This may sound strange but I feel that Catholicism is just making me want to be a better person!
I am not Catholic yet. I’m currently in RCIA and in the annulment process for a previous marriage. However, I just feel that I’m learning so much, growing spiritually and so full of love for God, Jesus, Mary and my fellow man.
I just want to be kinder, more loving, more helpful, more giving, etc. I am making a conscious effort to be all of these things from a true desire to just enrich the lives of others. I’ve always cared about others but probably did not put it into practical action. Now I’m making a point to do all of these things.
I’m spending more time in prayer also. I feel so close to God, Jesus, Mary.
It just seems that Catholicism emphasizes these things and makes me want to strive to do/be them. Did/does Catholicism or conversion affect anyone else this way?
I do not take credit for it myself but thank God and the Catholic Church. I really feel that they are bringing out a newer, happier me! And showing me areas in which I need to change and grow. I know I still have such a long way to go but am so thankful for these positive changes. I also feel so much more peaceful. I do feel that praying the Rosary (most days!) is attributing to this also.
Just curious about the experiences of others. I would love to talk to others who have experienced this.
