Sunday Poser #62

Today’s question:

Have you ever been hurt by your expectations?’

In my youth I lived two houses over from a Catholic

Church.

Early in a brand new school year I went with friends

to sign up for CCD class (Catechism).

To register a parent had to fill out the required form.

My Mother simply told me I couldn’t attend without

sharing a reason then placed the paperwork in the

trash.

Determined to learn about religion each Sunday I

attended Mass.

At first it was scary since I had no idea what to expect.

I watched other parishioners and since not an official

member knew better than proceed to the Altar for

Communion.

When I turned eighteen, I registered for adult religious

classes.

It wasn’t until my father passed away that I learned the

reason Church was off limits.

I had a half-brother. This was my dad’s second marriage.

Back in the 50s and 60s people rarely spoke about marital

indiscretions.

Above is one of numerous incidents throughout life that

created extreme distrust in humans.
