This makes me think...

Looking upon Mary, who is completely holy and already glorified in body and soul, the Church contemplates in her what she herself is called to be on earth and what she will be in the homeland of heaven.

---Answer to Question 199.
Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church


  1. Pat, I'm going into RCIA in the fall and attend mass if I can at a Basilica nearby. I enjoy it very much and feel that I've come home. If the RCIA didn't require so much of my time right now I would reorganize my present priorities. A priest gave me the 1997 Catholic Cathechism, and I love the last part on prayer especially. I've had a couple of articles published in the Western Catholic Reporter. I have a feeling this would make an old acquaintance of mine years ago quite happy. I journeyed along many a wrong path for many a year. Thank you for this website.

  2. Kenna,

    RCIA is a big step, and a good one! Blessings on your journey!
