I am a Catholic living in a non-Catholic, sometimes anti-Catholic family... and sometimes I just need a place to talk about it and reach out for advice, prayers, and support. I figured this would be easier than starting a new thread every time I need to "vent" or need an electronic shoulder to cry on. Thanks in advance.
My mother is participating in a play called Nunsense. It is not blatantly anti-Catholic but it is hurtful in some places and definitely irreverent. However, I was pleased to discover today that as part of their fundraiser for the play, they are sending St. Genesius medals and prayer cards to all the people who donated to the play!! I only wish they had gone through me to get the medals and things because I could have gotten them for free more than likely AND could have gotten them blessed. Please pray that the medals and prayer cards are put to good use and perhaps plant seeds of conversion for the people that receive them.
Last night my father got lambasted for suggesting to my younger brother that he may want to be more "centrist" than "leftist" on the political spectrum. Everyone in my family is very liberal except for me and my father. My father used to be a conservative but after years of being married to my mother he is now more moderate. I used to be extremely liberal but during and after my conversion I have become the most conservative in my family. It's a source of a lot of tension/stress in my family. Most of the time I just keep quiet rather than getting into arguments. :(
Please pray for my family's conversion... :)
