Me too! And "Christ has died, Christ is Risen, Christ will come again." I'm not sure why, but I LOVE that.
Paulb3 - I am so sorry you came in touch with such an ignorant and mean-spirited (and clearly misguided theologically!) nun/person!
As with any such situations, it is sad that one person, who has made such a negative impression on you, has come to represent for you the entire faith.
And I want to point out that religion is really not something we are born into. Religion is something our parents - biological or adoptive - teach us to value, believe, and follow. Then, religion is a way for us to make sense of our relationship with God.
We are all born God's children, but we are not born "Catholic" or "Muslim" or "Buddhist". We may be born into a culture that's predominantly of a particular faith, but even culture is not inherent, but something taught and passed on from generation to generation.
Having said all that, I cannot imagine how it must have felt to be 13 and be told such an utterly horrible thing, and from someone who's supposed to be representing the love of God! Did the nun miss the part of the catechism class where they talk about Joseph - Jesus' adoptive father?
I am so sorry this happened, and even more sorry that it's turned you away from Catholicism.
Feel free to ask me about our experience with:
~~ Private Domestic Adoption
.....fall throughs w/ 4 bmoms May 2008 - March 2010
~~ Foster Care
.....Baby VV 9/28/09 - 7/28/10 RU w/ mom 9/3/10
.....inquired on many waiting kids in US foster care to no avail Summer 2009 - Fall 2010
~~ International adoption
.....attempted, withdrawn November 2010 - December 2011
~~ Open Embryo Adoption
.....attempted Nov 2011 & April 2012, no take-home baby
Thanks to anonymous embryo donation, we are finally a family of three!
