I have a nondenominational friend who I know would make a great Catholic. She loves coming to mass with me and always listens when I talk about my faith. But whenever I ask her if she thinks she could belong to this church, she says that Catholicism seems too hard or complex. What should I tell her?

fatherangel:

Hello,

I would acknowledge that Catholicism is hard, and it is also complex. There are always things to learn, and ways to grow, as a Catholic. But also remind her that the best things in life that are worth achieving, are achieved with effort, study, and practice. Even something as apparently simple as being a good athlete is hard and complex, in one sense.

At the same time, assure her that there is an awesome simplicity to Catholic life. In other words, the peace and joy that comes from being a Catholic is not hard, nor complex, to obtain. It is based on the simple maxim that Christ has died, risen, and will come again, and in the meantime, He loves and shelters us in His Church.

Even a Catholic who does not yet grasp all of the doctrines and traditions of the Church can still have a simple, and a beautiful, friendship with Christ. She and you are in my prayers for a fruitful Holy Week and joyful Easter. God bless and take care! Fr. Angel

Hello, hope all is well with you and your health is better. I've done some research in order to avoid asking you too many question, but could not find a satisfactory answer. Are Coptics part of the Roman Catholic Church? From what I am aware of and my understanding there are two sorts of Coptics: Christian and Catholic. Yet, are Coptic Catholics truly Catholics? This is the part I got confused. Don't they have their own pope? Yet, I read the Catholic Church accepts Coptic Catholics. ?_?

fatherangel:

Hello, 

The head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt is called Pope Tawadros, because the Coptic Orthodox have the tradition of giving their patriarch that title, which simply means “father.” Like other Orthodox patriarchs, Tawadros does not maintain communion with Pope Francis, nor does he recognize the infallibility of the Roman pope or the supreme authority or primacy of Pope Francis’ office.

The patriarch of the Coptic Catholic Church resides in Cairo, and has full communion with Pope Francis. Therefore, yes, the Coptic Catholics are definitely, and truly, Catholic.

God bless and take care! Fr. Angel

oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.

watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.

this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!

guess what America should do
