Mary On A Half Shell
My name is Ren, I am 18 years old and a former Catholic.
It may come as a surprise to some, and not so much to others, but the Virgin Mary, actually led me into Paganism and Goddess worship.
As a young girl and devout Catholic, I adored her. She was serenity and strength. However I found her immense contribution to Christianity and religion vastly under rated. When I was upset, I prayed to Mary, and I prayed to Jesus. Mary always seemed to be there more in my mind.
Due to long and complex events leading to my leaving the Church, I bumped around the Religious world, and found the Goddess. Maiden, Mother, Crone.
The Virgin Mary was 2 out of the 3! I found my nitch in the world. I have been thriving on the Goddess Path for almost 6 years, but I have not forgotten Mary. On my Alter I have a statue of the Virgin. I also have a love of Art featuring Mary.
My favorite T-Shirt says "Mary is my Home girl"
I also love the Saints, but that is a different story.
