Just had the oddest memory climb back to my consciousness. :)

Years ago my family was friends with a family of four girls, also former Catholics, also in this fervent charismatic faith walk. I remember them being somewhere in the "Valley".. Ventura, CA maybe?

Anyway, the sticky part that triggered the memory is... their mom had named each and everyone of them "Mary." IIRC, Mary Jane, Mary Jo, Mary Beth and Mary Rett.

So, netiverse, in this age of Social Networking and wild reconnections, if this reaches one of the "Mary Girls", get back to me. :-)
