Many ways it pays to be Catholic! 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!”
His Church provides six more Sacraments. Baptism, Confession, Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Last Rites are “the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven”.
All souls cry out to be Catholic. Vanity and confusion keep many away.
There is another reason to be in The Only Church He Founded. 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 realize: “Being Catholic lets me obey the clear call to Catholic Communion that Jesus repeated fourteen times! That puts me among that select group of whom Jesus said: ‘You are My friends if you obey My commands.’ That’s the biggest “IF” on earth!”
Catholics understand family economics. “Being Catholic saves us a lot of money!”
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!
Many ways it pays to be Catholic! “We obey Jesus! We receive His Sacraments! Each of us has “. . . life in you.”! Many ways it pays to be Catholic! All this, and Heaven, too!”
