I struggled with relics as it relates to things more like incorrupt saints. Interestingly I assumed this was an uncommon difficulty yet I see it rates pretty high here.

The most difficult thing for me was/is the Eucharist and Adoration. I still struggle that it is really Jesus and not just symbolic. I have read Scott Hahn and the Church Fathers till I'm exhausted but after 40 plus years as an evangelical it's hard to change. I have prayed and struggled, but when I go to Adoration all I see is a wafer and I can't see Jesus. I accept Mary and her perpetual virginity, purgatory, papal infallability,and praying with the saints, but this and going to a priest for confession are my stumbling blocks. ..sue

For me it was life after death (go figure! I believed in God and Christ and the Eucharist and stuff, but had problems with life after death!) and the veneration of Mary (and also the other saints). I don't come from a Protestant background, so the Eucharist and the sacraments were just obvious.
