LOL! The good nuns must have failed miserably with me. And so did our archbishop, when he personally awarded me for my knowledge of catechism. But you're right, maybe I never was a REAL Catholic. That's why I found Jesus in a Southern Baptist Church!
If he awarded you. What does that all mean. So they told you Catholics worship saints. Then they awarded for teaching worship of saints. We know that can't be. If he did he was died against Catholic teaching.
Also let me tell you an open secret if you confessed the Nicene Creed and believed it. You had Jesus all along. Whether you know it or not. Just read 1John 4 . Of course if you really believed. All of this confession stems from famous verses of scripture especially 1John4 .
I have personally encounter an occultist who could not declare The Apostles or Nicene Creed after she told me she was a Christian. She could not do it in the personal pronoun. I challenged her she could not declare it with strange manifestations. Honest. Very important to know with all these " New Age" thought going around.
