Can I sponsor an immigrant that is a non-family member? I would like to sponsor an immigrant who is a non-family member. How do I get the paperwork to fill this out?
Ask yourself some questions
Questioning and doubt are all part of 's a good thing to do.I've been friends with many priests and religious and most, if not all, have had and continue to have periods of doubt regarding their life choice.
There is a separation between one's faith and the Catholic faith is pretty solid.I know what I believe and I know why I believe her or not I would want to work for the Catholic church is another question is true of all organized religions because working for a religious isn't much different than working for a secular corporation except your board meetings will open with a prayer and the CEO can claim he's getting his instructions from the Holy r than that, the politics and human failings are pretty much the same.
So I ask things like - I know what I believe, but do I want to be part of the formal structure?How can I make that work for me?Will I still be able to do the good I believe I'm being called to do?Will I be able to do more good if I'm not part of the formal structure?Where will I have the most freedom?What will my obligations be both within and without the org and where will I be best able to meet those obligations?
The bottom line is that if you believe you are being called to do God's work, then you will do God's work whether you're in a religious order or 's a question of where will you be the most effective and content.
