What I love about the Catholic Church

I love that women in the Catholic Church have the choice to enter religious life. Not very many other religions have something like the sisterhood that Catholicism does. I feel empowered that I can be an unmarried woman without children and still have a place in society and the Church.

Favorite scripture passage
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God" (Matthew 5:9).
