The Real Presence Of Jesus In the Holy Eucharist Is Reality, A True Miracle

The Catholic Me

Not just a conversion story…

Tim Francis has a mission to share the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. The miracles he shares of the Communion Host transforming into the heart muscle and blood of Jesus is truly astounding. He believes that once people learn about these amazing miracles of the host transforming into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and a statue of Jesus bleeding real blood and weeping human tears, there will be a revival in the world. New people will have their faith renewed and strengthened. Catholics will again have the reverence God deserves when they receive the real Body and Blood of Jesus. They will understand the importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation before they receive Holy Communion. Soon 100% of Catholics will believe in transubstantiation, where the Communion Host transforms into the Body and Blood of Jesus. They will realize it…

Atheists, Fear Not – You Can Be Pro-Life Too

The Catholic Me

Being a life long Catholic, I have never had a problem agreeing with, supporting or defending the right of the unborn person to become a “born” person. This, naturally, stems from my religious upbringing, which has played no small part in shaping my sense of “what makes sense”.  When debating the “right and wrong” of abortion with someone who shares a basic belief in Christian principles, even though they may support abortion, it’s not too difficult to get them to see that a change in direction might be worth looking into.

However, there have been times when I have been engaged in discussion with someone who does not share my Christian faith.  At times like these, I have found that most spiritually based points don’t make much of a dent in my opponent’s point of view at all.

Perhaps I am the only pro-life guy out here who has noticed this, but I think not.

Some People Choose Evil

HOPE IN THE STORM


Some People Choose Evil 

The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen. (2 Timothy 4:18)

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend about their difficult family situation. They explained that several close relatives have chosen paths which could lead to the ultimate destruction of their souls and have been verbally attacking this person calling them a bigot, judgmental and other far more offensive slurs. Their attacks are all indicators of the poor choices they have made in their private and public lives.

I believe many of us can relate to these attacks. It is only by willingly accepting the grace of God that we avoid the fall. However, the devil lurks, waiting to tempt us toward his evil path.

But by the grace of God I am what I am…

The Reason Christianity is Dying in the West?

Jesus didn’t have it easy. He warned us that WE wouldn’t have it easy. Are we just trying to prove Jesus wrong?

The Catholic Me

Is being Catholic too easy? Have we “eased” people out of the practice of the faith? Instead of “carrying our crosses”, are we throwing them into the trunk of the car and toting them around that way – removing all of the effort of supporting them? Have we simply forgotten them and just left them at home – or in the pews?

I don’t know, for sure, but it makes sense to me. And Brian Holdsworth makes some very good points in this short video.

Maybe you will agree…

BK

For example, in Canada, we used to be expected to attend mass on feast days of the liturgical calendar but they’ve since just moved those all over to the nearest Sunday. Many churches don’t even have kneelers any more because, I don’t know, we don’t want to be uncomfortable? Pro tip, that was the entire point of having kneelers. And…

A Thought On The Mark Of The Beast – 666

Hmm.. A surprise in the Gospel of John…

The Catholic Me

We often hear tell of “The Mark Of The Beast” – the number 666 – being associated with the Pope and, by extension, the Catholic Church. This is used in an effort to show the ‘true satanic nature of the Church of Rome’.

Before I get to my point, I think it would be interesting to learn exactly how that number is arrived at.

Jimmy Akin tells us the origin in an article on Catholic Answers:

…we are told that the number of the beast is 666 and that this is the number of a man’s name (13:18). Not coincidentally, the persecuting, pagan Roman Empire was headed in the A.D. 60s by Caesar Nero, whose name happened to add up to 666 in the Hebrew system of letters and numbers. (In Hebrew, “Caesar Nero” = “NRWN QSR” = N 50 + R 200 + W 6 + N 50 +…
