Tuesday Rosary

It's sad doing the rosary on Tuesday and Friday, because the Sorrowful mysteries are really hard for me. I have a rather vivid imagination, and to imagine a human being going through the horrible things Christ went through just breaks my heart.

Hello
Not trying to be funny but.......................how can so many Muslims be so wrong?

Agnostic is difficult ; Atheist easy.
Believing...........in any organised religion, impossible.

Keep on bloggin'

In a way, I'm glad it's difficult for you, because it means that you have drawn near to the cross, you have experienced (in a minute way) some of the suffering of Christ. The key though is, that that's not where the story ends...the crucifixion would make no sense without the resurrection. Don't forget why He went through those things, it was for love of you, and for love of me, and all our brothers and sisters. So, perhaps you could pray that God help you move from sorrow at the attrocity of it, to deep gratitude for the generosity of this self-giving act.

Seekeroftheway , in the fashion that so typifies the evangelist, comments on a tiny point but misses the major one. I happen to be a committed atheist.

Neither of you have answered my question......the major point..............how can so many muslims be wrong? Whose lord is it anyway?

Question your faith........................or it may make you do things you will later regret.

That is a very good question. Whose God is right? Is there even a God?

To think that anyone could answer that in a simple blog comment is to ask the impossible. But I will say this about my faith - at this point, it feels good to believe that there is a God. Do I know I have made the "right" choice? Not as much as I would like, but to know that I am making the right choice for me is enough for now.

The decision to convert to Catholicism was made with much thought and contemplation. However, I can totally see the other side of the coin as well.

I applaud you for taking time to read and commenting on a religious blog that contradicts your personal beliefs. I think open-mindedness is very much a virtue in all people.

ardlair, because most of them are uneducated and have not actually read the Koran, and don't know anything about the world other than what their Imams tell them.

The others just like the power their religion gives them. Then there are the ones that are MINOs (Muslim In Name Only), they don't count.

Question your religion, and you'll come back Christian. Really study your religion, and you'll come back Catholic. :)

Yes, the sorrowful mysteries are difficult. Standing at the foot of the cross with Mary and John we are forced to confront both the mercy and agony of Christ simultaneously.

Thank you for your blog. May God continue to bless you on your journey!

Muslims aren't wrong. And the Catholic church doesn't consider them to be wrong. We are all in God's hands and all will be well.
