Thanks for your interest in the Church. There are several ways we can help.
You can check out my Favorites page. It has some great commentary and encouragement . . . yeah, by me : )
We also have a specific section on our FAQ page, that addresses your question:
How do I become Catholic and related questions.
Search around and find a pastor or priest from a local Catholic parish who is known for his faithfulness to the Church. Call the parish and make an appointment to talk to the pastor/priest about becoming a Catholic.
What you have described in your e-mail is definitely a calling from the Holy Spirit. I'm not saying this because I'm a Catholic, but because we have received similar e-mails from questioners saying similar things.
That said, keep in mind what my colleague Eric has said in various replies:
|The right reason to become Catholic is not because Catholicism lines up with your personal beliefs but because the Catholic Church is the truth-telling Church.
In other words, as a Catholic you should believe that your beliefs should align with Catholicism, and not the other way around.
You will be asked, as a convert, to accept whatever the Catholic Church teaches to be revealed by God — now and in the future, known and unknown. You should choose the Church because She tells the truth and always will, not because what She teaches agrees with your opinions.
I will keep your spiritual journey in my prayers.
Hope this helps,
