I am a revert to the Catholic Church. I was baptized at age 9 but then quickly acquired great fear of hell. When I was confirmed at age 15, I really wanted the gifts of the Spirit and did all requirements for the sacrament, but my heroes were hard rock guitar players, not saints. With social awkwardness of Aspergers, my academic years were difficult, and I even attempted suicide. But Mother Mary spared me, and I found my priceless worth in God. I also found the issue of THE CANON and that without the Bishops of the Catholic Church in the late 300s and early 400s, there is no way to know what books belong in the Bible. And hence, the Church must know what the Bible means! I DON'T HAVE TO DERIVE THE GOSPEL MYSELF, the CHURCH DOES! This knowledge very much relieved me of much spiritual suffering and uncertainty. When I found the stability and love of Catholicism, my life was changed forever.
