My wife and I just moved over the break to our new house. It’s been a pretty slow and challenging transition, but we’ve made it and the majority of our boxes are unpacked. This past week, I checked the mail and received a letter from a non-Catholic church down the street inviting me to their service. In this packet was a pamphlet about salvation. It had a picture of the world from outer space and printed on the front was “Are you going to heaven? Find out inside!”
My mission, is to help the Catholic Church grow! It’s to help the Church be alive and strong! We are only as strong as our members are strong! I believe in the real presence of our Lord in all our sacraments. When challenged about our connectedness to Christ - HELLO! We receive the risen Lord Jesus each week at mass. When challenged about our use of the bible - HELLO! Our entire mass is rooted in scripture. When challenged about Works - the bible CLEARLY outlines faith and works - yes, both are vital in living out our christian walk with Christ. We ARE Christ centered! We ARE biblically founded. We WERE established by the Apostles and the first Christians. We ARE Catholic! I am Catholic and I love every aspect of our Catholic faith - it's tradition, it's moral standards, it's unity thoughout the world, and even it's challenges and mistakes along the way that have shaped us to be what we are today - more focused on our daily walk int he way of the Lord.
