So it was within those Sunday school classes, that I began to feel the stirrings of the Spirit again but still did not recognize it for what it was. I actually found myself defending various misconceptions with regards to the Catholic faith when someone in class would erroneously make a comment that I knew to be wrong.
Usually the biggest topic of misconception was what they perceived to be worship of Mary. I remember my husband quoting a Methodist minister friend of his saying “Catholics revere Mary too much and Protestants do not revere her enough”. Now that I am Catholic, I do not think we revere her too much but it is difficult to explain to those of other faiths.
