Things have continued to go smoothly in my conversion process. I've been attending RCIA weekly and have attended Mass the past two weekends (progress, not perfection). Last night at Mass, we celebrated our Rite of Acceptance. I enjoyed the ceremony and the symbolism behind it...being accepted into a Catholic community and hearing the members of the community pledge to welcome us and help us to feel a part of the life of the Church. It was a touching moment to receive the sign of the Cross on my forehead, eyes, ears, lips, shoulders, heart, hands and feet from my sponsor (my mother-in-law). We also received Bibles from Fr. Wayne during the ceremony.
It was also special to me that one of my favorite passages from the Old Testament was read during Mass. We actually printed part of this passage on the back of our programs at our wedding.
