Thank you Tribal Princess. My parents were not churchgoers as I got older, and I too fell from going to my Lutheran church as a result. As I got even older and met my then boyfriend - now husband (who was a daily mass Catholic), I joined him at his church for daily mass and was awestruck at how many people day in and day out attended. I figured these folks could be doing a thousand other things but they chose to join one another in the Breaking of the Bread (partaking of the True Body of Christ
through the Eucharist) and I was eventually taken in by the same Jesus that brought them there day after day, and as a result have been going to daily mass together with my husband since the day we wed (that's when I became an "official" Catholic) 25 years ago.

Wow, what a beautiful story!
I can't help but believe that when marriages are Christ centered, they are stronger for it.
Thank you for sharing!

What an inspiring reply. There is something about that site that seems to call me.
I will continue to read the pdf I downloaded and ewtn.com I put in my bookmark bar. Thanks again.
