Describe a memory or encounter in which you considered your faith, religion, spirituality — or lack of — for the first time.

I went to Catholic school for a long time; from kindergarten through to graduating from high school. I remember loving the stories that our kind priest used to tell us and I loved listening to my first grade teacher, Sister Amelia, sing the most beautiful hymns, her voice was the voice of an angel and I felt closer to God. I remember loving the whole entire ceremony of mass, the rituals and reverence. I remember feeling so small, so infinitesimal in the middle of God’s universe. I never questioned God or Catholicism, not then at least, my questions and doubt came later, in high school.
