...since I opened up my heart and became a practicing Catholic and/or became a Christian. I don't know for sure whether it has been Catholicism or Christianity which has been responsible for the change, but it doesn't matter. Jesus is responsible for the change. Pope Francis inspires me to open up my heart to the divine love which is at the heart of both Catholicism and Christianity.

That's beautiful, DD. So glad for you, and I expect (not that it matters) it isn't an either/or. It's a both/and. You're on your path -- the one who seeks Him finds Him. :pray:

Indeed, the Lord Jesus, when He prayed to the Father, "that all may be one. . . as we are one" (John 17:21-22) opened up vistas closed to human reason, for He implied a certain likeness between the union of the divine Persons, and the unity of God's sons in truth and charity. This likeness reveals that man, who is the only creature on earth which God willed for itself, cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself. ~ Pope Paul VI, Gaudium et Spes 24.3

I'm a big fan of the Holy Spirit and I see it* at work all round. In your case as well, I warrant.

*You could look up discussions on the gender of the Holy Spirit, but I'd advise against it. I choose the neutral grammatical construction.

Catholics say "Him." We don't apologize for it.

That was my impulse. Then I researched it. I wish I hadn't.
