Conventional Reality or The Catholic Church?

An extraordinary simplification makes things far easier to understand than many realize:

There are two realities.  Conventional Reality, composed mostly of Press Releases, makes up most of what most people believe.  The other reality is The Catholic Church.

It’s as simple as that.

Most of our neighbors believe in, and embrace, Conventional Reality.  They will often become angry if we point out that they are wasting their lives appeasing the horde of false, hurtful, contradictory idols, demanding to be worshiped, that comprise Conventional Reality.

The fortunate few who are able to get into The Church find another reality, blessed that inn our time, Catholic Fundamentalism shows that every miracle may be better understood than ever.

In our happy time, we begin to see how The Loving Programmer has written and downloaded The Creation Program.  He programmed and energized basic particles, like 3-D pixels.  He compiled them into things, systems, and beings in the long-running, truly 3-D Creation Movie that is the physical world.

Now, that is a concept that may be grasped by the most schismatic of Protestants.

As Catholics, we go far beyond that frontier.  Alone among the world, we understand the fuller meaning of St. Paul’s mystifying Letter to the Colossians, 1, 15-18:

“Christ is the image of the unseen God, and the first-born of all creation, for in Him were created all things in Heaven and on earth; everything visible and everything invisible, Thrones, Dominions, Sovereignties, Powers–all things were created through Him and for Him.  Before anything was created, He existed, and He holds all things in unity.  Now the Church is His Body, He is its Head.”

What does this confusing, mystifying passage mean?  Catholic Fundamentalism has made this great realization:  Jesus Christ is The Creation Program Who has taken human form.

Col. 1, 18-20:  “As He is the Beginning, He was first to be born from the dead, so that He should be first in every way;  because God wanted all perfection to be found in Him and all things to be reconciled through Him and for Him, when He made peace by His death on the cross.”

Jesus Christ is The Creation Program.  The prophets told us of Him, and said He would arrive among us.  He arrived, in the proper place, time, and family, fulfilling hundreds of the prophets’ predictions.  He took perfect, obedient human form.

To what to we owe this enlightenment?  We have been blessed with the obedience to prefer The Church He founded by saying to its first leader, “Thou art Peter, and on this rock, I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” are truly fortunate.

Obeying that “least Commandment” gives us the ability to obey another:  “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood, you do not have life in you.”

When we receive Communion in His Church, we are actually downloading within ourselves the purifying power provided by His obedience to The Loving Programmer.

We begin to see that our own human program is surrounded by cloud programs, tree programs, rock programs, and we understand.

As we grow within The Catholic Church, our views of Conventional Reality undergo a great change.  Many of the issues and concerns that were once of great importance now appear as mindless twaddle.  Catholics see or read the “news”, and ever more clearly understand that Conventional Reality is largely comprised of press releases.
