I was just reading The Church and I, Conversion Story of Francis Kang and it is disturbing to read —
This “stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles” (1 Cor 1:23) of the “No
greater love” (that a man should lay down his lie for a
friend, Jn 15.13) confounds the worldly wise and the
hedonist crowd.

— lay down his lie?

I read though Isaac’s story. “Could the Catholic Church possibly be Christian. From Baptist to Catholic.
I could relate with everything he said. From all the books he read and the experiences he has had. Down to being told to read “The Trail of Blood”. I am a graduate from Bob Jones University and grew up in a Fundamental Baptist Church and even ministered as well in them. I was a involved in a Pastoral Internship in on Fundamental (separatist) Baptist church. My own daughter told me that Catholics are not Christian. I argued that fact with her that they are and I was not even Catholic at the time. With my Bible studies from BJU, I had added much to my faith’s journey as I have come to understand more of the “fullness of the Gospel”. I have continued my studies in the Faith, having completed RCIA this April. God bless you Isaac, and Stephen Ray.

I know this is from the Mormon Church, but it is so well done I want to share with as many people as I can. What are we doing to protect our kids?

Hello.

This morning, as I was listening to EWTN Radio, I was riveted to hear your account of Jesus’ crucifixion. Your detailed and very emotional account was wonderful, but very, very hard to hear. He went through so very much for us. And for Him to do that simply because “he loves us” is sometimes hard to process.

I read your conversion story – you and your wife’s. I am a devout Protestant, “Saved” since age 6. In the last 10 years, Catholicism has slowly been calling me. I was in RCIA class in 2015. My darling fiancé joined me for class sometimes. He loved our Lord and was a “cradle Catholic”. For the first time in a long time I felt like I was “coming home”, even though a few questions still dogged me. I won’t go into the details, but I lost my angel, my life, my Damian unexpectedly.

To add to my intense and non-stop grief and pain, the leaders and fellow RCIA students completely dropped ignored me during the worst time of my life. I couldn’t believe it. Not one visit. Not one phone call. Not one E-mail or condolence card. Not even a call from the parish priest. I was very close to confirmation, too. I have no explanation for this whatsoever because all I kept hearing was “You are part of our family now.” This stunned and stung me to no end. I went through his death largely alone. (He was 59 and I was 47 at the time and planning to be married that spring of 2016).

After telling my sister recently how very hurt I still am over this, (she was raised Protestant like me in a Baptist church) she explained their behavior as saying “Catholics are not ‘warm and fuzzy’ but often very cold.” This coming from my own sister who converted to Catholicism for her husband and daughters! In any event, this completely soured me on pursuing my conversion. I just took that to mean that maybe Jesus wants me to stay true to my roots of Protestantism. After all, I did not want to be a part of a church that was cold and clinical. I still can’t believe how they reacted – or didn’t. Even my sponsor still can’t get over it. They treated her the same way – did not reach out to her at all.

Anyway, I am not E-mailing you to complain to you. It’s not your fault. It will be 3 years this June 18th. I can scarcely believe that. The pain is still so deep and unrelenting. Still, I, all of the sudden, just started to tune into EWTN Radio again after all this time. I hear so many nice people that seem so genuine in their Catholic faith. I can hardly believe the vast difference between my local Catholic church here in Anderson, Indiana and the people I hear on the radio. It almost makes me want to resume my conversion again.

But one problem…….I know that I know that I do not want to go back to that church to do it. I was hurt much too deeply. Do you have any advice since I will never go back to that church?

I don’t mean to put you on the spot. I E-mailed you to complement your Good Friday program, but any advice would be most welcome.

Thank you,
Kristina
