Catholic atheist dating
As we were talking, Dan asked about the cross around my neck.I knew wearing a cross on a first date was going to raise an eyebrow, but I quickly explained I’m not a religious freak and it was gift from my mother.
You have to be able to answer the questions of why we do what we do. One of the biggest complaints of our faith from our non-Catholic Christian brothers and sisters is that Catholics don’t have a personal relationship with Christ, they don’t know Him or His word. We are each on our own journey down an individual path towards holiness.Pray for your loved one to hear God’s call and then have the will to respond with courage when he is called.Being called to the Faith isn’t something that you can will upon someone else. Dating a non-Catholic can spur you to a deeper understanding of your faith and help you to see what the aspects in which you need to study or grow. Our friendships survived a childhood of sleepover shenanigans, hanging out at the mall, trick-or-treating together, and dating various friends without ever actually being romantically involved. Faith was never an issue while dating because although Bob was Catholic and I was a non-denominational Protestant, he was a sort-of-almost-lapsed Catholic. I went to public school with our friend, who lived a few doors down from Bob.
