To miss certain things from before I was born again. Like Ash Wednesday is next week begining the season of Lent and I remember having a ceremony commemorating Jesus' passion for our repentance by having ash in the sign of the cross placed on our heads. It seems now a good talking point for sharing the gospel. But I'm no longer Catholic. One thing is I seem to miss how close I was to the liturgical year. I think now I can even enjoy fasting during lent. Advent Calanders were great! The Jesse Tree ornaments, and a multitude of days of reflection; But since I left the Catholic Church and now have been a baptist for awhile, the liturgical year was never important in any of the churches I've been to. There is no historical wealth that I used to associate with. We don't have communion save once in a quarter. Nor do things seem as grand. Yet, on the other hand when I was a Catholic, I never really appreciated these things either and never really followed through with fasting and prayer. I pretty much was a pagan shrouded in Catholicism. Having left the Catholic Church I've developed a real prayer life, understanding of scriptures, and certain aspects of Theological development, and now these things, I use to take for granted, begin to have an appeal. Is it wrong for me to miss these things? I don't want to return to Law like belief-ism but I feel I had a rich Christian background because of Catholicism especially now that I've been studying Church history.
