When I first joined these forums, I started a thread asking if I was morally obligated to tell my Father that I was becoming a Catholic.
I haven’t spoken to my father since I learned of his displeasure with the Catholic Church, but when he called me tonight, I thought it was best to tell him.
The good news is, he didn’t disown me like I thought he would. He didn’t even get upset. He did still have some misconceptions and he thinks I’m just “going through a phase.” I didn’t want to argue with him and push him in to a bad mood, so I let him speak his mind and then that was it. He had a kind of “oh well” attitude about it: one minute he’s talking about the Philippines Independent Catholic Church (I have to research this, no idea what he’s talking about) and then the next minute he’s reminding me to call my uncle.
Anyways, I just wanted to thank everyone for your prayers and advice. I’m so happy right now; it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
