Why I am Catholic

By Aaron S. Robertson

Several weeks back, in an adult formation program I'm currently participating in at my parish (my church), we were asked to write down three sentences explaining why we're Catholic. I joked that, being the good student I am, and wanting to go for an A+, I came up with four sentences.

But in all seriousness, it's been an amazing, uplifting, joyful journey that I've been blessed to be on over the last year or so, since December 2021. I tell God all the time that human language can never fully encapsulate what I'm feeling and experiencing. Here's what I said as to why I am Catholic:
I am Catholic because my faith has caused me to have experiences that cannot be explained by anything in the natural, physical world. I am Catholic because I have experienced no greater joy, love, beauty, and truth outside of my faith. I am Catholic because I know we each have our own special role to play in God's plan. I am Catholic because I was personally called by God to be.
