10months RCIA journey passes just like that. Finally I am offically a Catholic. I was baptized on Easter Vigil 2013. The mass began at 10.30pm lasted for 2.5hours. We stayed home whole afternoon to ensure MNJ gets adequate nap for the long night. (I didn’t want any of them missing out the moment). It begins with The Service of Light. Church lights will all be switched off, and a fireplace is prepared to light the Paschal Candle.
2nd part was Liturgy of words which consists of 5 readings from old testament plus Gospel from Luke. That explains partially of why the long service. My poor N was then screaming lung out in car without my knowledge.
3rd part was the Baptism of the catechumens. The moment that all 7 of us been waiting for.
We are officially a Catholic family, and I pray that God will always be the centre of our life, Jesus be our light, Lead our way.
