People Will Come Around in Their Own Time

            "The thing about baptism is, you have to be ready to receive it" (157).

 

            This is so true for both the religious and the literature worlds.  If one is forced into a religion prematurely, the Catholic faith particularly, the whole process will be meaningless.  The stage of baptism and being immersed will hold as much meaning as dunking the head under water for the purpose of rinsing shampoo.  Faith is very personal and must be found when the time is right for the individual.  Characters go through changes, which many times lead to some sort of growth or renewal period and often then lead to a "rebirth".  This too is quite personal.  Even in real life people change in their own time.  If not, the change is usually not permanent.
