Introduction I was born and raised Catholic, attended Catholic schools, an all-girl's Catholic high school and a Catholic university for two years before transferring to a larger secular college. It was at the latter when I discovered inter-denominational groups and decided that Rome had fallen short in my oh-so-wise 20 year-old eyes and I wanted "something more." I made a quick turn into a Presbyterian church, a sidestep into a Conservative Baptist church, and then a casual stroll into the Vineyard Christian Fellowship where I spent years in various ministries and serving on a church-planting team. Bottom line: I spent 25 years away from the RC Church. I married a very good man in 2001. My first marriage. His second. And yes, you guessed right. Of course he isn't Catholic. (Why simplify my life...well, ever?) I have fought this for a year now. In 2007, I started to attend Mass in tiny droplets. Something was calling me and I knew enough from my spiritual history that it wasn't AT&T. God was calling me home.

You can punch a hole in an apple using a straw. How do you think that makes your milkshake feel?

Underappreciated and depending upon my mood, violated.
