During my week in France I came across several churches dedicated to Our Lady, or Notre Dame, to be correct. Notre Dame de Pays, Notre Dame de Jerusalem, and Notre Dame de Consolation are three I recall. I wonder how many varieties of dedication to Our Lady there are?
Seems like an appropriate place to ask; I'm thinking of joining the Catholic Church for a number of reasons, most notably and obviously due to the fact I feel it would bring me closer to God. But would the fact that I'm a homosexual, with no intention of repressing that for the sake of stigma within the faith, be an obstacle towards membership, or would most Catholics be alright with that, especially amongst the student population?
Woop for St. Anthony! He's saved my arse so many times when I've lost stuff
