This is a support thread for mothers who are attempting to accept, understand, and live according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. It was formerly the "traditional Catholic" thread. "Simply Catholicism" is a term from Cardinal George (former president of the USCCB), used to try to get away from Liberal/Conservative political terms, because the Church is not about politics. It is about faith. We are not some subset of Catholicism (though some may view us as such), but "simply" those who embrace Catholicism in its entirety.
Happy New Year, Catholic Mamas!
I am so excited about Advent this year with my oldest now 3 and really beginning to grasp some of the great theological ideas I am telling her about. I find myself telling her every day about things she couldn't possibly fully understand yet, but she tries, and she's putting things together and asking amazing questions. Blessed Advent to you all!
