… “What?!” you say. While going through the process myself was tortuous and loathsome, I actually enjoyed being a sponsor. Talking with non-Catholics and the curious alike ignites that original fascination and passion I have for the Church.
My best friend is a Lutheran, she is dating a Catholic. We can talk for hours about matters of faith. She wants to learn more about Catholicism so she can better understand the person she has feelings for. She says she’ll never convert… but I know better.
I sometimes worry that my over zealousness might be a bit too much, coming off to strong. I am afraid of estranging people with my grandiose and romantic notions of the liturgy and the richness of the Church. No one wants to be that Catholic, the dramatic uber kind, that does more harm than good… turning people off and scaring them away. People, who would be other wise open to the Faith… until they spoke to you.
