Well, at least for this blog, it's finished. I can't believe how long it took me to do it! I meant to simply give a more detailed answer to the question, "So, how did you end up back at a Catholic church?" Well, I should have known better. My Italian verbosity wasn't going to be curtailed by a silly thing called a blog post. Oh, no. I had to write almost a novel as an answer.
So, click on the link at the left and you can read the entire thing if you have a half-hour to kill. Or, take it section-by-section. When I copied the text and pasted it on a document, it ended up being about 27 pages, single-spaced. I intend to write a book about my return with the specific purpose of attracting Catholics who are now in non-denominational churches. My story will start it off, with a combination of "What I Love About Catholicism" blog entries mixed in. I will most like self-publish it when I'm done and will definitely announce it happily when the whole enchilada is complete. (Think of a confetti-strewn parade around my home...)
Thank you, everyone, for your encouragement and feedback. It means more to me than you'll ever know. Hopefully I'll create something worth sharing, something my mom would be proud of, and most importantly, something God will use to glorify His name. Amen and Amen. :-)
