Are you a cradle catholic, convert, or revert?


#121

Cradle Catholic, always been practising by the grace of God.


#122

Came back several years ago, but may leave again…still too angry at God for a host of reasons…


#123

By allowing yourself to remain angry, you are listening to Satan not Jesus. Jesus says to forgive seven times seventy. That is, without ceasing.


#124

Have you pondered with the Western Rite Orthodox or Roman Catholic Ordinariates?


#125

Have pondered, am currently pondering. I still have a bunch of reading and discussing to do on a number of contested issues before making that decision, plus considerations for maintaining domestic tranquility with my wife, who grew up Presbyterian and is no great fan of Catholicism.


#126

I’m presently mired in a similar matter; engaging in a number of discussions about a few lingering (re: troubling) queries pertaining to authority and doctrinal development East v. West.

And yes, you cannot underestimate domestic tranquility!


#127

I’m a cradle catholic, although with different forms of observance through different stages of my life.


#128

I disagree.


#130

A convert, joining the church this year.


#131

Both :joy: for me at least.

I was Baptised as an infant at around three weeks old, I spent twenty + years searching for the faith I never lost, perhaps just denied and ignored it, while I ran after questionable beliefs and dibeliefs thinking I was a “Spiritual but not religious” individual new age quais eastern philosophical leaning something or other.

As my mum reminded me when I was feeling offended by the comments of a former freind, that Implied that I was chasing a new “flash in the pan” whim of being a Christian, I was a Catholic before anything and I am
owed so grateful and fortunate to have been made so at her decision.
Way to go mum! slightly_smiling_face:

Praise be to Jesus and Mary forever.


#132

#133
