Why You Should Be A Proud Catholic Amidst All The Recent Negative Reports! 

Why You Should Be A Proud Catholic Amidst All The Recent Negative Reports! 

This is worth reading:
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Excerpts of an article written by non-Catholic; Sam Miller – a prominent Cleveland Jewish businessman:
“Why would newspapers carry on a vendetta on one of the most important institutions that we have today in the United States, namely the Catholic Church?
Do you know – the Catholic Church educates 2.6 million students everyday at the cost to that Church of 10 billion dollars, and a savings on the other hand to the American taxpayer of 18 billion dollars. The graduates go on to graduate studies at the rate of 92%.
The Church has 230 colleges and universities in the U.S. with an enrollment of 700,000 students.
The Catholic Church has a non-profit hospital system of 637 hospitals, which account for hospital treatment of 1 out of every 5 people – not just Catholics – in the United States today.
But the press is vindictive and trying to totally denigrate in every way the Catholic Church in this country. They have blamed the disease of pedophilia on the Catholic Church, which is as irresponsible as blaming adultery on the institution of marriage.
Let me give you some figures that Catholics should know and remember. For example, 12% of the 300 Protestant clergy surveyed admitted to sexual intercourse with a parishioner; 38% acknowledged other inappropriate sexual contact in a study by the United Methodist Church , 41.8% of clergy women reported unwanted sexual behavior; 17% of laywomen have been sexually harassed. Meanwhile, 1.7% of the Catholic clergy has been found guilty of pedophilia. 10% of the Protestant ministers have been found guilty of pedophilia. This is not a Catholic problem.
A study of American priests showed that most are happy in the priesthood and find it even better than they had expected, and that most, if given the choice, would choose to be priests again in face of all this obnoxious PR the church has been receiving.
The Catholic Church is bleeding from self-inflicted wounds. The agony that Catholics have felt and suffered is not necessarily the fault of the Church. You have been hurt by a small number of wayward priests that have probably been totally weeded out by now and a number of bishops who failed to act.
Walk with your shoulders high and your head higher. Be a proud member of the most important non-governmental agency in the United States .
Then remember what Jeremiah said: ‘Stand by the roads, and look and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is and walk in it, and find rest for your souls’. Be proud to speak up for your faith with pride and reverence and learn what your Church does for all other religions.
Be proud that you’re a Catholic.”
Please pass this on to every Catholic on your e-mail list, facebook and other social media platforms. 
And those that are not!

Dear Catholic, Come Back Home: Good Reasons For Being A Catholic 

Dear Catholic, Come Back Home: Good Reasons For Being A Catholic 

Dear Catholic, come back home. 

It is only in the Catholic Church that you will find the FULLNESS of the Christian Faith.

It is only here that you have a history directly traced back to the 12 Apostles.

It is only here that the REAL and true Presence of Jesus Christ is. The Holy Eucharist – the real Body and Blood of Our Lord and Personal Savior, Jesus Christ.

Where else, out of all 50,000+ Christian denominations, will you be challenged to think always of the Last Four Things and HOW to be prepared for death?

Where else will you experience the 7 Sacraments and fully unite with God’s love for you through them?

Where else will you have an opportunity to attend the Holy Mass every single day of the year? The Holy Mass is the HIGHEST form of prayer on Earth – all the angels and saints in heaven + your guardian angel(s) and our beloved and most amazing Blessed Mother are present.

The #CatholicChurch gave the WORLD the Holy Bible in the 4th century.

The Catholic Church is obedient to authority, is humble just like its founder, Jesus.

The Catholic Church is the only Christian church established by Jesus Christ himself in 33 A.D.. No other Christian entity can claim this; all the 50,000+ others were founded by mere sinful mortals with no authority nor #apostolicsuccession.
#Catholicism is the FULLNESS of Christianity.

Catholicism is TRUTH.

#DearCatholic, come back home.

🕯Take ACTION – Make a sincere effort to attend the Holy Mass at a Catholic Church nearest you this Sunday.🕯 .

💞REMINDER – #Lent2018 begins Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
