He Is Risen!

Happy Easter to you all!

Last night my wife and I were confirmed in the Catholic faith. It was an amazing service, and we received Holy Communion for the first time.

May the Peace of Christ be upon you all, my friends.

Thanks for the blessing and congratulations. Not being a particularly religious man (not to be read as faithless), I thought Confirmation occured earlier in ones life as a Catholic or is that only for those born and raised as such?

Just curious,

Eli: Earlier for those raised as Catholics, yes. We began the conversion process about a year ago.

And I have never confused lack of religion with lack of faith. I also try not to confuse an abundance of religion with an abundance of faith.

As an old saying goes: Being in a church makes you a Christian like sleeping in a garage makes you a car.
