I have an embarrassing confession to make. Before I entered consecrated life, I was a non-practicing Catholic who does not know well about our Church and her catechism. It is a long story to tell. To put it simply, I was not well catechized. And now that I am a Marist Brother, I need to start from the basics like sacraments, liturgy, and the scriptures.
It is not that I do not know the rites; I just do not understand a lot of things on how or why we do them.
It is not that I do not know the gospel; I just realized that there is a lot of things that I need to know about the scriptures.
I need to know.
I need to understand.
These are just the steps I have to take to go to the mountain of the Lord.
Marami pa talaga akong kakaining bigas.
(It will be a long journey.)
