I ended up not smiling much. It just resulted in me looking annoyed, rather than devout, in some of the pictures, but I promise I was excited.
Thanks for all the prayer and support you all have shown during my journey to the Catholic Church. It has meant a lot to me. This will definitely be a memorable Easter for the rest of my life and adds a whole other dimension to the significance of this day. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection than to become a full member of His body and the Church He founded.
Now that I am officially in the Church, I have changed the name of the blog. I guess I’m no longer ”returning” to Rome. I’ve arrived. So now I have named it after my patron saint.
Happy Easter everyone! Christ is risen!
