Joy of Easter

And happy anniversary to me. Today is the twentieth anniversary of my Confirmation as a Catholic and my first reception of the Holy Eucharist. Prayers of thanksgiving to those who, prompted by the Holy Spirit, guided me to faith: Sr. Bettina of the Holy Cross Sisters, wherever you are; my dear friend A., who witnessed to me for years by her words and her joyful life what this whole Christianity thing was really about; E., who took me in hand to show me how to pray the rosary and have a few words with me about proper Catholic reverence.

Mary, Rosa Mystica, Rose of Sharon, my confirmation saint, pray and rejoice. Christus Resurrexit!

Happy Easter and congratulations!

Now when people ask your age you can smile and say, "Oh, I just turned 20 on Easter."

Twenty years! Congratulations!

I'm certain that Mary does indeed rejoice to see the fruit of your life - including this humble and thankful convert.
