A hidden reason to be Catholic! We already know that Jesus Founded One Church by decreeing: “Verily, verily I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”
He ordained The First Catholic Bishops. They wrote the entire New Testament. Catholics know: “Jesus said ‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.’ He repeated that fourteen times! It is vain foolishness to ignore He Who Fulfilled the Prophecies!”
And, we know that His Church provides six more Sacraments. Baptism, Confession, Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Last Rites are “the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven”.
A hidden reason to be Catholic. The numbers say “Be Catholic!”
Protestantism’s financial consultants calculate that it costs $26.00 per week from each attendee to keep a church going. A Catholic Church operates on about half of that! Ten or fifteen dollars, more or less, is given by the average Catholic at a Mass. It’s a clear savings of $500.00 to $1,000.00 a year for each parent and child, depending on family income.
Catholics understand family economics. “Being Catholic saves us a lot of money!” It has been reported that in some large Catholic Churches,the average donation is $5.00/per person! A hidden reason to be Catholic!
In a lifetime, a Catholic saves $500.00-1,000.00, more or less, each year for 60 years. That’s $30,000.00-60,000.00! A Catholic couple saves $60,000.00-120,000.00! And, they save $$500.00-$1,000 a year for each child. That’s $10,000.00-$20,000.00 saved for each child at home!
A hidden reason to be Catholic! “We obey Jesus! We receive His Sacraments! Each of us has “. . . life in you.”! We save a lot of money! There are many ways it pays to be Catholic! All this, and Heaven, too!”
