Sure, this might be a bit blasphemous, but after sending in my letter I ended up burning my quadruple combination. That was a lot harder to burn than I expected, but I found it to be a rather cathartic experience.
I sent my letter to the bishop and to the church records office. The bishop replied and we set up an appointment. He finished up my paperwork soon after we met. I won't go into much detail about the whole process just yet, I will leave my full story for another day.
