I love the idea and have so many more things than just three :) But here are my top three reasons:
1) The Catholic Church is universal!!
You can travel anywhere in the world (did that) or move to a new state (did that) or just take a vacation anywhere in the world (did that too) and still you will be at home in your church. When I traveled through Europe with Franciscan University, I never missed a Sunday service. I could attend mass in:
Italy (the Vatican)
2) The reasonableness of it all.
When I was younger, I was a lapsed Catholic for a couple years. The rules and regulations of the church just didn't coincide with my lifestyle. And getting up on Sunday morning after going to bed at 3 or 4 am on Saturday night...well...
And as I learn more about the faith, I can just ask my super smart husband questions that come up since he has the ability to read and enjoy books on theology that my tiny brain can't even comprehend :) I barely make it past the title on most of the books in his library!

3) The Catholic Church is one of the largest charitable organizations in the world
Catholic Charities USA–still No. 3 and also in Alexandria–reported pulling in $1.6 billion of private gifts. Rounding out the billion-dollar-donation club is Feeding America. The Chicago-based network of food banks reported donations of $1.1 billion, most of it food.
