I'm just 15 days away from my confirmation! As Chris from Calling Rome Home & Catholic Converts blogs noted - he wasn't even aware that I hadn't been received into the Church yet. So I'm guessing others missed that as well. If you did...then surprise!
I've got all kinds of thoughts running through my head about it. Excitement, anticipation, joy, and even a little nervousness too. I don't think every one of my friends/relatives was the keenest to the idea of me becoming a Catholic. But nevertheless I worked out the kinks I had with the Church in my head a long time ago.
This is a good time to begin a series of meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary. Consider it a "group" thing if you'd like to join in. For some of you I know its going to be a bit weird if you aren't Catholic or Christian so I'll keep them as short as possible. These are just little tidbits of where my mind is at while praying the Rosary and my thoughts on each mystery. I am not professing to have any kind of glorious knowledge on anything, but I've been called on the carpet for being mean here on my blog and thought this might clear the air a little and help prepare my conscience for my next big step.
I figured there are 3 traditional sets with 5 mysteries in each, so that comes to 15. (15 days left...) Feel free to leave your personal thoughts on each in the comment box. You don't have to be a Catholic or even a "Rosary regular" to do so. We'll begin with the Joyful Mysteries.
