Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said Jesus spent 30 years obeying, 3 years teaching, and 3 hours redeeming. From those three’s came our Holy Mother, the Church. The purpose of the Church, our one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, is not just to comfort individuals, to celebrate events, or to give us laws to follow. The purpose of the Church is to tell the world, with one united voice through, with, and in our savior Jesus Christ, that there is something better and another way of life is possible that brings us joy and fulfillment. We pray today that we use our freedom to follow God’s law in achieving what is good, true and beautiful and, in the end, our eternal salvation.Click HERE for the full article.
So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).
