I can't believe it has been a whole year since I converted to Catholicism. My entire family was shocked -- most especially my husband. I used to be so critical of the Catholic Church -- my father was and my grandmother was and my husband IS. But I love it for all its warts. I got my palms on Palm Sunday, Thursday is Holy Thursday and then Good Friday and Saturday night is the Easter Vigil. I am helping to host the reception for the new converts Saturday night. That is when they go through the very long Mass and become a Catholic. It is a very impressive experience.
