mmm....
Yesterday I celebrated the first anniversary of my Catholicism. Woo. Only a year in and I'm already a really bad Catholic. How about that, folks? Must be a record.

Still....as fucked-up as the Catholic church is, particularly here in Australia in the past year with the furore surrounding Archbishop Pell 'n all, and as much as I despise the Vatican hierarchy who refuse to change with the times....it's something that I'm proud to be, in a weird sort of way.

Probably wouldn't have mattered which of the many Christian denominations I joined....I suppose it's the faith that's the important thing.

I think Salma Hayek said it best in Dogma.

"...it's not about who's right or wrong- no denomination's nailed it yet. It doesn't matter what you have faith in- just that you have faith."

Amen.

Faith, baby. ROCK.

*holds up a fist* WOO, go faith. :)

Seriously, I agree. You need something to hold on to, you really really do. It's just a case of finding what suits you. :D
