I've been trying home study since RCIA doesn't start here until October. It's been hard going with all the misinformation I have in my head - and the material seems endless. For the oldest Christian faction I suppose that makes sense. I can't wait for the classes and someone of whom I can ask questions.

My Mormon 10% got to haunting me so I've been giving to individual programs like my online classes and votives for family who are ill.

My husband's family are Irish Catholics as is my dearest friend; they've been very encouraging.I recently had a discussion with my sister-in-law who is completely against birth control for the usual reasons. I showed her articles on how the vast majority simply prevent the release of the egg and only two that I could find flushed a fertilized one. Even the 'morning after' pill works in this way since sperm can live for several days. There are no guarantees that this pill will work.

I am very much enjoying Pope Francis and his truly Christ-like actions, words and understanding. He is a truly humble man who understands that although the world changes, the Church can show compassion, acceptance of the differences, and above all my mantra, kindness without changing its basic tenets. Priceless.

Holy Week

I am so glad that I go to a church with meaningful liturgical services. Holy week is the best time of the year. I sing in the choir and in the tradition of the ancient Anglican services we have great music. Five services in four days: nothing better!

Saturday I went to a local RC parish here to  the ordination of an Anglican priest to the priesthood in the Roman Church. He had been the Curate in our parish when I returned to real Christianity. He swam the Tiber as we say and went to Rome. The whole parish used to be Anglican but they went to Rome years ago. Our bishop gave them his blessing and let them keep their property when they left. They have used the English Rite for mass. They are now in the Ordainariate of the Chair of St. Peter established several years ago by Benedict XVI. Anyway, having been a married Anglican priest he is now a married RC priest with two very small children. There are a lot of these priests now with more to come as the state of the Episcopal Church continues to deteriorate. They are very intolerant of people with orthodox beliefs. Many feel they have to go to Rome to be able to worship the Lord as he has been revealed in scripture. Thoughts?

Did you all see my message before?  I am not seeing it anywhere.

IMHO, its an individual thing.  I returned to my faith because of the freaking imbalance in the world.  I worked as a hardcore Union organizer in Las Vegas dealing with the things that shook me to the marrow.  I like the consistency of my faith now.  I don't have to stand up on stage and puke back my testiclemony every month now either.  :)   I caqn participate, groew, set goals and use the Saints as exaqmples for growth.  

  I am cool with the Catholic faith.  To each their own.  I am not in the lest cool with the LDS beliefs in ahit so damned weird that you have to warp time, spaqce, logic and time to try to make it fit. ...or the power freaks in salt Lake either.  They cannot slice Spam  by the power of their made up Priesthood.  But I am supposed to jump to attention and sinf We Thank Thee Oh God For a Profit" when the President of the Corporation of the Church of... comes in the room.  

I am happy now.  I am not guilt ridden.  My life is more productive.  The First Presidencies New Theme Song...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5a45f1uy80

After thirty years in "the church" and 13 more as an agnostic, I returned to the faith of my youth. I was raised as a member of the Episcopal Church. It has changed so much that when the Lord called me to return to Him I went to an Anglo-Catholic parish that left the Episcopal Church. Our whole diocese has left because of the Episcopal Church's heretical teachings. Now you may not think of me as Catholic because I am not of the Roman fold, however my beliefs are indeed Catholic. Comments anyone?

Hello all!

 my name is heather. I am a born catholic who coverted to momonism, then left the lds church. I am not shure how i feel about going back to the catholic church. I feel like its about a "Relationship," Not" Religion." But, as my catholic father puts it...

Catholicism is like a all you can eat buffet. You choose what you like and noones gonna kick you out if you want more or less.

 I just call myself a christian girl! always have

But i admit, leaving the lds church has been hard. I dont know what to believe anymore. I love Jesus more then anything. But my faith is rocked because of the gabage that has been fed to me in the lds church.

I know the church is not true because of the facts. But i believed what the missonaries told me because i never known or asked questions of my faith . they made me think differently.

I feel like a shell of a person. im lost.i want to go back to the christian girl i once was.

id like to hear what others  think on this. as a former catholic, i respect the members because they are real people. well..not my mother inlaw! she is a hardcore catholic. but thats another story

 Love through Christ always <3

You just be the best person you can be, use your own educated sense of right and wrong.  You are a good person and can make judgement without Salt Lakes approval.  What happens to the person that relies on others views when they are alone and have to make decisions???  They cave and feel bad.  

When I heard this song the first time I could not help but think of the way the Morons do things.  I got a great laugh at them and actually moved around to the music!  what a great expereince. :) Life is good, and God is greater, very forgiving and lifts us up to do great things with the few short years we have here on this rock :)  Be positive, be up beat, give yourself a break and, when you are at home and not driving have a beer and dance naked in the shower to your fave songs! :)  Live life! :)  ...experience Mass :)

Don,
Thank you for your comments, and point of view. I agree, I felt extremely insignificant at the LDS church, despite being raised in the faith. I felt as though I was there for everyone else, but me. At St. Vincent's, I feel like I'm there for ME, and my God. I come away feeling the warmth in my heart, and a closeness with God, without jumping through the social hoops, and feeling as though I have to perform in order to "fit in"...
So refreshing, and so nice to hve TIME for my family, the way God intended
Yours In Christ,
Jenny

Hi jenny,

  I understand your views on "hurry", and the way that the LDS use it to get you in real quick.  When I was a missionary we baptised people on the first discussion abd did it with no concern for the person.  We wanted the numbers for our reports, to look good and nothing more.

  Theology is about more than "speed", hurry up and get along.  It is supposed to benefit you.  Ever noticed how unimportant you are in the herd mentality of the LDS?  It is all about "them" and nothing about "you".  ...very self serving IMHO.

The Catholic faith trains people for life, for real instances where decision making skills are needed, where chacter, values and ethics are needed.  It is not about get them in the water quick for the production numbers only.  People need to understand what is taught in Mass, what it is, and why it is done.  Mormons simply do not understand any other faith system past the things they can contort and teach to others that serve the Mormon end.  ...literally.  

Classes, education, learning to think and how to think are so very important. People need to understand what is going on and have a feeling for it. People can drop out with no problem and everyone is friends.  

  Butclasses are an important fulcrum point of education and understanding their new faith. :)

Siempre Catholic! :)

Don, Vegas
