Being Catholic Becoming Faithful

I have had a lifetime of faith … or what I thought was faith. Now that I am in my post-retirement years, I have concluded that I was being Catholic, but religion is not faith. It is something much deeper and personal. For me, my Catholic religion has neglected the development of my faith and focused on being Catholic: following rules and performing rituals.

Now I am trying to focus on faith. I find that a process of becoming because it is impacted by language, cosmology, what I was taught about God, the Bible, and Jesus. Put this all in the historical context of Christianity and there is much to be sorted out. This is what my book attempts to do. I move from the practice of being catholic to becoming faithful to the Gospel message of jesus.

While I have written this from a Catholic perspective, there is much to ponder by anyone of faith in any religion.
