You Are Not Alone: The Benefits of Being a Single Catholic Woman
To be a single Catholic woman in postmodern America is to face challenges, to embrace these challenges, and to succeed in love and in life. In this new century, the definition of what it is to be a single woman has changed from being a lonely spinster to being a fabulous, self-confident achiever. Role models such as the ladies on Sex and the City, while not necessarily living pious lifestyles, do enjoy empowered, independent lives. Yet these modern women still face ancient challenges- finding the right mate, entering marriage, and having a family.
A single Catholic woman faces these challenges along with everyone else, but it can sometimes seem that she faces more challenges than the rest. How does she balance being a single modern woman and a single Catholic woman? Yet the single Catholic woman has a support system that sets her apart from the rest. There are many benefits to being a single Catholic woman.
The Single Catholic Woman Has a Support Group
As a Catholic, no woman is ever truly “single”. She has the love and support of the Lord, of Jesus Christ, her parish community, and the entire Catholic community. At her parish she can find guidance, friendship, and encouragement. Many parishes have organizations for young single adults, where she can share her experiences with others and discuss the trials of dating. She might even meet a potential mate through such an organization. The catholic community serves as a family for the single Catholic woman, offering support, answering questions, and guiding her along her journey to find love.
The Single Catholic Woman Has God’s Own Version of “The Rules”
No need to listen to trashy magazines that presume to tell a woman how to snag a man. The Lord Himself offers His own advice when it comes to finding love, and the single Catholic woman can look to the Bible for lessons and tips on relationships. The Bible tells us how to know when we have found true love:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” I Corinthians 13:4-8a
The Single Catholic Woman Has Had Lifelong Education
Along with the Bible, a single Catholic woman has had a lifetime of education regarding the concepts of love, commitment, and family. Lessons all the way back in Sunday school taught the value of family and love in stories such as that of Sarah and Abraham, of Mary Magdalene, and all of the love that Jesus Christ showed us, his brothers and sisters, the children of God.
The single Catholic woman has been raised by the examples set by the Church–her own family and those in her community give her examples of what it is to be a happy Catholic family.
The Single Catholic Woman Knows What She Wants
Thanks to all of this support from her community, from her family, from the Bible, and from Jesus Christ, a single Catholic woman knows what she wants. She will not compromise her faith or her dreams. She sticks to her resolve and will one day experience the sacrament of marriage and enter into a new stage of love in her life.
