I went to Mass last week. It felt right. It felt good. It was perfect timing.
Then I realized the reason why I've been avoiding Catholic churches so much these last few years- I would not know what to do if I walked in and a certain someone happened to be the guest priest or deacon for that weekend. How well do you think it'd go over, to walk up and slug a priest?
Yeah. Not so much.
BUT, that's when I said "God, I put my faith in You, that You will protect me from hurt when/if that time ever comes." *shrug* Here's to hoping!
I did also contact the leader for junior high/high school faith formation. I want to be involved. I know that God has given me so much that I need to share, it's not fair of me to keep it all bottled up inside just because the person who really helped me find who I am as a Christian and as a Catholic then renounced our friendship and crushed my soul! (hmmm.... I thought I was done being bitter- guess not!?)
So, yeah. Hopefully I will be able to meet with the director for the older kids' faith formation classes, and start helping out with that ASAP.
