The news in the staff room today revolved around the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.  I was shocked at the announcement - I mean I thought Pope's were supposed to sign on to the whole "till death do we part" thing - only TO GOD not to some dude you will most likely divorce in less than 5 years.  But the big surprise came when a fellow teacher asked me if I was Catholic.  And I responded "yes". 

Now, this is new to me.  Whenever I have been asked this question on the past, I have answered "I used to be" or "that's what I was raised".  What on earth brought me to say "Yes" - yes, I am Catholic.  Yes, I am part of that church.  Yes, I have left my Pagan roots behind?

No.  No, I can't do that.  Granted, it has been a long time since I have practiced.  I have lovingly cultivated my herb collection and maintained my crystals, but I haven't actually DONE anything in a long time.  I have always chalked this up to having moved into a new house, had a child, gone back to work and having no time - but those are just excuses and I am letting them go.

It is time to get back to my faith, it is time to get back to who I am and to who I want to be. 

It is time for magick.
