The Prodigal Daughter: Katie Holmes Returns To Catholicism, Suri Banned From Scientology-Ecumenical
The inquisitir ^ | 9 July 2012 | Inqu

Posted on 07/09/2012 5:31:55 PM PDT by Cronos

Following the quick and unexpected settlement of her divorce proceedings, Katie Holmes has been doing a bit of house-cleaning in her personal life, part of which includes her return to the Catholic faith, five years after leaving it in favor of soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Cruise’s Scientology.

Holmes’ return to Catholicism is evident due to her registration as a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City. “Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us,” a member of the church’s choir told the Huffington Post. “She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.”...

The warmth extended to Holmes from the Catholic Church contrasts Scientology’s reaction to the divorce. Part of the divorce settlement precludes the couple’s daughter, Suri, from being exposed to Scientology at all. “Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn’t permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement,” a source told RadarOnline.

I initially thought this was a good thing, then I read that the parish she's heading to is liberal. From the fire into the frying pan, instead of jumping to safety in a conservative parish

But she got the kid out. Lib Catholic is better than daddy’s deal. Who knows, they still do the readings God’s Word is power.

Well good for Katy.
Should have had better sense than to get mixed up with a nut job from that cult.

For the love of God, it’s at least a Catholic Church! She and her daughter are out of Scientology, which is great.

A lot of people would say my parish is “liberal,” but it has us in it, and a lot of others who are serious about faith and morals and accurate catechesis. And everyone is fervent in good works. I took a batch of kids to Mass today, just because I felt like it, and Father was late because he was visiting a nursing home. We all - 35 people or so - sang hymns for half an hour until he arrived to say Mass. It was lovely, almost like being Presbyterian again, but for the absence of 4-part harmony.

I hope the parish will help Katie Holmes remember what it was like to be a regular person, and expose her daughter to normal life for the first time.

When the choir member quoted in the article said Katie hasn’t yet attended “services”, I suspected this is a liberal parish.

*sigh* Well, we must thank God for this conversion anyway & pray that she continues to seek the fullness of Truth.

Wasn’t Nicole Kidman also (at least nominally) Catholic?

What is it with Cruise and Catholic girls?

Welcome back, sister. The parish is Jesuit, so it’s iffy, but it is a beautiful old large stone Gothic pile of a church. I remember going there a couple of times when I was in NY, and I can recall the homosexual couple smooching in the pew in front of me at the Kiss of Peace, which was a bit off-putting, to say the least...

Yes, I think Nicole and Keith Urban had a nominally Catholic wedding ... and a nominally Catholic marriage, if that, since someone else was hired to gestate their child.

Who knows, with Hollyweirders? I read biographies of movie and tv stars ... got one of James Garner from the library just last week. Most of them are pretty mixed up.

Scientology is a cult with a capital “C” extremely dangerous and evil....

All I know about celebs is what I’m confronted with from the racks in the grocery check-out aisle, LOL! But it’s amazing how all their crap insinuates itself into our “culture”, even when you try to avoid it.

It makes me wonder what happened with Cruise and/or Scientology. I can't jut see him, so quickly, letting Suri go, his own daughter basically leaving his cult! Holmes better be careful.

My wife suspects that Katie must have something GOOD (bad) against him, some info, knowledge, and proof. I have a hard time believing it was settled this quickly.

How about we each stop and say a prayer for Tom Cruise.
It could happen, his return to the faith. I hope it does.
Am I correct, Tom didn’t have a very good father?

I believe Kidman was Catholic, too. When she left Cruise, she took the adopted kids (?) and returned to the Church.

I hate to be cynical (cough, cough) but is this some lawyerly tactic to use against the Scientologists?

I was under the impression Nicole left the kids behind.
If memory serves me correctly - there was a cringe-inducing article where, either Tom or Katie, describes the 2 older ones calling Katie “mom”.

Cruise was raised a catholic - even considered the priesthood at one point.

Tom received full custody of older two - they have had little contact with Nicole until recently

This article describes joint custody - but that the children chose to stay with dad.
Also - goes into their refusal to call Nicole “mom”

oh I wasn’t really trying to correct you - sorry if it came off that way.

I’ve always thought it was strange and sad how he behaved towards Nicole.

Scientologists never ever ever willingly let the kids go.

In the last 2 years there has been turmoil among the top guns - accusations of imprisonment & abuse amongst themselves when they fall out of favor with each other.
And now there is the death of the son of a former bigwig - and she was not allowed to see her son’s body, or attend any service.

So that leaves me with 2 scenarios...

1) Katie has something SO HUGE on Tom - that he has no choice.

or

2) Katie and Tom worked this out together to keep Suri away from the sickos.

We could actually be watching this twisted group imploding in on itself.

And I didn’t mean that you had corrected me, lol. I was just happy to receive your new info.

I’m sure she has evidence of Tom being gay. Look at what’s happening to John Travolta (another Scientologist).

I feel bad for John.

He strikes me as someone who got in way over his head and then probably had to deal with years of extortion.

Hopefully, now that the truth seems to be out there - that will give him the ability to wriggle free.
