Back in June, I wrote about Leah Libresco's decision to become Catholic:
I'm no scholar or intellectual but I do think I have the ability to recognize good and distinguish it from evil, recognize right and differentiate it from wrong and yes, grasp that my faith is made up of part mystery and part reason and though there is much I'll likely never know about Catholicism there is much I am finding out that simply is good and right.
Learn from Leah's experience. Learn from the many others who led Leah to this decision. Learn but don't just rest on that learning.
Leah has done so and though the road ahead is windy and uphill, the destination is heavenly.
You're just going to have to trust Scripture, trust Reason and trust Tradition and start trekking down that road, either anew or again and find out.
You'll not regret it.
It'd be great I think to read the whole post and particularly that which was linked to.
Then know that this weekend, Leah will be baptized, confirmed and will receive her first communion. She ends her post with this offer:
I know a number of you have offered your prayers for me, so I’d like to invite you to post any prayer requests for you, your family, and friends in the comments of this post and to pick one other person’s intentions to pray for sometime before now and Sunday, if you’re the praying type.
I know some of you are indeed praying types so take up her offer and submit your prayer requests.
I did... and hoping others will join me in that prayer.
I am more and more convinced that the change the culture needs is change that can only be accomplished by walking the path Leah has chosen to walk.
May God grace her this weekend and beyond and might He continue to draw others down that same path, particularly those I've been lifting up for some time now.
