RCIA Journey Reflection – Morteza Babaei

Morteza Babaei, along with Anna Vo, Alize Zhang, Nancy Chohan and Ronald Main, completed their RCIA Journey finally on Sun 06 Dec after delays brought about by Covid.  Morteza writes:

This journey towards Catholicism has been full of waiting. Impacted by the threats and restrictions of COVID-19, I felt tested during those long months. However, through His love, and the gentle reminders of our RCIA team, I have learnt the value of being kind to one another, to have concern for my fellow neighbour and most importantly, to be patient, humble, and have faith.
During the months and weeks leading up to my Confirmation, God never left my side. I’ve had my Visa approved, my partner and I got engaged, and my sister received her heart transplant that she needed urgently and woke up within record time. Directly after that, Victoria received the news that we were free of Covid and would have our restrictions eased.

God is with me. God is with US.

I didn’t expect much going into RCIA as I came to St James Parish as a Muslim turned Christian Protestant, having sat through hours of bible study already. However, RCIA and our Parish have helped me too much in my life. My faith is stronger. I have a deeper understanding of God’s love, as well as a deeper and closer relationship with God than I ever have before.
I am happy, and I am in the right place to Adore and Worship.

I am grateful to each and every person that makes up RCIA, Fr Jude, Fr Silvio, the Parish team, our wider community, and our sponsors, especially my sponsor, Johnny Lapiña, and fiancée, Jessica Lapiña. On behalf of my fellow Catechumens and Candidates (Anna Vo, Alice Zhang, Nancy Chohan and Ronald Main), and myself, thank you everyone, for being kind, patient, and for always allowing us to feel welcome and at home in our Christian community at St James Parish. God Bless and Merry Christmas.
