    I Love Going To Mass

    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...

    Went to Mass at noon yesterday.

    Missed the Rosary that the faithful prayed before Mass. Blamed on traffic ... LOL. Next time will give myself more time.

    I was born & raised a Catholic,

    as a child i went to mass every week. I read the Bible,i didn't want to as a kid but now i'm glad i did. My children are being raised to be good Catholics. The church & its teachings are very important to me.

    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...

    There are so many different Christian

    Being Catholic is the best of the religions.

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