FWIW, only a couple days ago I was toying with the idea of going to Mass for the first time in about a decade just out of curiosity to see if the Holy Spirit finally decided to smite me, but then I got distracted making breakfast and never got back to the thought.

FWIW, I twas smited about ten years ago and three years later found myself that Easter being confirmed in the Church.

My avowed affiliation line runs: Lutheran - Methodist - Baptist - Agnostic - Atheist - Smitten - Buddhist - Catholic.

There is a Compassion that suffuses the cosmos and we can experience this as connected to our being. (The latin "religio" mean "re-bind.") It pursued itself within me all my life. But I don't think that, for everyone, it means "choosing to believe." Some, like me, are hard-headed, and it takes time and much Grace 'til we surrender and come home again for the first time.

Thanks very much for the discussion.
