Yes, I know: One more Catholic convert blog
I know, there are hundreds of converts setting up blogs and chatting about their conversion. Why bother? For me, as for many, it’s a desire to chronicle my journey. Although I’m finishing my third year as a Catholic this Easter, I still feel very new to the whole Catholic thing, probably because I continue to be the primary caregiver for my 98 year old mom and that makes it difficult to get out and participate, meet other Catholics, and even to learn and practice my new faith.
What you can expect to find here — and what you won’t
Let’s just say I’m not into the whole controversy thing. I’m new at this and I don’t presume to have any super-duper knowledge or insight about the Catholic faith, the Church, or even well-known Catholics. You won’t find me ranting, raving, or waving religion at politics or even at you. I’m definitely not an apologist; I don’t have those skills or knowledge. I know what I know and that’s what I know. If you’re still looking to define me, then think “traditionalist.”
Living Catholic, being Catholic, reading and writing Catholic
I will share my discoveries, thoughts, and even questions. I have a deep interest in Catholic devotions, Catholic writers, and Catholic books. I’m currently participating in The Year of Faith so you can expect to find me sharing a few nuggets here and there. I love Christian art. If you know me, you know of my deep interest in iconography. I’m fascinated with rosaries, chaplets and the rosary, itself. And don’t forget the saints, their stories, and, yes, even their books and writings.
That’s enough for now. If you’re intrigued, I hope you’ll subscribe for email updates. Visit my new “Catholic” Facebook fan page, and follow my Catholic journey on Twitter. Now tell me, will I soon be like Sally Fields and be shouting out “You like me?”
I hope you really, really do and will tell me what you think about my new adventure in the comments below.
