Why do you love Catholic Answers Forums

Why do you love Catholic Answers Forums?

(Any and all answers will be accepted. From serious to ummmm less than.)


#2

I can’t say I “love” them.

Why do YOU love CAF?


#3

I used to really enjoy CAF when they had the “Ask An Apologist” category; now it just seems…boring,


#4

“Like” then.

It is a place where we can ask honest serious questions about the Faith, where we can evangelize to Catholics and non Catholics, where we can pray for one another and support one another in our journey to Heaven, where we can share our faults and our triumphs and where we can truly honestly be ourselves. We will never meet face to face (most of us) but we will hopefully meet in Heaven and we’ll pick up right where we left off but in a glorious sense.

I have learned SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much about the Catholic Faith/Church and I am a cradle to grave—womb to tomb devout practicing Catholic. I’ve learned a lot of other stuff I never thought I would (wink wink). I’ve gotten to see how a lot of you all live and practice your faith and love one another and God. My life has been truly blessed for coming here and finding a place of Faith and love. God Bless you all and yours as well, today and always.

I have met some very nice people here and it has been nice to share with them frustrations about politics or news events.
I like being able to pray for people on prayer intentions and I have asked people to pray for me a few times and I feel my prayers were answered.
I have been here almost 10 years now.
I joined shortly after being received into the Catholic Church.
Participating in many threads, I am still learning about the Catholic faith.
There are many benefits to being a member on CAF - friendship, education, faith building, prayer, discussion on Catholic News and World News.


#7

One thing I enjoy about it is that it gives me the opportunity to share what knowledge I do have about the Catholic Faith. It’s always nice to have something of some value and be able to help others with it, no matter how small that might be.


#8

People have been welcoming for a struggling mind. People have been nothing but forgiving of my failures and shortcomings. Lastly it gives me hope one day I can believe.


#9

That’s awesome. It gives hope to some of us who may emphasize the glass being half empty at times. :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing.


#10

I can meet people like you who make me feel like a Saint by comparison.
Do I get a flag for that?


#11

No, I will just have you banned outright. It’s all good.

I’ll try to answer that question again. This question makes the assumption that we all love CAF. So if we don’t reply, we don’t love CAF?
There is a danger in loving any Internet Forum. They can become a false god. Our main focus should always be JC. I have been known to get addicted. Like spending 4 or 5 hours a day on forums. That’s too much IMO. Maybe I am almost doing that now.
So the question we need to ask is, can I really justify my time on here? The answer is…no not 4 hours a day anyway. I aim to get it back to 2 hours at least.


#14

You think too much. :slight_smile: Yes, 2 hours is better, you’re right.


#15

You are not the first person to say that. I take it as a compliment. Better than: “You think too little”


#16

Because I am looking for a fight.


#17

Shut it. :rofl:


#18

I like CAF because sometimes, I get really good responses to my questions which help me intellectually and spiritually. Also, I like to answer others’ questions.


#19

Brittany, your answers are very good!


#20

Thank you! I certainly hope so, I wouldn’t want to mislead anybody. :sweat_smile:
