Coalition of Catholic States Regional Message Board
You have our region. Please don't offend the faith.
It's A faith buddy, let's have some acknowledging of the rest of the world's philosophical existence, yes?
Question for the remaining natives.
Taking into account that I already subscribe to another faith and you have no chance of converting me...
What is the best thing about being Catholic?
Raiders, I request that you not mock forthcoming answers, thanks.
I mock only that which is puerile and said with wilful ignorance...also if I have some wine I can be an ass.
Personally I'm quite spiritual, though not so taken with the codification of belief and what seems to follow.
In all honesty the best thing about being Catholic is being Catholic. We do not see our faith which our catechism states as THE faith as merely a religion. Is is a societal way of life. Being pro-life is a way of life. Receiving the sacrament of Jesus in the Eucharist and going out to the world is a way of life. We are the successors of Jesus' original apostles just as our bishops are the apostles' successors and the Pope Peter's. We are enriched with a tradition that goes back to Pentecost. We are proud of what we believe and try to live by it always. We know when we fail we will always be welcomed again through Reconciliation.
Honestly I think the best part is everything.
Overall, I like your answer. Thanks for sharing.
The only part I have a "problem" with is what I've quoted above. What is the Reconciliation you speak of? Does that mean I can willingfully and purposely fail as long as I repent later? Is there no form of retribution for misdeeds?
Reconciliation is one of what we call a sacrament in the Church. A sacrament is a gift from God that allows our souls to exist on Earth through God's grace. Reconciliation is when a person goes before a priest who sits in the person of Christ and confesses their sins to him. Th priest as the authority to forgive that person of their sin. If someone just sins for fun and then expects to be forgiven without actually being sorry, then the forgiveness does not happen in Reconciliation until the person truly understands their sin's seriousness, and they are truly sorry.
Yay! Ozoi is free to raid again!
So really, as with all moral and ethical systems, it engenders a feeling of community and belonging, which is fair enough. That is a major goal of all people after all.
I always thought the idea of confession was limited in it's appreciation of motivations regarding sin. For example the parent who kills with a loving heart. I'm not arguing that it's not a sin as espoused by Christianity, but the motivation can be pure, and thus the action can be without malice or the desire to do harm. People do for love what they would do for no other reason.
