Happy Easter Monday! (Or, Why I Cried Saturday Night)

Posted on Facebook on Sunday morning:

Feeling so incredibly happy and humbled and blessed this morning. Beautiful Easter Vigil last night and, as always, I cried during the baptisms, receptions, and confirmations, remembering where Atticus and I came from, and where we are now. When the priest (to those being received into the Church) spoke the words, "His loving kindness has led you here," I almost lost it. I could hear the voice of the priest who received Atticus into the Church, saying the same words 15 years ago.

I love going to the Easter Vigil. I was received into the the church 15 years ago, just like Atticus, and each year when I attend the vigil I recall that night when I became a Catholic and am just so happy for those who are being received. Each year part of me just wants to stand up and cheer for them and tell them how awesome it is to be Catholic.

Thanks, Faith!

Yes, Karen, every Easter Vigil brings my "anniversary" to mind, too, as well as Atticus's. It's 20 years this year for me!
