you left out a letter in the header, making it unintentionally funny -- to me at least.

would COVERTED Catholics be those who became Catholic secretly (covertly)?    ;D

[i know you know how to spell convert, it was just a typo, and i don't ordinarily call people's attentions to their typos but this one made me laugh. no insult intended.]

believe me, i considered covert conversion in the early sixties but back then i doubt any priest would have assisted a 16 year-old  to enter the Church against the family's opposition.

i think a lot depends on your family, not your former faith, though that's certainly involved, too.  my parents were just mainline presbies but very anti-Catholic.  that made me suspicious early on because i observed Catholic neighbors who were very nice and did not seem to worship idols or the pope.

there are possibly nominal jews and muslims who wouldn't be too upset by a child's conversion; they wouldn't like it but they wouldn't disown or kill them.  but i may be wrong. 

anyway, protestant to Catholic is not generally easy for anyone, because of family and, often, friends.
Ha! Good one! Fixxed it.

But you're right, I will start another thread sometime about covert Catholics...... :sneaky:

i wonder how many coverts there are…  i was hiding k of c pamphlets about doctrine in my room the way other teenagers were hiding dirty books  :laughing:

i like to say i'm a cradle Catholic since i spent my first two weeks in a Catholic cradle, at St. Joseph's hospital. 

a friend who really is cradle Catholic and a few years older than i am says the sisters probably baptized me in secret.  i can see the logic of them doing that if they believed a baby's soul would be lost, as they would if they knew the parents were prots.  back then they really believed EENS.  so i may have been baptized twice as an infant, but, if so, the Catholics got there first.  i like the thought, though my parents would have been outraged.
