After leaving the monastery where I had spent 28 years of my life I found myself adrift in where I fit in with my Catholic faith. In the beginning I kept up much of the daily routine I was used to such as daily Mass, praying the Divine Office, rosary, etc.
But over time I found I wanted a less structured life. I wanted to just be. I wanted freedom of thought, will and life. For 28 years everything was blocked out, scheduled, programmed for much of my day and it was just all too, too much! At the same time I wanted to stay Catholic or at least I thought I did. I found Michael Leach’s book, Why Stay Catholic and it was written with so much beauty and common sense with soaring flights of Spirit and freedom that I found myself saying, “Yes!” over and over. It was Catholic but not step in line rigidity.
I decided to create a page of Pinterest Pins with quotes from Mike’s book. Perhaps you will find treasures here as I do.
