My sister is struggling with OCD, and obsesses about cleanliness with her kids. Do you have any suggestions on how I can help her?

I saw an extraordinary minister of holy communion come to give communion to a sick person at home. Some other people were there and the extraordinary minister offered Communion to them as well. Is this allowed?

How do I go about becoming Catholic? I don’t come from a religious background and I don’t know where to start.

My wife doesn’t want to go to confession because she cries and she feels embarrassed about it. What would you tell her to encourage her to go to confession?

I worked for a union for two years. Ever since, they have been harassing me. How do I keep my spirit up when all these people are bullying me?

What can I tell a Catholic co-worker who is thinking about leaving the Church?

I am Greek Orthodox but my wife is Catholic. Am I allowed to receive Communion in a Catholic church?
