Maybe At Heart I've Always Been Catholic

In one of my bibles there is a Divine Mercy Prayer Card. I have had it for over 10 years. I bought it on a little market stall not long after I became a Christian.

It has been everywhere with me as I kept that little bible in my hand bag right up until I bought a new “hand bag bible” quite recently, along with 2 new Divine Mercy Prayer Cards to go in it!

I knew as soon as I saw it that this was “My Jesus”! I had no idea what the story behind the Divine Mercy picture was, or what to do with it, but I knew I was looking at Jesus and My Jesus was looking back at me.

Soon after that I also bought a rosary. I had no idea what to do with it and no one to ask, but I would just hold it sometimes while thinking about God, or while I prayed. I loved to hold the crucifix and feel the beads run through my fingers.

I would put them away for a spell and then every now and then I would get them out again.

When I started to investigate the Catholic faith one of the first things I did was to do an internet search on what to do with the beads I had held so often in prayer.

Not only did I find out how to pray the rosary, but all about the Divine Mercy chaplet as well.

Having now learned that Catholics often have "Special Devotion" to certain things I find it funny now to realise that even from my baby Christian days I have always had a Special Devotion to the Rosary, the Divine Mercy and a craving for the Real Presence in the Eucharist. So maybe I've always been a Catholic at heart!
