    Catholic Convert

    After being raised as a Baptist and having a falling out with the Church I was going to, I turned away from religion although not from God, I would constantly pray that God would show me how to follow him, where to find him, what the truth was.  Then one day I went and...

    This Is My Faith

    Yes, I have been away from my faith for quite some time, but I still hold onto it in my heart. It is difficult to maintain strength in my soul, with all the things I have going on now, but regardless, this faith in Catholicism has always been a part of me, even when I did not...

    The Irish Prostitute

    An Irish daughter had not been home for over a year. Upon her return, her Father cussed her. 'Where have ye been all this time? Why did ye not write to us, not even a line? Why didn't ye call? Can ye not understand what ye put yer old Mother thru?' The girl, crying, replied...

    I love the saint, St.

    Benedict, he was an honorable and humble man who was a great force against evil in his life. I now carry a Saint Benedict medal with me almost all the time. It is a great source of protection and comfort to me. I love to give these medals away to people to help aid them in their...

    thinking about how everything we do

    -everything- matters. we need to be conscious and awake, not in a daze, not making half baked decisions and actions. in the first sorrowful mystery, Jesus is confronted with the total sins of humanity. he has to face, to carry to endure each of those actions in His Passion. the...

    Being Catholic is the best of the religions.

    Because we have the most rules, it gives us more of them to break.

    I feel like such a piece of **** Catholic.

    I just got baptized last Easter and was going great in my new faith and then I started dating this guy a few weeks ago. He's not a Catholic or even any kind of Christian at all but he's super handsome and nice and I guess I got all romantic about it. Well, last weekend he and I...

    I'm 14 and have been raised catholic.

    Did anyone else, when they were my age, question their faith? Like if you really believed EVERYTHING the Catholic Church believes?

    I'm so relieved from the talk with my pastor!

    ! After telling him I don't know if I qualify for reconciliation because ive fallen away so badly and wasn't even sure I believed. He reassured me so I was ready to confess...I told him the heaviest things on my heart and how I had tried to avoid them but was too confident in my...

    I spent a beautiful three days in Anaheim,

    CA (near Disneyland) at a Catholic Charismatic convention. It was beautiful. Besides the wonderful talks, we had wonderful Masses, along with a wonderful healing service. It was great.

    I believe that the Christian/ Catholic faith

    should be more than going to church and partaking in the sacraments. All of these are very important, but the most important thing is to have a personal connection with Jesus Christ. Because if you really seek Him with all your heart, you will find Him. I believe it is essential...

    I am a proud Catholic. My faith has helped me see the light during the darkest times in my life. It is a continued spiritual journey that I am taking alone. My family are fallen Catholics and I put myself through RCIA back in 2007. It feels good to be back home. I've always known...

    a lot of people in the U.S are hedonists. they justify their arguments with "if it makes so and so happy." and they don't think beyond that. everyone wants mani-pedis, fashionable wardrobes, to eat out at the best restaurants and so on. i don't mean to say that treating yourself...
