"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

I prefer the priest with the rosary in his hands, rather than the BlackBerry

Here is the poem, written by Arswendo Atmowiloto:
[Source: AsiaNews]

Source: chanttherosary

“I truly long for a priest who is hospitable…
Priest with kind-hearted personality
Priests with rosaries at their hands rather than the Black Berries
Priests who are kindly listening to their congregation rather than much talking
Priest who easily extend their loving heart to people
Who could “change” despair into hope
Who are competent in both ritual and spiritual richness.”

Spread this simple poem a challenge for our priests (and nuns) and for the entire Catholic faithful.
