This star marks the spot where Our Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true Man,
was born in Bethlehem.
As it happens it is also the first Catholic Church I was ever in.
The starting point of my journey was there.
I had been baptized as a baby in the Lutheran church, but I had never engaged with it.
Not long afterwards the visit to the Church of The Nativity in Bethlehem I was
received into the Catholic Church; the most important decision I have taken in my life.
It is a journey; learning, implementing and deepening the precepts of the Church.
How much did I really understand of the Sacraments and the teaching in the beginning?
I don't know, but I know that I understood enough to know that it was correct, not always
easy, for sure, but the only Way.
