Jesus is clear: Catholic priests are “the shepherds of His sheep”.

Jesus has used His Catholic priests to guide people into His "sheepfold" (Heaven!) for 2,000 years.

Question 1:  “Is it our fault if we are not Catholic enough for Jesus to ‘know’ us?”

Answer: “Today’s Reading includes ‘The Alleluia’ from John 10:14:  ‘I am the good shepherd, says The Lord;  I know My sheep, and Mine know Me.'”


Question 2:  “Did Jesus tell us Who He Is and who we are?”

Answer:  “Jesus gave us more details in John 10:1-10:  Jesus said:  ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber.  But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.  The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.'”


Question 3: “What makes every Catholic priest the ‘shepherd of His sheep’ for the past 2,000 years?”

Answer:  “Catholic priests are the only clergy who are living links in a chain that reaches back to Jesus, His First Catholic Pope, and His First Catholic Cardinal-Bishops.  Catholics are grateful to them for providing The Seven Catholic Sacraments among these ‘keys’:

‘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 4:  “Why do some people reject The Church-Creating Word of Jesus?”

Answer.  “Accidental Protestants are confused by 50,000 Protestant Marketing Plans.  Each is filled with the usual Talking Points that The Profiteers of Protestantism have been recycling for 2,000 years to get money from donors.

Willful Protestants choose to have One Article of Faith:  ‘We know more than Jesus Christ about where to get ‘the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’.'”


Question 5:  “Is there one underlying error in every Willful Protestant Marketing Plan?”

Answer:  “Every Willful Protestant denies The Power of The Son to Speak One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church Into Being with His Church-Creating Word to give His ‘sheep’ His ‘keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’.”


Question 6:  “Are Catholics ‘saved’ by being in The Only Church Spoken Into Being by The Words of Jesus?”

Answer:  “Jesus repeated this for the second time in Today’s Reading so that no one would have an excuse for not being ‘saved’:

‘So Jesus said again, ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep.  All who came before Me (the false prophets) are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate.  Whoever enters through Me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.  A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy;  I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.'”


Question 7:  “Did Jesus tell us how to identify a ‘false prophet’ who would keep us from being ‘saved’?”

Answer:  “John 14:6 is clear:  ‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.’  Every person who knowingly and willingly rejects or adds to Any Teaching of Jesus Christ is a ‘false prophet’.”


Question 8:  “Did Jesus say we could be ‘saved’ by doing what is necessary to have  His ‘life’ in us?”

Answer:  “Jesus repeated His Call to Catholic Communion 12 times in the last half of John 6 and twice more at The Last Supper:  ‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.'”


Question 9:  “What is the difference between His Catholic ‘sheep’ and Willful Protestants?”

Answer:  “Willfully choosing to deny Any Word of Jesus, including ‘I and The Father are One.’ (John 10:30)  disobeys The First Commandment:  ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’  Willful Protestants put self-serving Marketing Plans that exalt their opinions ‘before’ God.”


May we all be blessed to be among the only people who can be “saved” and be The Best Catholics we can be.

The best book of the last Century is “The Diary of St. Faustina”. It lets each of us realize how much Jesus loves our soul.  A free link:

Our Free Books do not compare with “The Diary of St. Faustina”.  That is why they are anonymous.  But, some find them interesting.  This is our newest:
