CathlicMom.com has a great Daily Gospel Reflection series this year, and I’m honored to be a part of it. Today is my turn again, and I’m talking about the Pearl of Great Price that is our Christian faith:
While I never officially left, I did my share of wandering spiritually in my 20′s. I would miss Mass, I didn’t go to Confession, and I generally gave little thought to much about Catholicism. I had a resurgence of faith through some Evangelical ministries, and when our first daughter was born, we started attending Mass regularly.
But it was when I was challenged by non-Catholics on points of the Faith that I started to study it more carefully and started living the Faith instead of just professing it on Sunday mornings. Slowly, through this study – and, eventually, through the study that came from homeschooling our children – I began to see what a treasure I had in the Catholic Church.
