Hi. I'm coming back to the Church after quite a few years away. I feel rather ridiculous saying this, but honestly I wonder if I'd have found my way back had it not been for the wall-to-wall coverage of the Papal election. That started me on the path to reading about the Church again, to eventually attending Mass, to eventually taking Communion, and now praying the Rosary every day. So I suppose the media isn't all bad! :D

I just found this forum and it's already been so helpful to me.

Thanks!

Hi, we already met in another thread, but I just wanted to chime in with my welcome again. I imagine there are lots of others like you who have been led back to the Church (or who have been led to learn more about the Church) because of the death of Pope John Paul and the election of Pope Bendict VI. The news coverage was wonderful for that reason. So glad you're here.

Welcome, friend! Sometimes, the media does (accidentally) help!

Welcome, your story in ways is similar to mine in that during the time I fell away from Mass, I always stopped and listened to the tv or whatever when the Pope(JPII)was speaking and it got to me each time. Nope, the media isn't always bad is right and God uses many different ways to call us back. Enjoy your stay!

Welcome! :) Daily Rosaries work wonders, so it's great to hear of your use of this devotion.

Welcome to the board. I was away from the Church for 20 years, so I know how you feel.
