So I actually have a bunch of these. You can see the other master post here: X

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship
Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.
Questions regarding Catholicism and Christianity under the cut! I’d love if some Catholics could help me out!
I have been brought up Protestant all my life. I have tons of Catholic cousins, but they live out of the country and I’m never in too much contact with them. I know virtually nothing about Catholicism except for my new found knowledge (studying books and such) and Protestant bias. God has been really working in my life and He has really built me up from where I was a couple weeks ago. It is to my understanding that God is leading me toward the Catholic Church. Never have I considered this until now. With some research, I know I have to go through the RCIA process. I have no issue with finding a church in my area, my problem is my family. All my immediate family is Protestant to the core with the obvious Catholic bias and telling them about my interest and calling to the Catholic faith would be a HUGE step. I don’t have my license yet, but even if I did, I would probably still have to tell my parents where I was going. I’m kind of clueless on what to do. If someone could reply or message me on here, that would be great. I’m also doing as much as I can to study the Catholic faith. I listen to EWTN radio on an almost regular basis, I’m reading (when I have time) “Catholicism for Dummies” and I wanted to know if you guys could recommend videos, books, radio stations, music, anything that could be helpful in understanding and introduction to the Catholic Church. Thank you very much, God bless.
I’m so sorry this is such a late response but here it is!
I am so happy to hear you are where you are!
As a convert myself, me & my fiance (at the time, now husband) totally understand having unsupportive/anti-Catholic family/friends. We were alone in this and are the only Catholics in our family still. Keep with it! The truth is important! My search for the truth, as I know will be the same for you, will lead you to the Catholic Church! For me, everything kept making more & more sense, I learned new things that totally made sense and finally understood the foundation for what I already learned to be true. The amazing thing about the church is since it was the first there is an incredibly rich history of deep and wise truth. We have many, many, many resources so there’s an answer to all of your questions! In my conversion journey I listened to iCatholic radio a lot on my phone and now I listen to Relevent radio.
I wish you luck in finding a church to start the RCIA process!
Until then here are all the links I can think of to help you on your journey
and here’s my personal apologetics playlist on youtube!
Also, amazing apologetics/awesome speakers to look out for:
Scott Hahn - Specializes in the bible especially old testament, The Eucharist, the mass, Mary (his books Rome Sweet Home and The Lamb’s supper were instrumental in my husband’s conversion/clarifying what the Church was) Hahn’s conversion story
Peter Kreeft - AWESOME, easy to understand, light-hearted apologist|
Fr. Robert Barron http://www.wordonfire.org/
Father Mike Schmitz one of the best explanations of theology of the body
Patrick Madrid: his conversion story
Trent Horn a great pro life apologist
Chris Stefanic - has a great book on moral relativism, deals in the new evangelization/ chasity.
Jason & Crystalina Evert - specializes in chastity/theology of the body
Christopher West - specializes in theology of the body.

GIVE ME SIX DOZEN CHILDRENSBOOKS ABOUT THESE THREE
Just…. so many things wrong with this post. I don’t even know where to start. But as a sampler:
- the number of these “coat hanger abortions” is blown out of proportion with regularity by abortion advocates- Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist, admitted to making up statistics of deaths by back-alley abortions.
- In fact the number of deaths by illegal abortions (as reported by the Centers for Disease Control) in 1972, the year before abortion was legalized, was only 39.
- Former Planned Parenthood president Mary Calderone stated in 1960, “The conference estimated that 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.”(emphasis mine) (sources cited here)
- Unborn babies are not “like the [cells] that come off your feet and body.” Those dead skin cells will never be anything other than dead skin cells. Unborn babies are living, growing human beings. Your dead skin cells still carry your DNA. Unborn babies have a completely different DNA, their own organs (otherwise the mother would, for a time, have two brains, four lungs, two hearts, etc.).
- "…or save a woman who might end up curing a life-threatening disease?" Yeah, like the female who is growing inside her mother’s womb?
Stop the spread of lies about abortion. Stop painting it as some great achievement for women. Stop pretending that cutting off the uniquely feminine ability to carry and nourish a brand-new life is pro-woman.
