Today’s Catholic Reading is an amazing History Lesson!

History began with The Word with Which God began To Speak The Creation Program Into Being: “Let there be light.”  Jesus shines more of His ‘Light’ on Catholics.

History began with The Word with Which God began To Speak The Creation Program Into Being: “Let there be light.”  Jesus shines more of His ‘Light’ on Catholics.


Question 1:  “What History Lessons do we learn from Today’s Catholic Reading in Acts 16, 1-10?”

Answer:   “We learn to connect Alexander the Great, who lived 300 years before Jesus, with Jesus Christ!  St. Paul, The Twelfth of The First Catholic Cardinal-Bishops, traveled with St. Timothy through parts of Alexander’s former Empire between Jerusalem and Macedonia.  Paul and Timothy, who was half-Jewish and half-Greeek, spoke with many people in Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic.

‘As they traveled from city to city, they handed on to the people for observance the decisions
reached by the Apostles and presbyters in Jerusalem.  Day after day the Churches grew stronger in faith and increased in number.’ 

Only Catholics are blessed to let This Simple Historical Fact into our minds:  ‘Those ‘Churches’ were all Catholic.’


Question 2:  “Where did ‘The Spirit of Jesus’ send them?”

Answer:  “‘During the night Paul had a vision.  ‘A Macedonian stood before him and implored him with these words,  ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’  When he had seen the vision, we sought passage to Macedonia at once, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them.’


Question 3:  “That is an important History Lesson!  St. Paul, The Twelfth Catholic Cardinal-Bishop, was sent to invade and conquer the homeland of Alexander The Great!  Did that echo Words of God in The Psalms?”

Answer:  “Psalm 100, 1-5, includes:  ‘Sing joyfully to The Lord, all you lands;  serve The Lord with gladness;  come before Him with joyful song. — Know that The Lord is God;  He made us, His we are;  His people, the flock He tends. — The Lord is good:  His kindness endures forever, and His faithfulness, to all generations.’ 

Before and after each Psalm, Catholics know History well enough to proclaim, ‘Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.’


Question 4:  “What advice does St. Paul still give to those blessed to recognize Jesus as the Fulfilment of God’s Work on earth in every aspect of History?”

Answer:  “His letter to The Colossians 3:1 tells us what every person blessed to meaningfully obey Jesus would ‘seek’:   ‘If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.’


Question 5:  “What people did The First Catholic Cardinals, Bishops, priests, and religious ‘seek’?”

Answer:  “They gave their lives to ‘seek’ building The Catholic Nation from people blessed to be living syllables in This Word of Jesus Christ, Himself, in John 15:18-21:  ‘Jesus said to His disciples:  ‘If the world hates you, realize that it hated Me first.  If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own;  but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.’


Question 6:  “Was Jesus identifying His ‘chosen race’ of people who loved God more than things in the huge universe He created?”

Answer:  “The vast History and Size of God’s Creation are measured by many trillions of ‘light years’.  It was all Spoken Into Being to identify people who would meaningfully ask God to ‘Choose me!’

Jesus told His First Catholic Pope and Those Disciples He chose to be The First Catholic Cardinal-Bishops that worldly people would attack them:  ‘Remember the word I spoke to you,  ‘No slave is greater than his master.’  If people persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.  If people kept My Word, they will also keep your words  (Their “words” appear in The Catholic Catechism!)  And they will do all these things to you on account of My Name, because they do not know The One Who sent Me.’


Only Catholics see This Simple History Lesson:  “Every human life began when one fertilized cell the size of a grain of salt grew into us inside our Mother’s Womb.  Our telescopes and microscopes show us some of God’s Creation.  He put everything in place so that we who want to be close enough to Our Creator to receive His Body and Blood in Catholic Communion may do so.”

History tells us that Life is as simple as that.

May God bless us all to Think Clearly enough about Who Jesus Is to be Catholic, receive That Holy Food, and obey what Jesus Christ, Himself, told us 14 times:  “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.”.
