Remember, this is an opportune time for demons to seek to tempt and ensnare you if they can, ignore them and hold fast to the truth that has been delivered to you!

Thank you, ortho_cat,
I fear you are right. I hadn't considered it before. I need to pray extra hard before my responses to everyone.

Thank you. Despite the uncomfortable dialogs my wife and I have had to have with our Catholic friends, my house feels very blessed. My kids are as happy about this decision as we are.

Thank you for your support.

Well, the fun has begun. Now that word has gotten out, I'm finding myself having to defend my decision to a slew of people. It turns out there's quite a few closet Catholic apologists out there.

The toughest thing for me to deal with is the assumption by some who hardly know me that I haven't prayed or thought this HUGE decission through. Part of me wants to just tell them off, but so far I haven't. Smiley

Prayers are welcomed.

Catholic Answers got wind of my conversion many years ago, so I got calls from two of their evangelists. I found out later that it was the Opus Dei folks who called CA. Gotta love them. Smiley

My son led us to Orthodoxy.

Wow. Thats something I do not want to happen to us. I don't mind answering questions for regular Catholics. I don't want to debate someone like Jimmy Akin. :0
