On this day, thirty years ago, Sherry Weddell and Yr. Obdt. Svt. were received into the Catholic Church at Sacred Heart parish in Seattle, in the very shadow of the Space Needle.
I will remember it as long as I live: my first confession (a *powerful* experience of grace and healing), my conditional baptism (it’s complicated), and the experience of saying the Creed with the whole congregation at our back. Plus, were Confirmed. In fact, I received five of the seven sacraments and the other two I didn’t want, so that was good.
Moreover, five years later to the day, Marcus Grodi was received into the Church as well.
December 20 is just a good day all around, thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
