I really love being Catholic. It makes me so happy just to write those words. I wish I could convey my love so that others could see what I see.
The Church is a good mother.
She helps me grow closer to Jesus. She teaches me how to pray. She loves art, music and beauty.
She taught me about marriage and the family. She showed me how they are a reflection of the Trinity. This insight is the the firm foundation for all of what I write about here.
She gave me my baptism and my confirmation. She gave me Sacred Scriptures and teaches me what they mean. She gives me the fulfillment of John 6:53 every Sunday, the body and blood of our Lord, as He commanded.
She gave me an identity, one I will have forever.
I know these things because she is His bride, and she loves her Bridegroom. They are one. Where she is, He is. Where He is, she is.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I love the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
