Hi, my name is Laurelin. I’ve been on these forums for a while but this is the first time I’ve posted.
Recently, I got an internship at a ministry on campus called Campus Renewal Ministries. It’s been such a blessing in so many ways, but sometimes I feel out of place because I am a devout Catholic. The people I work with, including my boss, are wonderful people, but the majority of them are fallen away Catholics. It’s amazing to see their relationship with God, but I can’t seem to shake this feeling that they should come back to the Church.
The thing is though, that a lot of them felt that they grew the most when they left the Church, so I’m kind of like, “Who am I to tell them that they should come back to the place where they were most spiritually stagnant?”, even though I know with every fiber of my being that the truth lies in the Catholic Church.
Ugh, I’m so torn and I don’t know what to do. I’ve gotten a lot of hate from other Protestants (or non-Denominational, as a lot of Christians call themselves now) in the past, so I am familiar with defending my faith a little bit, but I still love my Protestant brothers and sisters.
If you have any advice, please tell me! I’m in desperate need of help!
