Linking up with Michaela at California to Korea for Three Reasons I Love Catholicism.
I just love, love, love this Link-up idea. Love it! Wish I had thought of it myself!
Here are my top three reasons on Why I Love Catholicism.
It's Universal. I can go to Catholic Mass anywhere, and while the "flavor" may change, the Mass itself..the readings, the prayers remain the same. I love that there is one central Creed and the doctrines remain the same.
Catholicism is not wishy-washy. And, it's not for the faint of heart. While the practices may change, the doctrines and dogmas WILL NEVER change. They've basically been the same, since, oh, the time of Christ. They don't change with the times, they don't change with the culture, etc. Catholicism does not bow to peer pressure. Right now, it's pretty counter-cultural...and I love being counter-cultural. It's my rebellious streak coming out.
Her teaching on contraception. No seriously...I really do love this. Honestly, it just makes so much sense. And, hormonal contraception is really bad for you...like really, really bad. It just doesn't make sense to take a pill or something to make your body NOT work the way it's supposed to. Medicine should be to make sick people better....not prevent the body of a well person from working. People talk about "getting fixed"..but really, sterilization is actually "getting broken"...literally. Plus, I love the way Catholicism views children as a blessing. And, really all the zero-population growth people are going to contracept themselves into oblivion and the Catholics (and other faith denominations) who have large families will soon take over the world. Bwhaaahhhaahahahahahaha
Now, go see the more articulate Catholic bloggers.
