As promised, last week I decorated my candle with my sponsor. The candle will be used at my confirmation at the Easter Vigil. After two years of hard work and classes I will finally become a Catholic. Everyone thinks I am doing the conversion for my fiance, but that's not the case. I had decided before I met him that I wanted to have a religion. I was baptised as a child in the United church, but never went to church ever. I attended a Luthern University, but not until my last year did I start attending chapel.
Now, in a week's time, I will enter the Catholic church. I'm very excited. More for the whole process to be complete. It's been a long time coming.
I will take my candle to my RCIA class on Wednesday and tell my fellow Elect the meaning of my candle. I am very excited to have it lit.
