Ask a Catholic Convert

20


20 per hour - Virtual OK

Are you an atheist or agnostic interested in learning more about the world's oldest version of the largest religion? I'd love to chat.
Are you a "born-again" Christian who wants to understand Catholics and other "liturgical" faiths?
Are you a convert or cradle Catholic seeking deeper faith and meaning? I'd love to be on the journey with you.
Do you just have big questions you want a perspective on? Let's chat.

I chose Catholicism, I wasn't born into it. I believe it's the only truth, and that all other religions and ideologies have only a part of that truth, and not the glorious holistic truth of the church I chose. I believe in the saints, in Purgatory, that Mary is Queen of Heaven and remained a virgin her whole life, I believe in a whole host of extremely unpopular and frankly, odd things. I believe in the dignity of all human life, regardless of age, ability, or actions. I believe in one God, creator of all life - though he might have created that life through an evolutionary process. I believe the Bible is the truth, but contains many different truth-types - parables, poetry, prophecies, and historical accounts. And I believe that within the Sacraments and practices of the Church lie all of the needs of human kind. I believe in the consistency, historicity, and depth of the Catholic Church and I can confidently say - I would die for her, just as hundreds of thousands have been martyred over the last 2000 years.

NOTE: While I have many excellent rational arguments for faith and am primarily a rational person, this service is NOT a chance for debate. I am not interested in the kind of debate dictionary defined as a "formal argument." I am interested in questioning, sharing and considering ideas in a relaxed, personal atmosphere. This also means that I am gentle, non-judgemental, and I won't actively try to proselytize you - I personally believe it's God's responsibility to draw people to himself, and mine to live out my faith in the best way I can. If you are considering converting to the faith I will encourage you on your journey, but otherwise I'll just share what I believe, and answer your questions about it.

Training & Qualifications


I converted to Catholicism from being a mostly-conservative general protestant (Baptist, Pentecostal, Alliance etc.) who grew up in a family who genuinely followed the Prosperity Gospel. After abandoning that entirely while in University, but still believing in the God of the Bible, I went on a personal spiritual journey which landed me, at first unwillingly, on a Catholic journey. Now I am making huge life changes to be consistent with that journey.

Availability & Preferences


I have a calendar of availability to make it easy for you to book time with me. We can talk over Skype or Discord! If you are local, or passing through, we can meet in person.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Twyla Lapointe

I am a 30-something successful entrepreneur artist. I'm a full time professional photographer (10+ years) and now I specialize in corporate work, portraits and events mostly. After working through ...my own time management journey, I now teach time management. I am a fantastic researcher on the internet, and can find things others have trouble finding... I am known to be amazing at giving gifts to friends and family. My Catholic faith is very important to me, I converted from being an "assorted Protestant" and I am one of those annoying anti-modernist folks who insist that it's the true way, above all others. If you're interested in the Catholic faith I would be pleased to share. I travel in Canada 2-3x per year, and internationally once every 2 years on average. I love dogs and have been known to squeal when a weenie or other cute dog comes trotting along! show more
