She first encountered me on WebMD after she saw that I suffered from scrupulosity, and we got into Catholic/Protestant discussions, and she saw from an anti-Catholic website that Catholicism was not consistent with historical teachings about “Outside the Church, there is no salvation.” She asked for a group that still held to the pre-Vatican II beliefs, and I suggested Most Holy Family Monastery.
What a bad move that was.
Now her fear and scrupulosity has increased, as they told her not to watch TV, as modern TV promotes evil, according to them, and now she’s terrified of everything. Now she’s searching for churches that hold to similar views of the Dimonds. I commented on how one supporter of the Monastery lacked compassion towards me when I suffered from scrupulosity, such as when I suggested I was afraid I would hurt myself, and asked if he was concerned, and he just said: Free will, man.
Now she wants his name on Youtube, and she defriended me because I refused to give it to her, out of fear for her well being.
What do I do? I know that some people in the traditionalist community look down on the Dimonds (as I saw on some of these forums). I want Christ to have mercy on us, and to guide us to Him. But I want to go back to the way things were, when I didn’t have to travel two hours so I could go to mass and confession. Why would God allow an apostasy to happen?
