I pulled my bike out of a snow bank today. Dug it out is more like it. I got really wet. But I rode it to St. Mary’s to go to Confession. I had planned on going for discipleship today, but plans changed, so I went alone and it was (relatively speaking) quite warm today. I discovered, though, that my brakes do not work, that my chain is so very rusty, and that none of my gear shifts work. So I’m starting to question whether or not this bike, which I have had for 10 years is going to get me from Fargo to Hillsboro seven weeks from now. I think I need a new bike, and I might spend the money I make over break for it. The good thing about it is that if I do, we’ll have a bike for our annual Tradition Day sacrifice!!!

So I talked to this girl I went on summer project with this afternoon. After about 20 minutes, she told me that she had noticed I had become Catholic and was curious as to why I did it and if I was happy. The first thing I did was smile and blurt out that I was happier now than I ever had been. I guess I didn’t really realize just how happy I have been about being Baptized and how deep my faith in Christ has become. And then I got to tell her the amazing story about how I came to that decision, from the horrible attitude I had about Catholics before to the amazing change that came over me. I couldn’t believe how excited I was to be sharing this story and how willing she was to hear it without immediately condemning me, unlike some of my friends have been. The greatest thing, though, was that she told me she wanted to learn more about the Catholic faith and was glad that she now knew a Catholic she could go to to ask questions.
On top of getting my job, this has been a really good day.
P.S. I also found a scraper bike for tradition day for Andy, Megan, Nate, and me!!!
