Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you. If you do decide to lie to your parents to get back into their good graces, I'd be happy to pretend to be a Christian pen pal for you and send you letters and Catholic books and stuff. I probably have stuff lying around from my Catholic childhood that I could get rid of, to good effect. :) They'll probably open your mail, and they could end up pretty impressed. Just an idea.
