He went through so very much for us. In the last 10 years, Catholicism has slowly been calling me.

Besides being better equipped to deal with converts, they would have a deeper appreciation of the faith in which they were formed. Every era tries to create a new religion, something more befitting the age, but new religions are only suited to what is new.

And what is new is soon old. Chesterton argues that the Catholic Church has all the freshness of a new religion, but it also has the richness of an old religion. It is a religion that binds men to their morality even when they are not in the mood to be moral. The Church often has to go against the grain of the world.
