"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

  1. These are our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Catholic faith or at least, fellow Christians. But despite the threats, I believe that the Holy Spirit gives them courage and strength to practice their faith no matter what.

  2. Yes brother Ferdinand. Our persecuted brethren in the Middle East are LIVING the true faith. They live in fear and constant threat from Islamic fundamentalists but they REMAINED in the CHURCH and embrace the possibility of MARTYRDOM. May we all remember them in our prayers.

    @Bishop E. Bernard Jordan, I am deeply honored for such a comment from a Bishop. I am just an ordinary Catholic who loves the God-Jesus, the saints and the Church. Receiving comments from holy people like you give me the courage to continue my desire to defend Christ's only Church against deceivers. God bless you Bishop. Please pray for us always.
