Baptist becomes reluctant Catholic

I know, I know, I have a perverse sense of humor, but this line from this achingly honest piece by a former Baptist seminarian just charmed me:

I called my dad crying on January 28th. I was going to become Catholic and hated the idea so much.

As far as I’m concerned, the kid’s a natural! I bet he ends up being a priest!

Welcome to the Catholic Church, Steven. As Paul Johnson said, “come on in; it’s awful!” And we just love it.
