To Non-Catholic And Ex-Catholic Friends 

To Non-Catholic And Ex-Catholic Friends 

​To my non-Catholic and ex-Catholic friends who keep on saying that the Catholic Church and all Catholic Priest is the most hypocrite institution and people across the globe.

First, Christmas (Christ Mass) is a Catholic celebration by nature starting from the beginning of Christianity so if I were you, I won’t join any Christmas parties and accept gifts especially salary increase during this time. How pathetic are you to take advantage of our own celebration, customs and traditions and worse, receive alms because of a tradition that does not belong to you and claim as it was yours. For your information, we celebrate Christmas before your so called religion and founder even existed.

Second, don’t attend celebrations like “prayer vigils” and events corresponding to our faith because you always criticize us for “worshipping idols” and even shout at the top of your voice while we are celebrating Mass and desecrate the entire event with your baseless heretic and liberal argument. And what is wrong of honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary, remember the angels honor her and also, the Most Holy Trinity honored her first and blessed her with the gift of graces among all generation and if you dont mind she is the Mother of Jesus Our Lord, the Living God. Lastly, she was conceived without original sin and I must prefer to honor her than your so called Pastors, Ministers, Founders and etc.

And how pathetic are you to blame us with all the worldly things happening in this world and even criticizing us at the same time in our beliefs on Holy Saints and the venerable people that we declared as the Servant of God. If you dont mind the first Pope of the Catholic Church is St. Peter the Apostle, the first Pontiff and if you are not satisfied and contented with that information and explanation here is the other one, Our Beloved Founder is Jesus Christ the Living God, Our Lord and definitely stays with us always in the Blessed Sacrament in the Eucharist.

Third, protest if there is a declared holiday in our country and even in the whole world like for example “the whole Month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to honor a Catholic person and event.” If I were you, don’t participate in any of our celebration. If you don’t mind you can travel out of the country and have a vacation with your relatives, family and friends, instead of opposing it by convincing the entire humanity to reconsider removing all Catholic inspired holidays from the official list of declared public holidays in the world. Remember you also benefit from it, don’t lie to yourself.

Fourth, Outside the Catholic Church there is no SALVATION and by the way, the place called PURGATORY truly exist as real as Heaven and Hell. And if you say that faith alone is the only means for salvation, well Noah built an ark and not just faith alone.

Fifth, the Catholic Church, Yes our Beloved Church compiled all the books in the bible. And of course if you tell us that our doctrines are fake and unreliable, well we compiled the bible and completely studied it with divine will before your so called Founders, Miniters, and Pastors did.

Sixth, the Catholic history can be traced back to the Apostles, not unlike your cult.

And lastly, stop using the Calendar, the Gregorian calendar. This is our calendar invented by Pope Gregory the Great, as well as telescope and other instruments made by our members, use your own, invent your own.

Repent now or else you will see fires of Hell burning your soul! This is just a few reminder and few information, again repent before its to late for all of you, pray the Holy Rosary unceasingly and ask for the help of the Blessed Virgin Mary and you will obtain pardon, mercy and salvation.

Here Are 10 Facts About the Catholic Church That Will Fascinate You

Here Are 10 Facts About the Catholic Church That Will Fascinate You

1.     The highest crime rate in the world is found in Vatican City. With a population of about 500 people and a little over one crime per day, the Vatican crime rate is more 100 per cent, per capita. Although the fact is startling it should be remembered that the Vatican is about one square mile in size, and has nearly 20 million new comers annualy. Majority of the crimes are pickpockets, purse snatching and other inconsiderable offences done by outsiders.

2.    The Catholic Church is made up of more than just the Roman Catholic Church. There are 22 Eastern Rites that are in full communion with Rome and in as much as  they go by different names, they are every bit as much a part of the Catholic Church.

3. The ONLY Christian church in existence for the first 1,000 years of Christian history was the Roman Catholic Church. All other Christian churches which exist today can trace their lineage back to the Roman Catholic Church. Most non-Catholic churches which exist today are less than a century or two old by comparison.

4.    Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press, was Catholic and the first book ever printed was the Catholic Bible.

5.    The Catholic Church is solely suitable for the composition of the Bible, which books are included, as well as the breakup of the chapters and verses. Protestants have taken away some books of the Bible because some of the verses were not in agreement with their theology. Martin Luther was a prime offender with respect to this, removing Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, and Baruch. He also made an effort to take away James and Revelations, but this was not accepted by his followers and those two books were kept. Catholics are often accused of “inputting” the books, but despite this familiar belief, it is false. Older, pre-Protestant, Catholic translations of the Bible include them.

6.  How many saints are realized by the Catholic Church? There does not seem to be an official number, but it exceeds 10,000. Of course, any person who enters heaven is a saint, by definition, so it is certain the number of actual saints in existence is much greater than the number acknowledged by the Church.

7.    Any Catholic may execute an emergency baptism, such as if a person is in grave danger of death. In such a case, the originality of the baptism only depends upon the wishes of the person being baptized, that they desire the baptism. There are definite guidelines for such routines that Catholics should adhere to. Anyone wishing to be ready for such a case should refer to the catechism for a deeper comprehension of this allowance. Usually, such practices ought to be left to trained clergy.

8.    About 15 percent of all hospitals in the United States are Catholic hospitals. In some parts of the world, the Catholic Church provides the only healthcare, education and social services available to people.

9.   The Pope is protected by the Swiss Papal Guard. Wearing uniforms designed by Michelangelo and commonly armed with halberds, they are capable of using heavier weapons if needed. Each member is Catholic, male, and Swiss, and must complete military training in Switzerland. They must show good conduct and be at least five-foot-eight in height. Those who are selected are given a private audience with the pope along with their families. In outermost circumstances, they are considered to guard the Holy Father with their lives. The Swiss Papal Guard is the oldest active military unit in continual existence since 1506.

10.  The Catholic Church consumes more money than Apple supplys. Disbursement by the Catholic Church, largely on charity, exceeded $170 billion in 2012, according to The Economist magazine. In that same year, Apple took in $157 billion in turnover.
