Curious Catholic QUESTION from Robert Garza March 9, 2000 Why have many Catholics started to convert to Charismatic Christian churches? Also, Why do ex-catholics and current christians of other denominations say they don't feel the holy spirit in our Catholic church? How can we start educating our faithful to defend the faith by using the bible? Why can't parishoners give testimony to what Jesus has done in their lives? How can I get many of my fallen-away Catholic friends and relatives back to our Catholic faith? Please respond: Curious Catholic in Washington State
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on March 17, 2000 Dear Mr. Garza:
The reasons why people leave the Catholic Church is usually over a sex issue, or it is because they never understood what Catholicism is about, or because they are lazy and want entertained.
How to bring them back and all your other questions, the answer is: pray, preach the word in season and out, live the example, pray, encourage, teach, admonish, correct, rebuke, nurture, pray.
The answer is prayer.
