Given the many things I was worried about as I considered joining the Catholic church, isolation never really came up. I had no idea how alone this was going to feel. I never realized how hard it was going to be to always be going to Mass alone. How it was going to be to essentially be in the closet with my faith at work. In a weird way, my experience mirrors that of my Christian business leader colleagues who struggle with sharing their faith at work. In my case, I am blessed to have a staff I can be honest with and pray with, but otherwise my faith is mostly unspoken, hidden. It is heavy.
