Thank you so much for your reply! Yesterday I felt like I was clinging to my last thread of hope, and today I feel as if a door has been opened wide for me to step through. I plan to spend time every day studying your web site… And I will take your advice and pray the Rosary daily.
I am so thankful that I happened to hear Brother Michael Dimond on Coast to Coast A.M. I normally turn the radio on at night because it helps me sleep, but the night of Brother Dimond's interview I didn't sleep a wink. As I said in my first email, I have felt drawn to the Catholic Church for most of my life, but never made the step towards conversion. One reason for this reluctance was the erosion of the tradition of the Church in Rome, which was evident even to someone with very little knowledge of the Catholic Doctrine. I was amazed to hear that some of the things that made it impossible for me to believe in the Catholic Church (what I thought was the Catholic Church, rather) are the very same things that make this Vatican II church a fraud. Perhaps I'm flattering myself, or making excuses for my procrastination, but I'd like to think that Jesus was keeping me safe from the false church in Rome by keeping doubt alive in my mind. I prayed to have my doubts removed, but they persisted. Listening to Brother Dimond, I knew in my heart that he was speaking the truth. I no longer doubt the true Church, but I still have doubts about myself. With prayer and time I believe I can overcome this, and ask God to accept me into his Church.
I apologize for rambling on like this. I'm just filled with excitement about this new turn of events, and so thankful that you've helped me find my way to the right path. Now I will set my mind towards following that path and honoring God and all that is His.
Thank you so much!
