Why I am a Catholic
#1
With your permission could I set up this thread to allow anyone to express their reasons why they are Catholic, or indeed why they remain Catholic all their lives in a world that does its best to destroy the Catholic faith. If comments are kept reasonably short, it will provide easy reading for any looking for a good enough reason to become Catholic or remain Catholic if their faith is faltering.

For me it was easy becoming Catholic. I was born into Catholicism and learned my faith under the Holy Ghost Fathers from the green 'Penny Catechism.' By the age of 12 I understood the essentials of the Catholic faith, that a personal God exists, that He is a Trinity, that Christ died to save us from Lucifer, a leading angel who rejected God, and that He founded the Catholic Church and set up its institution. Now, in my 60s, it still suffices as an explanation for everything. In its simplicity it explains the origin of everything. It It has a history going back to the very beginning of the world. It explains all of human behaviour, both good and evil. It explains all the questions, who am I, what am I, where did I come from, where am I going. It gives purpose to all the tears of life and provides the one ingredient I have found to be the most precious, hope, hope in so many things but mostly that there is another life to be lived where there is nothing but love and joy, and peace with our loved ones living and dead.
