I would like to extend to you a little advice. Don't ever be afraid of documents, scriptures, encyclicals or other materials of the Catholic Church.
If they look complicated (and they often do to me), then simply read over the materials and enjoy what you can glean from them. Even if you take away only one short sentence that helps you grow in your Faith, your reading time has been well spent. Well done.
There is no need to have fears about what you don't understand. Little by little, the Lord will open these doors for you and in the right time.
This blog's mission is simple--to encourage moms who are married to non-Catholics and raising their children in the Faith. If you know a mom who needs a little encouragement in continuing her efforts, I would be delighted if you would share Kathleen's Catholic with her. Thank you!
