    I admire Mary so much. She went through so many hardships and get didn't lose her faith in God. And she gave birth to the most wonderful teacher for all mankind
    Mary was a badass.

    But honestly, Catholicism pays so much respect and reverence towards Mary because she is the example we can follow: she was a normal, human girl, but a true believer, and that is why "God chose her" and all that stuff
    And she went through pregnancy and childbirth without being married - back then, she would've almost definitely been stoned to death - that takes some balls.
    Plus, she gave birth to God, technically, and that doesn't happen everyday...

    Cute. How do you feel about Western governments who align themselves to "Christian values" but unleash such perils on the world btw? I think that's another reason people are not going Church or aligning themselves to those values.
    Then they're tainting the reputation of Christianity and everything Christ stood for.

    Why ever not?
    My beliefs and religion contradict one another, it would be hypocritical of me to associate with it in any way

    Please clarify. Thanks


    Can I say, I feel you are possibly being slightly racist. If so, this offends me and can you please remove your previous post before it is reported to the mods.

    I go every Sunday and then go to lifegroups (bible study kinda sessions) during the week!
    I would encourage you to go regularly, find somewhere you're comfortable in and where the spirit leads you

    Ah man, you all had church-related banter without me :cry2:



    I go to church when I can (I have dispensation not to attend regularly due to ill health). Sadly that's not very often :no: Like, I don't think I managed a single service this year's Holy Week, despite being a practising Catholic :cry2: It was a huge disappointment.

    As a child I used to go pretty much every Sunday. That all stopped around secondary school (after we got the necessary priest's reference to get in) but we'd still go often. Now I'm lucky if I can go to midnight Mass on Christmas Day or any Holy Week service, or any service at all tbh :erm:

    I am trying to reintegrate myself into the general church community by helping to run confirmation classes at the parish associated with my secondary school. I see the priest there about 2-4 times a year for confession and general guidance in my spiritual life. I am fortunate enough that I have a rich uncle who is a devout Catholic and likes to send me on pilgrimages, in hope of a miracle with regards to my health. So I've been to Lourdes once and the Holy Land, which was an incredible experience

    I should go more often than I do. I go every Christmas and Easter at least. I love the service and the vicar is lovely.

    I've never met a "real" Christian in my life mind you. I'm sure it goes against human nature.
    No it doesn't.
