No worries, anon! (ETA: This ended up not making quite as much sense as I wanted it to because I’m exhausted and shouldn’t be thinking about stuff like this when I’m so tired.)
I choose to be Catholic because I believe that Catholicism has the fullness of Christ’s Truth. Protestantism has elements of the Truth, but all of the Protestant denominations follow various teachings that are either only partially true or completely false.
I believe that Catholicism, when practiced fully with frequent reception of the sacraments, allows one to have the most complete relationship with Christ that can be achieved while on earth. (Can you get more intimate than the Eucharist???!)
I believe that Catholicism offers the most beauty of anything else on earth. I’m not just talking about the architecture and statues and icons, though those are definitely awesome. The Catholic understanding of Sacred Scripture, of God, and of man far surpass any other understandings of Sacred Scripture, God, or man. They are the most complete, comprehensive, and beautiful teachings that you could hope to find anywhere.
Some more reasons that shouldn’t need an explanation
- The saints. Seriously. What’s better than knowing that you have thousands upon thousands of friends praying for you each and every day?
- Mary. ‘Nuff said.
- Those nuns tho.
- Catholic prayers. The Mass. The Rosary. The Divine Office. Total Consecration. Divine Mercy Chaplet. Novenas. I could go on.
- Pilgrimages. We have some of the coolest tourist sites on earth.
- Catholic parties. For real. There ain’t no party like a Catholic party ‘cause a Catholic party don’t stop.
