To those Non-Catholic Visitors

With several non-Catholic comments, I wanted to create a welcoming post to those non-Catholics visiting and commenting on this blog. I know how different our faiths are. I know that we don't agree with many different aspects of the truth. But, we are nonetheless united in baptism and the hope of our Savior Crucified. We may be different, but let us work to love, love, and love. Through the example of the saints, may love be the foundation for all of our lives. For love makes the world go around. Our Lord Himself gives us the Cross - an instrument of torture turned into the greatest example of love. To harbor hatred and resentment for each other is to be a slave of the devil. Let us respectful debate and discuss but not hate.

For those new comments. Would you please take this poll and leave the answers in the comment box. I just wanted to know a little more about you.

1) What denomination/religion are you?
2) Were you ever Catholic or did you ever attend a Catholic Mass?
3) Please describe your faith and beliefs
4) Are you pro-life?
5) Has this blog helped you understand more about Catholicism?

Thank you and God Bless.

I've just discovered your website, because I searched for feast days on Blog search.
1) I grew up Baptist and currently go to a Baptist church, but no longer afiliate myself with the denomination officially.
2) Never been. I once shared an art studio with some nice catholics for about a year and they profoundly affected my art work.
3)See my blog. My ramblings will not be consise enough for this comment.
4) I don't discuss religion or politics at the dinner table.
5)yes. I have been searching for a Christian faith that is more interested in the litergy since the church of my upbringing was about as non-litergical as you can get. I've toyed with the idea of becoming Catholic, but I think my Baptist upbringing makes me skitish of joining anything too "organized". I have many great catholic friends with whom I have more in common than I differences, but there are still a few doctrinal differences that keep me from taking the plunge and becoming Catholic. I do grow weary of the anti-catholic sentiments amongst some Protestants and try to stick up for you guys any time I get a chance.

Thank you for all of your posts. I hope that we can develop a friendship centered on the only Truth - Our Savior Risen from the Dead.

Please let me know if you have any questions with Catholicism. I am here to serve the Lord.
