This is probably not a normal page to see on a Catholic Blogger's Blog. But it is something I thought important to share.
As I have mentioned before my husband is NOT Catholic, and we actually go to two churches each Sunday. This by no means is a convenient or easy thing to do with a family of seven. But I can't think of a better way to handle the situation.
When I married my Husband, I knew he was a serious Baptist who loved his faith, and I was a serious Catholic who LOVED my faith. We naively thought we could eventually convert the other, and I guess in a way are still trying. You know how they say love is blind? Yes..... it is.
But here is the thing, I love my husband. He is isn't perfect. But neither am I. His faith and church is full of errors, but mine could improve in some ways also. (Notice how I worded that.) I have learned a lot from attending his church over the years about how children's programs, and small groups can do wonders for building community in a church.
I have also grown stronger in my Catholic faith, because I have someone questioning me about every belief, tradition, and practice. It has forced me to look for answers, and as I found them, I have grown to LOVE my Catholic faith even more than before.
SO I have remained as strong as a Catholic as I have been able to. Again I am NO SAINT, but I hope to be someday!!!
Maybe one of these days I will get around to writing some of my own apologetics, or re-posting some of the things that make the most sense to me. And it all just seems to make sense to me. That is why I am still Catholic.
