Thank you for your question!
The answer is easy for me. I feel closer to Christ now and that is because of one profound difference between the Catholic Church and the Protestant church: The true presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
While my prayer life, bible study habits, or desire to serve hasn’t changed much since my conversion, I feel so profoundly closer to Christ because I have the opportunity to meet with Christ physically everyday. Through the consecration of the Priest, God is physically abiding with me at each Mass and He is physically in the monstrance each time I go to Adoration, ready to listen to me.
I feel closer to Christ, because I am! Physically! And it’s honestly the best thing in the world.
“It became obvious why Catholics had built such beautiful cathedrals and churches throughout the world. Not as gathering or meeting places for Christians. But as a home for Jesus Himself in the Blessed Sacrament. Cathedrals house Jesus. Christians merely come and visit Him. The cathedrals and churches architecturally prepare our souls for the beauty of the Eucharist.”

" Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God; you will conceive and give birth to a Son, alleluia.
All powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at his coming and call us to his side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.”
