Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post. I have recently decided to return to the Catholic Church. im 22 and i went to Catholic School all my life up until college but never believed in God. In college i struggled with addiction to Oxi Cotin/Heroin and got help. While in treatment my friend refered me to a Evengalical church where i was born again. I went there off and on for about 2 yrs as i struggled on and off with my addiction. One of the huge problems i had with the church is their extreme criticism of other religions especially Catholics. It seemed at almost every Sunday serviced i attended they ripped them apart. He would say “im not trying to criticise the Catholics but…” or “thats one thing thats wrong with the catholic religion.” So i usually sticked to youth group. In all my years of going to Cathlolic Mass i never once heard a priest say anything like that about another religion. After the great youth pastor decided to leave this summer i decided to return to my Catholic upbringing. One major event was my Uncle who worked for the Catholic Church in Alexandria Virginia passed away this winter, he was a great man and always told me he knew i would come back. My best friends ive known all my life still go to the other church openly criticise my returning to Catholicism. The one said he would never marry a Catholic girl because she could never be on the same spiritual level as him because of the religion. I know its gonna be a very different expereince coming back but there was something i didnt get out of the Evangelical church and i believe it was Holy Communion. I am sorry this is really long and i know id probably skip over myself but any feeback would be great. I know one of the huge differences i will experience is the praying in tounges which at the other church almost everyone did. IF anyone who has been in a similar situation or just anyone with some advice they could give me would be great.
thank you much and God Bless.
