Catholic’s New Idea about sharing Catholic Truth: Recognizing Peter as “Pope Peter”! 4/3/24

Referring to Peter and John as "Pope Peter" and "Bishop John" makes things clearer than many people want them to be.  No one can argue with that!

Question 1:  “Why should we identify Peter as “Pope Peter”? 

Answer:  “It reminds us that Peter was specifically chosen by Jesus Christ, Himself,  to be The First Catholic Pope of The Only Church Spoken Into Being by His Only 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:  “Why is Today’s Reading from Acts 3:1-10 so important?”

Answer:  “That Passage tells the world that Jesus gave His First Catholic Pope and Bishops the Power to heal those crippled in body, mind, and soul!

‘Peter and John were going up to the temple area for the three o’clock hour of prayer.  And a man crippled from birth was carried and placed at the gate of the temple called ‘The Beautiful Gate’ every day to beg for alms from the people who entered The Temple.  When the crippled beggar saw Peter and John about to enter The Temple, he asked them for money.’


Question 3:  “What did Pope Peter and Bishop John do?”

Answer:  “They had to be sure ‘the beggar’ was not committing fraud by pretending to be crippled.  That is why:  ‘Peter looked intently at him, as did John.’   When Pope Peter and Bishop John were sure that the man was crippled, The First Pope gave him a Direct Order:  ‘Look at us.'”


Question 4:  “Why did Pope Peter command the man to ‘look at us’?”

Answer:  “The Heaing Power of God could more easily enter those who could see God’s holy, healing energy coming through eyes and ears into minds and bodies from The First Holy Father and one of his Bishops.  In the broadest sense, Pope Peter is telling the world to ‘look at us’ Catholic priests and religious as a source of God’s Healing Power.”


Question 5:  “Did the crippled man obey Pope Peter’s Direct Order?”

Answer:  “He had to ‘look at’ them so they would give him money!  The crippled man was surprised when the sight of John and Peter joined with The Holy Energy sent into him with This Word from Pope Peter!   ‘Peter said, ‘I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you:  in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk.’


Question 5:  “What did Pope Peter do next?”

Answer:  “He reinforced the Holy Healing Energy that entered the man’s eyes, ears, and mind by putting his healing hand upon the crippled beggar’s body!  ‘Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.’


Question 6:  “Was The Healing Power of Jesus transmitted through Pope Peter and Bishop John?”

Answer:  “‘and immediately the man’s feet and ankles grew strong.  He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into The Temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God.’!”


Question 7:  “Did everyone see that Miraculous Healing of a man ‘crippled from birth’ by The First Catholic Pope and one of The First Catholic Bishops?”

Answer:  “‘When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the one who used to sit begging at The Beautiful Gate of The Temple.  They were filled with amazement and astonishment at what had happened to him.’ at the sight, words, and hands of The First Catholic Pope and one of his Bishops.”


Question 8:  “Why do many people refuse to recognize The Holy Healing provided by The First Catholic Pope and one of his Catholic Bishops in one of the First ‘acts’ in ‘The Book of Acts’?”

Answer:  “Ask a Willful Protestant that question!  It may give them a ‘Healing Word’ that would let them be ‘walking and jumping and praising God’ instead of self-righteously ‘crippling’ their souls by rejecting The Only Church Spoken Into Being on Earth by Jesus Christ, Himself!”
