VERICAST with Tim Haines

Can I just cry?
What? You three people who actually read this are going to be surprised? I weep over everything about God! You guys know that.

You see, I've only been a Catholic for a few years and they have been hard years. My husband is a travel nurse (yes, I am writing this in case someone outside my family might read this someday) and every three to six months we are back on the road to another city. I have been to a lot of Catholic parishes in the last five years. And most of them are not super conservative-friendly. 

But I knew that from the beginning.

My husband and my RCIA directors didn't even seem to want us in Catholicism. We were too conservative. They were sweet people, but RCIA seemed more like a pro-Democrat, de-conservative program. We were told we were of the devil for watching FOX news and the focus many Tuesday nights was on the plight of the illegal immigrants or how the church needed to be ecumenical or some other Catholic-lite subject. 

In most Catholic parishes the Protestant converts stick out and we find each other like magnets. We seem to be the only people who love what Catholicism teaches! Of course I'm exaggerating, because the Sunday masses are packed. But when you talk about Catholicism, Catholics would rather talk about football.

We converts whisper to ourselves about pro-life issues and how we love Michael Voris (shhhh, that really ticks off a lot of Catholics and we don't know why...) We giggle with love for the bishops and the priests and all the great traditions, as we are being eyed with suspicion by the Catholics who are fearing a former-Protestant takeover.

So when some angel posted Vericast on my Facebook wall, I just clicked without thinking. And I wept. Somebody actually loves the Catholic Church and is willing to say it aloud. Now I am totally going to hide behind Tim Haines and use him for my voice and occasionally stick my head out and point my finger at all you who dislike Catholicism and shake my head in agreement saying,"yeah"and then jump back behind Mr. Haines. 

He's a cradle Catholic and now nobody can say I just don't know what I am talking about, since I haven't been a Catholic all my life like they have. 

With watching Michael Voris and Tim Haines and Wilson O. and Scott Hahn and Marcus Grodi and Dave Armstrong and Patrick Madrid and Peter Kreeft and Father Mitch Pacwa one day I will be lethal.... 

For right now, I am just weeping and thanking God for Catholics who love being Catholic--like Mr. Haines.
