Joy coursing through my LIFE!
Walking down the aisle of The Basilica of St Mary on my wedding day in 1978 between my parents seems like an appropriate way to start today after just rereading my mom's section of the book, Spiritual Journeys, in which she shares our conversion story in a chapter entitled, A letter to Charlotte. Why? I had been Catholic for 7 glorious years at this point in my early Catholic days and gone through my discernment of becoming a religious sister...my nun years. I attended daily mass here at The Basilica with my single Catholic friends and fallen head over heels in love with my Beloved Catholic Church! My dad had left the ministry as a Protestant Minister to become a permanent deacon in The Catholic Church and married us!
In the home of my mother-in-law after mass we visited with 3 of Pat's sisters, who are going through her things. We are invited to take back the things we have given her. I noticed the silver icon of Mary with baby Jesus from Rome, which we had gifted to her 13 years ago when we visited Maria while studying in Rome. Then resting in her bookcase was the book...Spiritual Journeys!
