Peace at Last
I stayed on for the next mass, and this time when people knelt, I knelt too. It felt the most natural thing in the world. I went for communion and received Jesus in me for the first time in twenty five years. And I experienced a feeling of peace in my heart like I had never experienced before. It was like I was one with the world, one with the universe, one with God. The sensation was utterly amazing.
I went back to the priest after the service and this time there weren't any questions about my sincerity. Very graciously, he took me under his wing and over the course of a week he gave me instruction on various aspects of Catholicism, before he finally said I was ready to make my confession.
