VonNoble Posted March 15, 2018 Report Share Posted March 15, 2018 Sometimes we forget to say a few good words to those of a different belief than our own. My my father was a devout Catholic. He saw Imperfections in the church (and plenty of not perfect clergy)..., but he believed the dogma completely and totally. He prayed openly. He went to confession often. He never failed to share whatever we had. Anyone could get a meal in our home. He never tired anyone away... so a FULL plate of food was not a guarantee growing up .... but we always had enough. He lived a good life and was a fine example to his kids. So while only one of my siblings followed his choice...in joining dad as a Catholic...I was exposed to some good things from my Catholic father. Hows about some positive comments about Catholics.... it seems over due Add on to the list...positive comments only please... ..... education ....the times I opted (it was a choice with my parents who encouraged us to try lots of things)...when I chose to go to a Catholic high school.... I definitely learned some good stuff.... Latin has come in handy a surprising number of times. .... after Hurricane Katrina ....Catholic Social Services was the first outside assistance we saw.... and they gave TO ALL without ever once asking our beliefs...preaching ....or mention God other than to quietly say.... God Bless New Orleans (or you) depending on who was there.... many said nothing but worked in horrible conditions to offer US comfort the Pope.... the current one...seems pretty okay to me so far .....join in.... von Quote Link to comment
