I Used to Pray a Lot

I used to pray every day. I used to read the Bible every day.

When I converted to Catholicism in college, I used to go to mass every day.

Religion was a big part of my life.

Even now I sometimes find myself saying the Act of Contrition at random times. Like when I'm lying in bed. Or doing the dishes. Or stealing things from a neighbor's house.

That's right, without daily prayer I've turned into a thief.

I'm a real reprobate now, though I prefer the term "Cat Burglar."

I'm working up to "Gentleman Burglar" but I need a better collection of neck scarves.

They're on my list of things to steal.
