PRTGSw2K Posted August 26, 2012 Share Posted August 26, 2012 I grew up as a Catholic. My family was very involved in the church, went every Sunday, taught CCD, etc. I never truly felt connected though, so I ended up leaving the church and became a non-practicing Catholic. FF a few years and I start to feel God calling me back. So we decide to try a friends non-denominational Christian church. We love it, the kids love it, I can feel His presence and we're happy. Recently, I've been feeling Him pull me back to the RCC. I tried attending mass with my kids and it was a disaster. They were both squirmy, and DD especially would not stay still or be quiet. It was distracting to others and I wasn't able to pay any attention b/c of her. I ended up leaving as the priest was saying the homily. (DH wasn't with me today). My kids love our church, are happy there, and don't know anything else. How can I make this transition easier? I was so frustrated and upset when we left mass today. I'm also scared that they will lose their close relationship they now have with God and feel like I did as a child. Sorry about the ramblings. My emotions are a mess right now and I just need some gentle advice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
