Dena,

I'm glad you found such peace. I'll look at the web site.

I've thought a great deal about why I remain Catholic. When I was young, we moved a lot. But no matter where in the country we moved, Church was basically the same. There was comfort in that, that you could count on the sameness and I felt like I belonged. I always thought it was about the traditions and the way the churches looked. I know now that it was my faith that God was listening to me as I opened up to him. And Church was really the only safe place to open up my feelings. I had to hide myself away from everything and I couldn't tell anyone else.

While my parents did lots of things wrong, I'm grateful that they took me to church and allowed me to have this foundational experience.
