'Tis the season . . .

From Rochester comes this encouraging RCIA story:

A couple of years back, John Jerabeck set out in earnest on a spiritual quest. Though intrigued by such non-Christian faith traditions as Buddhism, he knew deep down there was more distance to cover on his journey.
"All the time, in the back of my mind, I felt, 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.' I tried to do whatever I could to shut it out, and it just wasn't going away," he recalled.

The call to follow Christ eventually brought Jerabeck to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which people join the Catholic faith. As he prepares to be received as a Catholic during the April 11 Easter Vigil liturgy at Rochester's St. Boniface Church, Jerabeck said that "I just know the Catholic Church is where I'm supposed to be."

Jerabeck, 23, acknowledged that he went through "a very kind of rough teenage years; I got involved in things that really weren't the best for me." However, he has experienced considerable growth since becoming involved in RCIA.

"Honestly, if I had to go through everything again I'd do it all over," Jerabeck said, noting that as the Easter Vigil draws near, "I have a peace in my heart."
