I went to a catholic in my city that someone in a Catholic church I went to mentioned, whom I was told knows a lot about the Catholic faith and who can help me in my conversion.
I was grieved though because in his bookcase I saw a statue of a Hindu god/ess called Shiva, I think. With multiple arms. I recently studied Hinduism in high school, so I knew it looked like a hindu god/ess. Similar to this I think:
He also told me he came to the Catholic faith through a Catholic priest who had a course about Buddhist Zen meditation but with Catholic content. This priest is a prominent author in my country and many catholics here seem to like him. He was a monk I think. He passed away recently.
Should I rebuke him for this idol statue? I don’t know his motives for having it.
Should I keep having contact with him? Especially if I’d rebuke him and he justifies the statue?
