Its nice and peaceful..to me at least..
It's dead...to me at least.
This is a strange reality..and sometimes its nice to find a place where everything makes sense..everything is as it should be..and its a home..warm and cosy and peaceful..to me that is the Catholic Church..
Where forgiveness and love is the
energy that flows..
A refuge..a sanctuary..where the door is open to anyone who wants a place to be..a place to heal..to rest..to grow
Thats how I see it..
Its a home..in the dark crazy storm thats raging..it is a home where one can find confort..by being in the presence of the Holy Eucharist..
Where you dont feel judgment..you feel forgiveness...where I have never ever heard anyone say we are saved..they arent..
I honestly wouldnt know where else to be..I have looked around..but there is no place like it to me..
When there are inner doubts..or unrest..just light a candle to the Blessed Mother..even in the quiet of your home..kneel and pray quietly..I have it lit every night..it gives peace..in my opinion
I am so grateful that through Divine Providence I was born into it..and continued into it..though my knowledge is not up to par with other Catholics I know..I hope it doesnt show too much
I guess I am remembering back to my own childhood and raising in the CC. It was more ritual, a *have-to-do* kind of thing....as a child, with nuns whacking you up side the head, or your knuckles, or throwing books or erasers as you.
And in church, fainting due to hunger or maybe it was boredom. As an adult, observing people whose minds obvioiusly were anywhere but where there physical person was, who would about bust down the doors to get home to their dinner or what have you, after service was over.
Nope. no life there in my opinion.
To me..........communion with the Most High with fellow believers is more like this:
I understand that not everybody will get out of it though what I do.......
I went to a Catholic school run by nuns and there was no whacking over the head or anything similar..and believe me..if there was a little girl that deserved it, *not that I favor AT ALL physical punishment*..that was me..
So many stereotype cliches..I dont know where they come from..the nuns I went to school with were not only good..they were Saints..in my eyes..always smiling..calm and patient..
In Church..one should concentrate on the Ceremony and the Communion..that is what I try to do..as I prefer to pray alone..but think of all the people that have sacrificed to bring us the possibility to go to Mass..they risked their lives in many countries
Thank you for the music..but I do not understand the worship of any country..
I do not believe God prefers a land or a people
If a father prefered one son to another I wouldnt think he is a good father..and since God is Perfect..it just doesnt make sense to me..but thats just my opinion..naturally I also do not believe it
