    A Practicing Catholic.....

     I've been brought up a catholic but find that it's kinda hard to keep faith when society stigmatises you for being a prostitute; I get abuse from others, tollerated by the priest for my lifestyle choice and all I just wanna do is pray to my god. Is there anything wrong with...

    I was raised in a Catholic family

    as were my siblings. We are traditional Catholics and oppose Obama on birth control measures. We do not practice safe sex at all but unprotected sex. We have huge families here because of that. It is a blessing to be pregnant and have lots of kids for the Lord. We can...

    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 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...
