I struggle to know where else to post this, but this seemed good.
I just wanted to share how much I love the CAF and website. It’s been a blessing, and I have learned so much! It really helped me as I came into the Catholic Church this past Easter.
I find that i come here for a “Catholic Fix” as I like to call it. Currently I cannot attend Daily mass, and it seems the only contact I have right now with my parish is at Sunday Mass. I don’t really know a lot of people, though I want to get involved in one or more of the groups among the parish. It’s a bit complicated too because I am a SAHM for my 5 year old DD…since it is summer, she is always with me days. My DH is not accepting of my new found faith, and I have made a promise to not confuse our DD by teaching her my views…they are both LDS, as was I until recently. Initially I respected it because I wanted to keep my marriage together. Unfortunatley now it puts me in a bind. Essentially it means I hestitate to join any groups that meet during the week when husband is working, and DD is with me…SO, what that means is this website, and the CA radio show are my daily fixes.
I know I really need to get some books and read when I can. I feel very much like I am floundering in my faith. Not that I am losing it, just that it’s really hard to hold onto my strength in it. When I can come here, it fills me, nearly as much as receiving Eucharist! (I said nearly, of course I know nothing can really compare to that!).
In the fall when DD goes to kindergarten I will have a few hours again daily to attend Adoration, and any other activities that would be church related, that I cannot include my DD in.
True, I could get a sitter, but it’s difficult. For now, this website is a blessing in my life, and I am grateful for it and all the wonderful folks I have been able to have discussions with.
Thank You to the creators of this site, and to all of you who have helped me into the Catholic Faith! God Bless!
