Here’s the thing about that; the early imprints on our minds really never go away. It’s like a palimpsest. Parchment and other materials for writing or engraving upon were expensive to produce in the Middle Ages and, in the interest of economy, were re-used wherever possible. Over time the images that had been scraped off began to reemerge. This is great news for those who study ancient manuscripts; they get to see both the old images and the new ones on those old parchments. But it also is true of the human brain; the earliest imprints can be covered over by learning new information, gaining new experiences, but in later years, those early impressions seem to kick back in, like a palimpsest.
This would explain why a Baptist who grew up as a Catholic might want to receive Last Rites, see a priest or receive Eucharist. As the saying goes, “Old habits die hard.” It may be that our oldest habits don’t really die. Let’s just say, try your best.
Know you are blessed,
