Oh, what do I do,what do I do? So if you’ve read my other posts, I am in the process of becoming Catholic.
I’ve been dating my Catholic boyfriend for 2.5 years and have really became to love and respect the Catholic faith, and am yearning to be apart of it. I discussed it with all of my immediate family and friends to let them know I would be going to RCIA and didn’t really come across anything bad. Mostly just “I support you if it’s what you feel you want to do, just make sure you learn both sides of the story”. I was very happy that no one was saying anything bad, until…
I needed to get a copy of my baptismal certificate, and my uncle was the one who baptised me. So anyways, I called him to ask if I could have a copy or letter from him, since I lost mine and when he asked me why, I told him that I was considering converting and that I was going to be attending RCIA. Unknown to me, my uncile who is a Full Gospel Pastor, was raised Catholic. When he told me this my heart started pounding in my throat!
He said "I think you really need to be careful. I was grew up Catholic *until I found Jesus, *and you know, I had to go and confess my sins to a priest.
I was so hurt and offended…“until I found Jesus”? I wanted to cry…anyways, I told him that I would be interested in talking to him about his feelings toward it, cuz I really don’t want to be one-sided in the learning process, but I’m an emotinal person,a nd I can’t handle face-to-face conversations of this maner. We emailed back and forth a bit since then, but I haven’t seen or talked to him.
Now my problem comes, is that he’s going to be staying here for Christmas, and I’m so afraid that I’m going to get stuck in a conversation with him, and then I’m going to come out the fool and that everyones going to be upset with me. PLeae pray for me, and I could use to advise on what to say as well.
((I have already made up my mind to become Catholic, I’m not in the deciding stage anymore, if that helps advise-wise))
