Catholics have The Wisdom to see one thing WE can do to be saved! #11.

Catholics are blessed to help our beloved neighbors whose souls are locked in “prisons of vanity”.


Question 1:  “What is one thing Catholics can do to be saved?”

Answer:   “We may start with Today’s Bible Reading.  First, we see what God told Ezekiel in The Old Testament:  Ezekiel 34:11-12, ‘Thus says The Lord God:  ‘I Myself will look after and tend My sheep.  As a shepherd tends his flock when he finds himself among his scattered sheep, so will I tend My sheep.  I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered when it was cloudy and dark.’


Question 2:  “It is ‘cloudy and dark’ today!  How do we get ‘rescued’?”

Answer:  “We listen to The 23rd Psalm, 1-6!  The Good Shepherd leads us to ‘green pastures’ beside ‘restful waters’ and ‘refreshes our soul’ by letting it be guided along ‘right paths’ with His ‘table spread before us in the sight of our foes’ so that His ‘goodness and kindness follow me, all the days of my life’.


Question 3:  “If we are able to respond by saying ‘The Lord is my Shepherd;  there is nothing I shall want.’, what else can we do for our soul?”

Answer:  “Catholics learn that in Mt.25:31-46. ‘Jesus said to his disciples:  ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit upon His glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before Him. And He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

He will place the sheep on His right and the goats on His left. Then the king will say to those on His right:  ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father.  Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.’


Question 4:  “Whose souls are at His ‘right hand’?”

Answer:  “First of all, Catholic priests and religious!  ‘For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’


Question 5:  “What makes the ‘food’ provided by Catholic priests so important?”

Anwswer:  “Only Catholic priests, supported by Catholic religious, can provide The Holy Food Jesus called us to receive in Catholic Communion fourteen times! ‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.’


Question 6:  “How can every Catholic help people in ‘prison’?”

Answer:  “The soul of every Willful Protestant is locked in a ‘prison’ of self-serving vanity. They are kept away from ‘the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’ that Jesus Christ gave to The Church He Spoke Into Being on earth!

‘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 7:  “What duty do Catholics have?

Answer:  “It is our Sacred Duty to help our beloved neighbors realize that He came to earth in Human Form and died to provide ‘the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’ for all who meaningfully believe in Him.


If we do not ‘minister’ to the ‘needs’ of people ‘in prison’, Jesus will tell us at our Judgment:  ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’  And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.’


May Every Catholic strive to set our beloved neighbors free from ‘the prisons of vanity’ that keep so many precious, immortal souls locked forever away from Christ’s ‘keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’.
