I just want to conclude the Lenten portion of our blog with this:
In my entire life, despite my interest in theology, my devotion to Christ, and my general attempts at "being a good person", I have never really understood the concept of "being in love" as an analogy of one's faith until today. I am completely in love with the Catholic faith and traditions. It totally makes sense to me now. I'm also really looking forward to seeing how my faith grows and matures. I don't know whether I should keep this to a private journal, or whether I may continue to document these transitions through public blogging, however. We'll just see how things go.
Sometime towards the beginning of this blog (maybe more around the middle, I don't remember), I mentioned that I was concerned that doing a blog for Lent wasn't "good enough" as giving something up for Lent was. Upon reflection, I'm extremely glad that I had the opportunity to document the last stages of my journey from Protestantism to Catholicism. I also think that doing these blogs with more relation to my faith has given me the opportunity to reflect more truthfully about where I am and where I stand with God. When Angela and I started this blog, it really wasn't our intentions to be overtly political or religious. We just wanted an outlet to write and a way to keep our relationship together after college. I think this year, our blog became something more for me.
I hope sincerely that this little project will continue-if not over the course of the year, at least next year for Lent. If this happens to be Angela's last year, however, it has been an honor and a privilege for me to work with someone as amazing as her.
