A Seperated Brethren Reconciled
|I am 24 years old and I am a blessed wife, mommy to two baby girls born 16 months apart, and a college senior majoring in English. I am head over heels in love with Jesus and His Holy Catholic Church. I began my Christian life when I was baptized at 14 in a Baptist church. I spent my high school years actively involved in my Baptist youth group, where I grew closer to God everyday through fellowship, daily prayer, and Scripture meditation. After graduating high school, God placed a burden on my heart for the lack of unity in the Christian family. In my search for answers and prayers for Truth, God brought me two things: my future husband and the Truth of His Catholic Church, where the root of Christian unity lies. I received the sacraments of confirmation and Eucharist in April 2009 at 19 years old, and now I am an active defender of the Catholic Faith, with a passion to see the Christian family once again united under one flock.|
Society conspires against her from early infancy. Her brain is steadily filled with plaster until it sets: ‘If you’re not married by the time you’re twenty-five, you’ll have good reason to be ashamed’; ‘if you laugh, you won’t look dignified’ ; ‘if your face betrays your feelings, you’ll look coarse’; ‘if you mention the existence of a single body hair, you’re repulsive’ ; ‘if a boy kisses you on the cheek in public, you’re a whore’; if you enjoy eating, you’re a pig’; ‘if you take pleasure in sleeping, you’re no better than a cow’; and so on.
These precepts would be merely anecdotal if they weren’t taken so much to heart."
