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

St. Augustine: “Judaism, since Christ, is a corruption; indeed, Judas Iscariot is the image of the Jewish people: their understanding of Scripture is carnal; they bear the guilt for the death of the Savior, for through their fathers they have killed Christ. The Jews held Him; the Jews insulted Him; the Jews bound Him; they crowned Him with thorns; they scourged Him; they hanged Him upon a tree.” "The Jews... are undoubtedly our enemies... Long before the coming of the Savior, Judaism had progressively become corrupt... after the revelation of Christ, it fell completely under Satan's inspiration; formerly the chosen children of God, they became the sons of the devil... The true image of the Hebrew is Judas Iscariot, who sells the Lord for silver."

Pope Saint Gregory VII: “We exhort your Royal Majesty [King Alfonse VI of Castile], not to further tolerate, that the Jews rule Christians and have power over them. For to allow that Christians are subordinated to Jews and are delivered to their whims, means to oppress the Church of God, means to revile Christ himself.”

St. John Chrysostom: “How dare Christians have the slightest intercourse with Jews! They are lustful, rapacious, greedy, perfidious bandits: pests of the universe! Their synagogue is a house of prostitution, the domicile of the devil, as is the soul of the Jew. As a matter of fact, Jews worship the devil; their religion is a disease, their synagogue an abyss of perdition."

St. Ambrose: “The Jews are the most worthless of all men. They are lecherous, greedy, rapacious. They are perfidious murderers of Christ. They worship the Devil. Their religion is a sickness. The Jews are the odious assassins of Christ and for killing God there is no expiation possible, no indulgence or pardon. Christians may never cease vengeance, and the Jew must live in servitude forever. God always hated the Jews. It is essential that all Christians hate them.”
