Before I discovered Catholic Sites, I posted on secular sites and on one Protestant site. The moderator was open and loving but I felt I had to hide my Catholicism. When it slipped out I was immediately questioned. God had His own agenda and through the moderator, forgiveness and unity has begun. Of course they have decided to simply ignore my Catholicism and centre on my love of God!!
I wept when I was rejected yet again. I am a convert. My sister and I met the Lord when we were 16 and 17. She became a Protestant Missionary and i became a Catholic mother of nine. She prays for my salvation because she knows about my deep relationship with Mary. And so as people wrote to say, let’s overlook theology because I know you are a true Christian I wept. The tears still come because I know exactly how they feel about the Catholic Church.

Reaching out to Protestants
I am a Catholic.
A born again, Spirit filled, lover of Jesus
who expects to be
by Bible thumping Protestants.
Twice, I have misunderstood and been misunderstood; twice mutual forgiveness and healing has forged bonds of love here at Wordcasters. thanks to Marc’s fatherly peacekeeping.
I am a sister in Christ even though my culture and way or expression seem odd.
Perhaps in the Body you are the feet and mouths carrying the Good News and I am an ear. I might not look like I belong but trust me, although I look foreign I AM part of the same Body.
May the small acts of unity here reverberate throughout the entire Mystical Body of Christ.
My tears and pain are my silent prayer, whispered from the depths of my spirit as I choose to let the pain flow from me to the heart of Jesus. I cannot change people. Only He can open eyes. I yearn for the day the God reveals His Mother to our Protestant Brethren.
