Catholics are chosen to rise from Baptism to Catholic Communion!

Question 1:  “What happened when one of The First Catholic Cardinal-Bishops met an important official from the Queen of Ethiopia’s Court?”

Question 1:  “What happened when one of The First Catholic Cardinal-Bishops met an important official from the Queen of Ethiopia’s Court?”

Answer:  “Cardinal-Bishop Philip answered the official’s question about Jesus in Acts 8:26-40 and led him to be Baptized!  Then, Philip spent the rest of his life encouraging more people to be in The Only Church Jesus Spoke Into Being with His Church-Creating Word:

‘And 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.’


Question 2:  “Should people keep moving closer to Jesus after they are Baptized?”

Answer:  “Psalm 66:8-9 tells us God wants us to keep moving closer to Him:  ‘Bless our God, you peoples, loudly sound His praise;  He has given life to our souls, and has not let our feet slip.’


Question 3:  “Did Jesus tell us how we could not ‘slip’ away from ‘giving life to our souls’?”

Answer:  “Jesus died to Speak These Words that draw Catholics to Him in John 6:44-51:

Jesus said to the crowds:  ‘No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him on the last day.  It is written in the prophets:  They shall all be taught by God.'”


Question 3:  “Which people are chosen to be ‘taught by God’?”

Answer:  “Jesus was very clear about that!  ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.’  Then, Jesus gives This Specific Direction about being Catholic!  ‘I am the bread of life.  Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;  this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die.’


Question 4: “Why is That Specific Direction so important?”

Answer:  “Jesus is saying we must ask God to let us be chosen to be among those who ‘believe’ in Jesus so much that we realize His Church was Spoken Into Being to provide His Body and Blood in Catholic Communion by The Miracle of Transubstantiation at the hands of His Catholic priests.”


Question 5:  “Do only Catholics understand that source of  ‘eternal life’ from Jesus?”

Answer:  “Catholics are the only people on earth who make meaningful sense from This Word of Jesus in Today’s Reading!

‘I am the living bread that came down from heaven;  whoever eats this bread will live forever;  and the bread that I will give is My Flesh for the life of the world.’


May all be blessed to see that Jesus has Ordained His Catholic priests with The Holy Authority to Provide His ‘Flesh’ at every Catholic Mass for the past 2,000 years.

May all be blessed to do what Catholics do and obey The Call to Catholic Communion that Jesus repeated 14 times:  “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.”

The best book of the last Century is <em>“The Diary of St. Faustina”</em>. It lets each of us realize how much Jesus loves our soul.

Our newest Free Book does not compare with St. Faustina’s, but some find it interesting:

Actually, none of our books compare with “St. Faustina’s Diary”.  That’s why they are anonymous.
