Becoming a Catechumen

In half an hour I will celebrate the Rite of Admission to the Catechumenate at my church. I've experienced a number of signs that point in this direction and I want to pay attention to them and see where this road leads.

Earlier this year I wrote ccc, a command line tool to read the Catechism directly from vatican.va, it uses a local html cache I wrote so it's very fast after the first time you run it.

I personally believe that computing is one of the new ways we can come to know God, writing a program is creating a little world with your words and expressions. Speaking a world into existence, a mini-genesis.

I am nervous but also excited. I spent a lot of my adolescence as an atheist and materialist, so this has been a big mental shift over the last year.
