    Hi,

    I am Catholic! I feel that the new responses were an unnecessary change Tony, they caught my family by surprise as we do not go to church ever Sunday. Would be interested in learning more about the topics mentioned :hGina

    I am so happy to have some Catholic friends on MWO and I was really afraid of changing the responsed in the Mass too, but for some reason, I really like the changes. I still mess up a lot, but I think the changes are good, for some reason. Thanks for posting here. Not many of us do that!

    I am new here, but Catholic too. I am trying to offer each time i battle the urge up for some family members that are suffering due to alcohol. Offering it up helps me give the struggle some meaning. I am only on day 4, so very much a newbie. Just saw this thread and thought i would say hello.

    Yogamom, it's nice to see you here. Congratulations on your 4 AF days!! I am a practicing Catholic and I am a true believer in the power of my faith, although there are a number of Catholic traditions I don't agree with. My mother is extremely devout....very active in the church, still, at the age of 85, and goes to daily Mass. She used to tell me when I was struggling with ANYTHING...."offer it up," and I would get so annoyed with her, as I didn't understand what she meant. "Offering it up" never gave me any peace or any feeling that it was doing anybody any good. However, now that you explain it....it DOES have meaning. Thank you! I believe that God has a plan for me, and it feels good to have that peace, after I shunned the church for more than 30 years. Even more so....now that you mention your family members. All 3 of my mom's sisters were alcoholics. She watched her favorite sister die from it....a bleeding ulcer in her esophagus. Her other sister died of cancer but I just know, I just know, it was due to the deadly and destructive duo of vodka and cigarettes. Her youngest sister finally got sober after putting her family, my mom, and their 5 siblings, through hell for 30 years. Not even 3 DUIs, a terrible AL-induced accident and subsequent brain injury could make her stop drinking. It was her faith, rehab and AA that has helped her stay sober for 4 years. It was my mom's Catholic faith that helped her survive all of that, as well as her oppressive marriage of 57 years to my father. Please keep posting, and reading. Check out the Newbies Nest.....lost of support there. And when you need support, check out The Toolbox Thread in the General Discussion Forum.

    If you need any help navigating the MWO system, forums, etc., please just click on my name and send me a PM (Private Message). Also, if the little ball next to someone's name is lit up, that means that person is online.

    Rusty....the Catholic church has changed......that old fashion Catholic religion has changed ! My church has taken on some Protestant help and with that the Catholic church has moved forward ! All the religions are getting to together and accomplishing a lot in the community........they have gotten together with the HOPE Program and gone down to places like Alabama and Mississippi and rebuilt homes. We have a mass once a month with are brothers of different faiths gather...changing churches every month ........" Their will be some in the fields ......one will be taken....the other will be left behind." Thier is nowhere where it say what religion that will be ! God be with you ! Tony

    Thank you Rusty. Your family sounds like mine except in my family it was mostly the men who are drunks and the ladies hold it all together. My dad was a daily Mass guy too and a teetotaler. But he was always kind to his brothers that were alcoholics. And even to the town drunks. I know he is up there pulling for me. IAD, I am not sure what you are talking about but you seem very excited about your faith which is great.
