I’m a new Catholic and I have so many questions. My husband is a cradle Catholic and he said he learned more in RCIA with me, than he ever knew before … and when I ask him a question, he doesn’t know. He’s interested, and we search through the Catechism but often I can’t find the answers.
I’ve heard someone speak of a “spiritual advisor”. Is that something common? Would that be appropriate for me? I feel like I have so many questions and need help with trying to strengthen my faith and learning not just the how but the why of this amazing Catholic Church.
If this is appropriate, could I ask a deacon? Would that be weird for me to approach him about that?
If that’s all right, do I pay him? Give him an annual gift?
What else should I know about this?
