Conversion: Driven by Thirst


Seeking

Asking

Not content to live on the surface

Eating, drinking, shopping or buried in entertainment

Aware of a hollow within

Thirsty for more of God’s presence.

Searching for meaning.

Empty, even though  ’saved’

It drove me to

Question

Lombard artist (ca. 1520), Madonna and Child

Listen.

Desperate

I stepped out in faith,

Letting go of old prejudices against Catholics

Curious

If the Eucharist really was the Body of Christ

Then I needed to ,eat, share

Trusting in the witness of millions of saints who had gone before me

Embracing the unknown,

The mysteries

Walking into the Unknown

To discover that

Mystery is liberating

Joyful

fulfilling

Embraced by a Heavenly Mother

Surrounded by a cloud of witnesses

Plugged into a Mystical Body
