I was jealous of Catholics


…But their theology didn’t appeal to me. It didn’t make sense.

They worshipped Mary. (I thought.)

They worshipped Saints. (I also thought.)

They tried to earn salvation. (I was told.)

They made stuff up that wasn’t biblical at all. (I was also told.)

And they had a guy in Rome who was a little like Simon Says. (And I believed they did whatever he told them to do.)

And then, I discovered the Eucharist. I think they called what happened to me … infused grace. I read John 6 and I knew it was true. If Jesus Christ was making an appearance at Mass, I had to get there. I had to be there. I had to let His Presence wash over me.

There is no more compelling motivation for becoming Catholic and digging in to find out what Catholics really believe than the truth of the Real Presence.

So they had nuns. That’s nice. What mattered was they had Jesus’ Body and Blood.

So they had big families. Kind of neat. What mattered was they had the Real Presence.

So they had cute boys. I’d long gotten over all those crushes. What mattered now was Jesus and only Jesus.

And when you fall in love with Him, He sets all the misconceptions about His Church in order.

One-by-one the perceived red flags disappeared. They didn’t worship Mary. They didn’t worship the Saints. They believed they were saved by grace which led to faith and good works. They didn’t make up stuff. And the man in Rome – well, I had seen enough Christian division to know that God might want a Vicar on Earth to shepherd the flock. The entire faith was organic. It fit together like the parts of one body.

The Body of Christ.

I’m not jealous anymore. I’m thankful.

I’m Catholic.

what if i want to get married but i don't want kids? I mean I think babies are annoying as hell and just ask for too much effort. I'd much rather spend my money on holidays abroad than on diapers and wiggles concerts




Well, I’m only going to give you my opinion because you asked for it.

Picture this, you fall in love and get married with a person who you plan to spend the rest of your life with. Everything is peachy keen, they are catch pajamas, you’re both successful, you both move far away from in laws to a nice city some where so its always just you two. Vacations, night outs, romance you name it. One morning your spouse leaves early to pick you up a coffee at your favorite coffee shop, gets into an accident. He/she have brain damage and a spinal injury. Not only is he/she unable to talk, but you’ll be hand feeding him/her, bathing him, caring for him the rest of his/her life.

What do you do? Do you quit your job and move in with in-laws back home taking care of your spouse around the clock, or do you drive him/her there, drop him/her off in the yard with a suit case because that’s “annoying and too much effort.”

If the idea of caring for another human being is disgusting to you, I would consider choosing another vocation besides marriage. Because let’s be honest here, making love makes babies. Nothing is a 100% effective, except abstinence. And even if you didn’t have children, you still have a spouse.

If the idea of caring for a tiny human being that you made yourself, is (from your perspective) absolutely perfect, flawless, wonderful and adorable, how do you plan to take care of a flawed, imperfect, adult who suddenly knows all of your pet peeves and does them on a daily basis.

What is love to you? Is it feelings? Emotions that are hormonal responses from various forms of stimulation? Because love can not be reduced to just emotions. It is the ultimate act of unselfishness, chosen freely as an act of will. Is this easy? No. It isn’t meant to be, by love we are refined and purified. But to love is what we were born to do, we were created to love and be loved. Fish swim, birds fly, we love.

Take a look at the young of other mammals. When they are born they can walk/crawl to their food source. Look at a human baby. We are the superior beings, yet our young just makes loud noises. Hungry? Loud noises. Wet diaper? Loud noises. Uncomfortable? Loud noises. Its completely dependent on the parents for care for years. Why? Because love. That’s why. It is what we do.

Love is messy, annoying, and yeah it is hard, but only in love will you have joy.

And for the record, who ever said you have to go to wiggles concerts? The good times don’t end with kids, in fact it gets better. You have any idea what it is like to be moving 200 mph through your day, then your 5 year old walk up to you and asks, “Mommy would you like to watch the clouds with me?” I stop and smell the roses, pick them, then look for bugs under rocks. I have even more of an excuse to attend theme parks, stay up late telling shadow puppet stories, eat endless supply of Halloween candy, travel and stop at every site along the way, because I’m not just doing it for my own experience, but because I’m depositing dreams and memories into tiny human beings. I’m someone’s whole world.

People are effort, people are worth it.

And you know, maybe your vocation isn’t marriage, and that’s okay :)

There’s no tears in my eyes js


Teaching About Vocations and Occupations
"Being a physician, on the other hand, is an occupation. Just as religious sisters work as teachers, nurses, doctors, and countless other jobs, a wife and mother can work outside the home as well. But the occupation must always fit within the vocation. Life becomes disordered when the employment gains supremacy and the vocation is squeezed to conform to the occupation."

Crucifixion by the Romans, 1887, Vasily Vereshchagin

As I stand in the fire of pain, struggling with forgiveness in so many areas of my life, I can look to the Cross, and to the mother beneath it, and remember the blooming rosebush in the dead of winter. May I have the grace to see her in front of me, leading me to her Son, teaching me more about the joy of forgiveness.

People who say Catholics are no fun have obviously never been to a Catholic wedding.

I was just at a Catholic wedding yesterday and let me just say 10/10 would recommend.


Santa Maria Maddalena ~ Italy | By Sturla Nøstvik


Santa Maria Maddalena ~ Italy | By Sturla Nøstvik

When things go wrong, you ask yourself, ¿How can there be a good God? I think the conclusion that i come to, is that both faith and doubt are equally logical choices in the face of tragedy. Faith is to say ‘Yes, a future will have pain, but there is a meaning and a purpose deeper than that pain.’ For me, that is my choice: to believe rather than doubt.

Enjoy where you’re at. Be grateful for what you have.


Being fervently Catholic doesn’t automatically mean you have a religious vocation.



‘im not a feminist’ ‘why?’ ‘because i don’t hate men’


You can’t deny the simple fact that feminism is a movement for women and their boogeyman is the entire male gender. That feminism is about hating men. You simply have to look to what the political and…

So before I say anything about this, I would like to say that i don’t know how accurate any of this is since most of it seems to be taken out of context. I don’t care so much about the whole “is feminism against men” argument (at least not in this post, because I do think it is against men. I just don’t think this post provides the best argument.)

I just want to say how much these quotes sadden me. Every time I read quotes like these or hear women speak like this I just feel so much sadness for these women. I feel for them, I really do. 

I can’t imagine how much hurt these women must have received in order to feel so much hatred toward men as an entire group of people. People are not just this passionate about hating other human beings unless they have been seriously hurt. And it just makes me so sad to imagine the pain these women must have experienced in their lives. 

I am so sad that they did not get to experience the joy of having real men in their lives. Men who would stand by their side, count them as equals, defend them, fight for them. These women obviously only have horrible examples of men in their lives. And I wish from the bottom of my heart that they had men in their lives who would show them how real men can and should treat women. 

My brothers bring me such immense joy every day. They treat me with love and respect and make me feel beautiful and honored.  They would never want to cause me pain. I don’t know what I would do without my wonderful brothers to help support me and show me true brotherly love. I never had any biological brothers growing up, so I imagine that the men in my life are probably as close to my heart as any real brothers would ever be. 

To the women who have not had such wonderful examples of men in their lives, I will continue to pray that you will find someone who can show you a true example of what a real man and brother should be. I hope someone comes along who will protect you, compliment you, respect you, admire you, support you, and love you.

And to all my brothers out there -both the ones I know and the ones I don’t- I want to thank you. Please continue to love the women around you, and be an example to the men who have not been all that they should be.
