Today I had the chance to support my sweet neighbor in her first holy communion today. It was a very special day for her and her family and it was a privilege to be with her as she progressed on her path towards the Savior.

It was also my first time in a Catholic church. I had a very positive experience but admit that I felt disoriented by much of the experience. It reminded me a lot of the first time I attended the LDS temple. The ritual and symbolism were initially hard to interpret.

I am excited to learn more about catholicism this year and hope that, like my experiences in the temple, I can better access the divine as I begin to attach meaning to the many symbols and rituals.
