A blast from my saved drafts - can't recall why I didn't post this:
I confess… that I “got” Catholicism better at age 6 than at age 26, and I “get” it better now at 47. Finally. It is a religion for the very young and the finally grown up. Little kids “get” mysticism and wonder. When you grow up, you seek it out. It is only when you are an adolescent, or a young adult that you are convinced that YOU are the wonder, and then you miss it.
