Happy Anniversary to us! Pentecost is very special to our family.
18 years ago today our family of six was received into the Catholic Church! Blessed be God! Best decision ever! We’ve never looked back.
Thanks to Fr. Ed Fride of Christ the King in Ann Arbor Michigan for taking the time to meet with us, prepare us and receive us into Holy Mother Church.
This morning we went to Mass at our same parish. Fr. Ed is still the priest. Janet and I were in his communion line. Tears welled up in my eyes and rolled down my cheeks. He understood.
“Body of Christ,” he said. I replied with a choked voice, “Amen, 18 years!” He smiled.
