**I have been a catholic for 36 years and am now 57 years old. I believed that it was alright for me to live my moral life the way I wanted to as long as I went to Mass and believed. I was convinced some of the teachings of the Church were obviously wrong. The Holy Spirit opened my mind a year ago, I read and studied about Catholicism, I read the readings and gospel everyday, there is so much to learn I never have to worry about running out of material. I spent considerable time reading about sin and confession and it took me awhile to understand why so many things the world sees as ok are not ok.
"God created me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this life and to be
happy with Him forever in heaven," says the Baltimore Catechism. …
The above quote sums up everything about our lives. Everything we do is to be for God.
I can only recommend reading, and studying about our wonderful faith. When I read something that didn’t seem right I checked it out in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
It is a wonderful journey.
