Angela, I just—
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
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
