While in Rome, I got to know quite a few wonderful people. One of which is Shannon Berry, she and her boyfriend moved to Rome when I did in fall of 2005 - BK goes to the Angelicum, where I was, while Shannon teaches English. I even roomed with Shannon for a time, towards the end of my year in Rome, when I was in need of somewhere to stay for a week (the fact that she, at the time, roomed with four other Italian 20-somethings made it all the more interesting...).
I've just discovered that Shannon has a very beautiful essay up on the latest "Dapple Things" online journal for young adults, in which she recounts in a simple, yet dramatic fashion, her reversion back to the Catholic faith and reception of Confirmation as an adult.
Shannon is a great person, a good friend, and I highly recommend you read her account - click here for it
