Nicole Kidman is more Catholic than I thought.

Preparation for actress Nicole Kidman and country singer Keith Urban’s anticipated June 25 wedding has helped guide her back to the Catholic Church, said a priest who knows her . . .

Born in Hawaii to Australian parents, Kidman grew up Catholic in Australia and was taught by the Sisters of Mercy . . .

Unlike [Tom] Cruise, who renounced his own Catholicism, Kidman’s attraction to Scientology seems never to have undermined her core beliefs, though she spiritually wandered, describing herself by 1999 as “a mishmash of religions… a little Buddhism, a little Scientology,” and finally conceding, “I was raised Catholic and a big part of me is still a Catholic girl” . . .

“Catholicism guides me. I certainly have a strong belief. I try to go to church regularly, and I try to go to confession,” she told the Philippine Daily Enquirer.

Regular confession and church attendance is more than I can say for many Catholics. Perhaps she is recovering from the Cruise factor after all.
