After a long bout of contemplation, I am finally taking the steps to become Catholic.
I was baptized at my home church, a Church of Christ, when I was 16. I had asked Jesus into my heart in either 3rd or 4th grade, but it was the months before my baptism that I began to seriously grasp my Christianity. I have a general interest in religion, and that basically led me to the Catholic church at some point. To be in a Catholic church is simply an amazing comfort to me; and so much of my own moral base is what Catholicism teaches. It just made so much sense to do this, not simply for myself, but out of reverence for Christ.
I haven't begun RCIA yet. In fact, tomorrow will be the first time I will have stepped foot into a Catholic church in months. I recently moved to Monterey, Ca from Smalltown, Michigan. So while my decision is made and my heart is convicted, I don't know if I'll be able to begin RCIA this year. Either way, we shall see!
