A few years ago, I ran into a nun whom I hadn't seen in more than 10 years. She immediately asked me if I was still Catholic. It struck me as an odd question for a "how have you been" casual conversation.
I was raised Roman Catholic -- a product of Catholic school education through Grades 1-12, taught by the nuns, Sisters of Mercy. I regret that in the past I never understood their real value. I do now.
