My Brush With Catholocism: Part IV
So, my nephew Nico is destined to become a Catholic because of his birth to a non-practicing Catholic father and the fact that his father was born in Italy and was touched by the Pope, which makes him ultra Catholic. At worst, he gets an early "get into heaven" card and, just in case our "End of Days" friend decides to pop in early, Nico's covered. Plus, the worst sin he's committed in his two years on Earth is calling his pediatrician a "Chuckwagon." Nico, I'm sure, is in the clear as far as the Hail Marys and rosary beads are concerned. We like to think of it as a little early damnation insurance. Besides, we've been singing "Amazing Grace" to him since birth, so he's had a pretty good infusion of Baptist which should last him until he's at least five.
