I have been blogging for a while but my blog was dropped by my previous blog host. I changed the title. I used to be called Purify Your Bride. That was a reference to the church as the bride of Christ. The phrase was used in a song that I learned as an evangelical Christian. It resonated with me as I became Catholic. The question of what was the church and what did it look like was central to my conversion. I was meditating on that phrase quite a bit when I needed to pick a name over on the old Catholic Exchange forum. So I picked that name and kept is when I created a blog. But that phrase does not resonate with me as much anymore. I now believe the church is pure in the most important ways. It has been preserved from impurity and does not need to be fixed. So the name does not really fit anymore.
