This is a wonderful article. Thanks for posting it.
Do you still worship the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Israel ?shalom b'shem Yah'shua Hamashiach
Thanks. It is hard to explain the Catholic faith in just a few paragraphs.
Christians worship the God of Abraham. Christianity is just a continuation of the revelation first given to Abraham and Moses and the prophets. Jesus is the messiah prophesied in Isiah chapter 53.
He is even more glorious than what the Jews imagined. Man cannot become God, but God can become man.
Come’on in folks, the water’s fiiine!
Makes me wonder how many converts are out there in spite of RCIA rather than because of it!
Good article! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for your kind words. My radical feminist sister friend is in her 60s. Most of the feminist dissodent crowd that I have met are close to retirement age. Fortuntely, just like the new priests, most of the thriving younger religious orders are orthodox. It is only a matter of time when we will start to see improvement. For whatever reason many priests refuse to monitor their religious education programs at their local parishes.
With Pope Benedict 16, a new spring-time is coming. :-)
I think that we are going to see a lot of good fruit.
I don't know, but in the "old days," lots of priests were wary of crossing the nuns. Of course, the nuns then were stricter than the priests (and utterly orthodox), so it all worked out for the best! ;-)
I do believe a new spring-time is coming.
Just how it will manifest itself. just how long it will take, just how scattered or global it may be I can’t know, but I believe it is coming
On another thread regarding an interview with Pope Benedict’s secretary, the young Bavarian priest quotes from the French philosopher Rene Girard who said the “we are on the eve of a revolution in our culture” and that the anticipated change (for the good) “ will make the Renaissance of the 15th century pale by comparison.”
I won’t live to see it, but my many children, grandchildren and great-grand-children surely will.
Thanks for your post.

Great testimony. You would appreciate how John Henry Newman a major figure in English literature and founder of England's Oxford movement put it after joining the Catholic Church.
"converts come to the Catholic Church not so much to lose what they have, but to gain what they have not, by means of what they have, more may be given to them..."
He is remembered for a poem best recalled by its opening lines Lead Kindly Light which perhaps was his motto in his journey from Anglican minister to Catholic priest halfway through is life of some 90 years. He later became a Cardinal. "Lead thou me on. Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see -The distant sceneone step enough for me."
Thank you for the ping.
I like this “CatholicTim”.
(BTW - Marcus Grodi interviewed Doug Gonzales 2 years ago. He too was a Nazarene. He lost his wife and children in the process of his conversion. His story is well worth reading.
