I sometimes ask God why He didn’t show me the way to the Catholic Church sooner. Why did He wait until I was 20 years old to bring me home? I keep thinking about the things that I missed growing up Catholic. I’m filled with sorrow over the fact that my entire family doesn’t know the beauty of the Church.
But then I remember that St. Kateri Tekakwitha joined the Church when she was 20.
St. Edith Stein’s mother never converted either.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton formed her own religious order.
St. Helena was the mother of Constantine the Great and found the True Cross.
Our Lady of Guadeloupe appeared to St. Juan Diego.
St. Mary Magdalene was visited by the Risen Christ.
Christ lead me home exactly in His time and He has great things in store for me.
