Re: How do you know if Catholicism is for you? And how do you face rejection?
Hi all, hope everyone is doing fine.
I just started my RCIA this week, and what cn i say? I'm truly on my way to Catholicism.
Since i've been on job search, i've stated 'Catholic' as my religion and raised a few eyebrow as it does not match the race column, which is pre-dominantly Islam. But thankfully, most prospective employer are quite open about it.
This past week have been quite a challenge as i can't seem to secure a job as soon as i had thought. It's daunting to keep going for interviews and nt getting offers of employment.
I had an interview on Mon and Tue, but was told that they will call me if i'm selected. And i started my RCIA on Wed.
The session was great, in my opinion, as the sponsors who were running the program showed real conviction in their faith and made me feel truly enlightened. And the way the RCIA is ran, makes me feel that i'm in good hands in my journey towards Catholicism.
I'm looking forward to the future optimistically.
And i don't know if its just a coincidence, but i've got calls to return again for another interview by the 2 prospective employers and highly likely, with an offer of employment. Will pray for guidance as i'm undecided on which offer shud i take.
Everything is going on fine except on the family front. Relationship with my mum have never been better, and i just can't bring myself to bring up the issue of my conversion. And i know the other family member will bring up the issue of fillial piety to make me change my mind.
I guess i'll put it aside until i'm accepted by the Church and cross the bridge when i come to it.
For now, i guess that's all. But hope to hear any advice that anyone might offer.
