"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

Blessed John Paul II, Intercede for Us


Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the Church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your Fatherly care, the glory of the cross of Christ and the splendor of the Holy Spirit to shine through him.

Trusting Fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Sheperd, and has shown us Christian Life and is the way of achieving eternal Communion with you.

Grant us, by his intercession and according to Your will, the graces we now implore, hoping that he will soon be numbered among your saints. Amen.
