    It's so easy to fall into the trap of arguing

    with people about your belief. They don't understand and don't want to understand. I wish they would stay off the Roman Catholic boards unless they have a sincere question rather than knocking the One Holy Catholic (universal) and Apostolic faith which Jesus created 2000 years...

    Becoming Catholic

    I will begin my RCIA class at my church this week. I can't wait. I grew up in a Catholic home but my parents did not baptize me in any faith. So now at 20 I have found my path and can't wait to embark on my journey.

    And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us: and we saw his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.  (John 1:14) Is it not blasphemous to call Mary, the "Mother of God"?  Can a human being be the mother of almighty God?  To be so...

    for the gift of life. Any self harm is sinful to God. Suicide is an ultimate rejection of his gift and of Gods love. That is sin. I pray all who commit this act repent in their final moment. Thankfully from what I've heard this is very likely :) Calling something a sin isnt...
