    Hello! Thank you so much for verbalizing what so many of us feel, and don’t worry- this doesn’t make you a terrible Catholic at all! I know that for so long, I have found it so hard to relate to Mary, and even just to approach her in prayer. You hit on a core problem that I am sure many of us encounter in our growth in being Catholic.

    When I read your question, I began to ask myself the same thing. I can honestly say it has only been about a year since I have been able to be comfortable going to Mary and actually seeing her as someone I can relate to.

    Dear Ashleigh,
    First of all don’t beat yourself up for a lack of courage. While it is a good thing to be ready to stand up for the Lord at all times, the truth is these people, who are so readily attacking you, would often not be receptive to anything you’d say. I’m someone who is always ready for an argument (and often makes it worse that way), and I’ve found that a lot of people won’t even listen or let you speak. If it’s on social media, you can bring out any article or proof that they’re wrong, but they’ll only read what they want to read.
