I have started attending mass at our local Catholic church. I grew up in the Catholic church and after last Sunday's mass, I believe that God is calling me back to my roots and he gave me undeniable proof of just that. That proof came in the form of a song, Ave Maria. It was my grandmother's favorite song and was played during her funeral service. I was sitting there during mass doubting whether not I should be there, asking God to show me that I belong there and all of a sudden I hear Ave Maria being played by the choir. I broke down and started crying. Never before had I felt God's presence so clearly then I did at that moment. God and I still have some things that we need to work out, such as my marriage. It isn't valid in the Catholic church's eyes, so it needs to be con-validated. So I am unable to go to confession and communion at this time. I was also concerned that my wife was going to be very resistant to it all. So far she has been very supportive and believes that God was calling me back as well. She will not follow me to the church until she sees a firm and ongoing commitment to me attending the Catholic church however and does see the con-validation as another opportunity to have a marriage ceremony and have family attend this time. There are great things on the horizon!
