121. I have had episodes...
...for times in my life I've been quite pious.

I was a good little kid but religion (RC in my case) wasn't a big factor in our family life, so we drifted away.

Then, as a young collegian, I craved my Mother Church's presence and came, of my own voliiton, to confirmation. Still one of the proudest things I ever done. Then fell away as I got disillusioned with JP2's stance toward woment, gays, and liberation theology.

Then, recently I came back...but then, Pope Cliffy (Benedict XVI) and the apparent undoing of Second Vatican and the safe haven for scary groups like Opus Dei, which should not be, period.

This time, I don't feel like I've moved out on Mother Church, I feel like Mother Church has moved out on me. I don't miss what she's become. Maybe, someday, she'll start to miss me, and come back. But I'm not holding my breath.
