  • Believer or Not: Reflections of a lapsed Catholic

    Jun 07, 2024

    I was born into a staunch Catholic family and grew up on a weekly ‘religious’ routine that was about as predictable as Lot’s wife looking back at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Nightly prayers before bed, obligatory family prayers in front of the altar every Friday, catechism classes followed by Mass in Tamil on Sunday. I went through all the motions and even made it to Confirmation.
