Thank you for writing.
Although I have done nothing but attend mass faithfully, the Catholic priests and prelates continue to push me away. They do not even answer my emails. One priest – my own pastor – told me that he had no ability to learn to appreciate my path even “somewhat.”
Although my connection to Jesus remains, I have left the Catholic Church due to their unwillingness to accept me.
If I must deny my very essence to be part of the Catholic Church, I do not belong there. It is an unhealthy environment.
