Yep. She really is old enough. Our Katie Girl received her second sacrament today. What a day for everyone! I must admit that tears streamed down my face several times tonight. I’m so thankful for our faith and the rich tradition of our Sacraments and life of holiness. God is good. We are so proud to be Catholic.

She requested fried chicken and an ice cream cake as her celebratory meal. I am proud to say that I don’t fry food so we opted to pick it up instead from the Colonel himself. Everyone was pleased to say the least. Fried Chicken is this southern girl’s favorite!

Katie’s friend Nora, from PSR, happened to sit down next to us. Katie was so thrilled and proudly informed us that they sit together during every Monday night class. How fitting that they’d share today together also.

Our beautiful Church, St. Brigid. Deacon Leo Gahafer was the celebrant at tonight’s service. She made her first reconciliation with a dear priest, Fr. David Daly, LC and as her parents we were able to help her renew her baptismal promises in a private prayer.

Notice the shadow behind Katie….I love it!!!! Sort of reminds me of Jesus’ promise to love us and wrap his arms around us. He celebrates each moment that one sheep returns to the flock. Tonight, it was an honor to be there as Katie made this first step (on her own) to be part of the Church and live a Sacramental life. God is good!

We are so proud of you sweet girl. It makes us happy to know that when we asked you if you felt any different, your response was simply, “Yes. My heart feels so heavy with all the grace that is in it.” We agree. You do have a lot of grace in that heart and soul of yours. We are honored to share part of that with you. Thanks for being a great kid. We love you!
