My Wife is a protestant (at this point by name only really) After many many discussions, she agrees with almost all of the various Catholic Doctrines. She still has a few hold outs, but at this point, they are minor. She believes in the Eucharist, she at least understand why Praying with the Saints isnt bad. She has a few issues with the Pope, but other than that, from her perspective, the Catholic Churches teachings are OK (except when dealing with authority of the pope). Ultimately, she just feels it is another denom preaching what it feels is correct. But one whose principles she actually doesnt have a problem with. She even mentioned she loved the idea that the CC has the magesterium, she just doesnt think its infailiable
Anyway… long story short… she hates what protestantism is becoming. She feels it has become nothing more than a feel good experience, power point driven message. It has more to do with singing and feeling good than anything else. She wants a church that holds to the traditional method… Her comment is… “I just want to go learn about god!”
So, of coarse, I mention, well, why not try the Catholic Church. Its about as traditional as you can get. Her objections deal with the vestments and ornateness of most churches. This is actually a Huge issue for her as she feels it distracts from the message, just like power point messages can.
Question is this…
Are there any Rites that are not big on the vestments, have simple churches, but that are in Union with the Pope. I believe I could convince her to go if such a rite exists.
Thanks In Advance
