“I went to live in Spain for the college “Junior Year Study Abroad”
program. I was raised Protestant (though 3 of my 4 grandparents were
Catholic), but I did not like religion much, and really didn’t care one
way or the other about Catholicism — about which I knew nothing. I
visited Rome during my Christmas break, and became completely mesmerized
by the beautiful nuns in full black habits who seemed like angels to
me. I was at the point of making a very big decision in my life. I was
deciding, at the age of 21, that I did not need God. I never had felt
any closeness to Him, and I believed it was time for me to decide
whether or not I wanted God in my life. I decided, “no I did not.” Still
I loved the nuns.
