My name is Ian and I am 25 years old currently residing in Florida with my family. I have never been one to consider myself a religious follower but more of a spiritual believer. As I have gotten older I have felt that there has been a crossroad presented to me in which I must choose to continue on my current path or began a new chapter by accepting God and Christ into my life. I would say that I have lived a very good life so far but I feel that there is a void that has been eating away at me for a few years. I have looked at several religions and wish to follow the Christian path and feel that Catholic is the direction in which I want to go.
But to be honest with all I do not really know enough about the Catholic religion except maybe what you hear from word of mouth or TV. What needs to be done? I have read that I must be baptized, have communion and be accepted into the church but how does one go about this? Is there any books, internet sites, etc that can provide me with a good understanding of the Catholic faith and when should I look into talking to a Priest? I know I might seem to be getting ahead of myself but I am not sure what questions to ask.
- I am divorced
- I was not married in a church
- I am not baptized
- I do not belong to any other religious organization
Any help you may provide will be greatly appreciated. :tiphat:
