"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).
"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church".-St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.
“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15
"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

May Jesus Bless your Holy Week Observance!
In CHEMISTRY, he turned water into wine.
In BIOLOGY, he was born without normal conception;
In PHYSICS, he disproved the Law of Gravity when he ascended to heaven;
In ECONOMICS, he disproved the Law of Diminishing return by feeding 5000 men with two fishes & 5 loaves of bread;
In MEDICINE, he cured the sick and the blind without administering a single dose of drugs,
In HISTORY, he is the Beginning and the End .
In GOVERNMENT, he said that he shall be called WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, PRINCE OF PEACE;
In RELIGION, he said no one comes to the Father except through HIM; He alone among founders of religion who claims to be God!
So WHO IS HE? He is JESUS!
The Greatest Man in History Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer
He had no army, yet kings feared Him...
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us!
Praise and Honor to Jesus Christ FOREVER!
Have a fruitful Holy Week and Blessed Glorious Resurrection Day to ALL!
