@scorch look into classical theism and then read aquinas

2018-06-19 01:59:10 UTC  

Read CS Lewis as well

2018-06-19 02:53:58 UTC  

@Broseph just listened to bits and pieces, good shit

2018-06-19 03:11:47 UTC  

Beginning sucked. I should’ve mentioned that. I’m gonna clip the last 20 or so minutes, maybe any better parts

2018-06-19 03:43:33 UTC  

30 minutes in was pretty good

are you asking us for pirated copy of a christian book

2018-06-20 18:01:48 UTC  

@scorch for me it began in prayer and chiefly in praying of the most holy rosary of our blessed mother

2018-06-20 18:02:05 UTC  

i started praying when i did not believe there was a god listening

2018-06-20 18:02:46 UTC  

at first it was little more than a mantra to me and then i noticed some therapeutic effects and of course skeptically dismissed that as psychological entirely

2018-06-20 18:03:43 UTC  

but then i started to learn to pray the words with my mouth while meditating on the mysteries and i kept up this practice and i can only say my mindset changed as I reflected daily on the mysteries of the faith especially on the sorrowful mysteries, the passions of jesus christ our lord

2018-06-20 18:04:31 UTC  

living for 10 years as an atheist i had picked up a lot of sinful habits that i didn't consider sinful or in any way wrong and they began to feel injurious to engage in, that might've been the first sign

2018-06-20 18:05:05 UTC  

I went down the rabbit hole of reading the entire catechism of the catholic church and just praying a lot to god to show me more, the nature of faith, hope and charity, and to lead me closer to his presence in the blessed sacrament

2018-06-20 18:06:21 UTC  

I was dealing with a really terrible anxiety disorder and didn't even want to leave my house let alone go into a church but I worked up the courage to do so after suffering from years of the damage left after a nervous breakdown I had

2018-06-20 18:07:49 UTC  

I didn't much like the first mass I went to in terms of the setting and arrangements and the priest's homily but I absolutely felt something there and it was life changing to me, such that even with what I thought were lame/boring elements, I saw this greater meaning and wanted to return... however I couldn't work up the courage to talk to that priest about my experiences over the last year

2018-06-20 18:08:37 UTC  

on a whim I went to a different parish a couple sundays later after missing a couple masses and the priest's homily there spoke directly to my experience as he touched on atheism and skepticism

2018-06-20 18:09:44 UTC  

by the end of that mass I remember I felt like I was going to faint my knees were wobbling, but completely uncharacteristic of me I went straight up to the priest and just told him my life story in about 90 seconds, I don't know how I found the words and put them together in so short a time but I did

2018-06-20 18:11:07 UTC  

I guess I tell the story here to drive at the point that the holy spirit works through us, god has been seeking us before we were in our mother's womb, he knew us even then... we have to open our hearts to his grace. the church's teaching on faith and reason also helped me to understand this is not just a blind leap of faith

2018-06-20 18:11:48 UTC  

my entire worldview changed and I still don't exactly understand what happened but I've been healed in many ways from what was ailing me and became a completely transformed person and I absolutely believe in god again

2018-06-20 18:16:19 UTC  

it's cliche to say but you really do have to open your heart and ask god for his grace

2018-06-20 18:16:34 UTC  

read the catechism section on prayer the whole book is free online and on phone

2018-06-20 18:16:55 UTC  

also there's a series on youtube called becoming catholic that was helpful to me

2018-06-20 18:18:14 UTC
