3 thoughts on “How Do You Feel About Being Catholic? Take This Poll!

  1. I’m proud and happy to be Catholic but the reason I say it is personal and nobody’s business is because it is no one’s business to convert me. I am happy to remain Catholic and I do not want to waste time with “others” who challenge me on “why Saints” and “why Mary”. It is so annoying.

  2. I feel very blessed to be a Catholic! I am proud to defend my faith and the church. Catholicism is like a chest full of treasures for the soul. There are so many awesome books and writings from saints, popes, clergy and lay people. Many Catholics just seem to have no idea what they are missing. I was raised a Catholic and grew up during the 60’s and 70’s. Sadly, I was not really taught the Catechism and fell away from the church as a young adult. During a very bad time in my life, I received a holy card in the mail with a picture of the Blessed Mother that included a caption that read “will you help me?” Mary was asking for my help in soothing the anger of Jesus by praying the Rosary daily in reparation for the offenses committed against his most Sacred Heart and for the offenses against the Immaculate heart of Mary…… in order to postpone his judgement of the world and for poor sinners. Something about the picture and the Blessed Mother’s plea touched my heart and so I purchased a Rosary and began to pray on my knees before the Crucifix. Never having prayed the Rosary before, it was difficult at first with all types of horrendous thoughts and distractions. I figured the Devil must be pretty upset and was trying to interfere. I just stuck with it and bought books about the Rosary and about Mary. I think it’s safe to say that the Rosary saved my life and lead to a years long thirst for knowledge. I must have read at least a hundred books and my journey back to the Church was AWESOME! Don’t miss out! If you are a fallen away or luke warm Catholic try praying about it and attend Mass. I would highly recommend a book titled “The Incredible Catholic Mass” by Father Martin Von Cochem from TAN publishers. Of course you should read “The Catechism of the Catholic Church” along with a Catholic Bible. I would recommend the original “Jerusalem Bible” or the “New American Bible”. Open your heart and your mind and accept the challenges and rewards of being a true Catholic! You won’t be sorry! Thanks for reading my story and sorry to go on and on (I could go much longer) but you asked! LOL

  3. Wow! Amen Kevin! What an inspirational testament to your Catholic Faith. Thank you for the book recommendations as well. How wonderful to know that the Rosary made such a difference in your road back. Blessings!
