I have chosen you to make my triumphant return to going to mass every weekend, like a good Catholic is supposed to, and like I haven’t been doing for months. I can honestly say that while I am still not sure about how I feel about the man made concepts, values, and teachings upheld by the Catholic church, I have missed making mass a part of my weekly routine. There is something so blissfully intoxicating about the ritual of a Catholic mass. Sitting in the pew or reciting the prayers with the rest of the congregation always makes me feel like I am “home again.” More and more, I crave that feeling. I am not sure what the future holds in store for my faith, but, this Advent I will join millions of Catholics around the world who are readying their hearts and homes for the arrival of the Christ Child. I hope and pray that when He humbly arrives in the manger four weeks from now, He will triumphantly returned to my heart and soul. I have missed Him.
in aching anticipation:
