I have found those recently converted to Catholisism to be the most appreciative of our faith. A lot of us are like spoiled kids who completely take for granted the precious traditions that God gave us. At least I did.
The blessed Mary is such a wonderful role model for us and no, she is not just like any other woman. Girls need that image of the ideal woman now more than ever.
I never took my faith for granted. I am so grateful to my parents for instilling in me the love of our Lord, Jesus Christ and his Blessed Mother. I had the best life growing up in the United States Military and a Catholic household! Couldn’t get any better than that!!!
"This is a sad day for all true sons and daughters of the Protestant Reformation, for all who lived and died for its truths," Douglas Groothuis, a professor at the evangelical Denver Seminary, said in a posting on Beckwith's own blog, adding sternly: " . . . you are embracing serious theological error."
I wonder if Groothuis thinks that this kind of comment will change Beckwith's mind?
My father was a convert & he truly was appreciative. I have all the respect for any Christian but I was born & will remain Catholic After being exposed to others I still see it the most “earthy” for lack of any other word to describe it.
