When I think about what brings people to a faith, or what keeps them in a faith, I come up with 4 main categories.
Which of the four is the primary reason that brought you to Catholicism or that is keeping you Catholic? There’s no wrong answer. Everyone I’ve talked to is Catholic for their own reasons.
1. Logic - Logically deducing that Catholicism is the right faith.
-I have studied Christianity in depth and I realized that the Catholic Church is the true Church
-All the evidence in the Bible points to Catholicism
-I have read CS Lewis Mere Christianity and writings by Saint Augustine that led me to the Catholic Church
-I am convinced that the historical evidence points to Papal Infallibility, Apostolic Succession, etc.
2. Spiritual - Having a spiritual connection with the Catholic Church
-I feel intimately connected with God when I go to Mass and/or receive the Eucharist
-I am deeply intrigued by the great spiritual writers of the Church
-Catholic spirituality always seems much more meaningful then other Christian faiths.
3. Emotional - Having a yearning that can only be satisfied by the Catholic Church
-I need God
-I realized that everybody has a God-sized hole in their hearts that can only be satisfied by Jesus Christ through his Catholic Church
-I don’t know what I would do with my life if I left the Catholic Church
4. Experience - Following the Catholic faith based on a profound personal experience
-I have witnessed a miracle
-I gave Catholicism a try, and my life was transformed
-Somebody I deeply admire is a devout Catholic, which led me to the faith
