I came across Honestly Catholic’s blog when she liked one of my posts (thank you, WordPress blog network!). I’ll admit, it was curiosity that made me click on the title–with my medical background, I was familiar with the term, but had never heard of anyone who actually had it.
What I found was a Catholic woman’s sincere struggle to be obedient to the teachings of the Church, as dictated by her very informed conscience. The dynamism of her story reaffirms my conviction that blind obedience is never really what the Church expects or demands of us. Rather, She encourages us to strive to live lives that glorify God in everything–in our thoughts, in our relationships, in our careers, in our bodies.
And when we make the effort to search, to understand, then to follow these teachings, we are rewarded with a richer, deeper relationship with Him.
Honestly Catholic, thank you for sharing your story.
