As I continued to stand very near to Sandra, with my heart beating madly, I realized that my rushing blood was not because of the exercise. Sandra’s body almost touching mine was causing a burning emotion that left me lightheaded. Until I moved from Detroit, I’d never had any doubt of my love for God. Nor any temptation toward seeking the physical pleasures of a woman. But, since arriving at this diocese, it’s become easier and easier to contemplate loving a woman like Sandra. I‘ve been saddened by this withering away of my love for God and my doubting His existence. At times, though, this sadness had been replaced by daydreams of Sandra. Or a woman like Sandra. But as I stood so near her with our hands on each other’s arms, my heart leapt, realizing my fanciful feelings toward her had somehow been reciprocated. For the first time in my life, my lips touched a woman’s, in a light caress.
