Being that none of us knows for certain the day or hour of our death, we must do all that we can, with the help of God’s grace, to live a life worthy of Him who loved us first, and we must love others as He loved us by sharing with as many people as possible the Good News of a better life In Christ Jesus
History is full of men and women, preachers and pimps, popes and bums, priests and nuns, who have used religion as a means of gain. Whether that gain is material or to satisfy the disordered passions of the flesh or intellect, there is special condemnation reserved for the likes of this category of hypocrites.
Those who posit that the Pope or the papacy is the Antichrist are troubled to be able to actually prove it, especially through Scripture alone, to which they have to rely, otherwise be found to be inconsistent at minimum for their reliance on interpretative tradition, which began with man who clearly was a mentally disturbed and very prideful.
I’m open to hearing other thoughts about this new Ecclesiology by Pope Francis, but from what I’ve read, it seems to me that this new ‘Gerontocracy’ Synodal Church no longer fits all (arguable ‘any’) of the Theological Marks of the Church that Jesus promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against.
What I’ve learned in life is that if I want peace, then I ought to pray for God to grant peace to others as well as to myself. If you want more joy in your life, then pray for God to increase other’s joy as well as your own. If you make your prayer life inclusive of the needs of others as well, what you’ll discover is what you’ve asked God to give to those whom you prayed for will all be given to you.
This story, most famously told by Jehovah Witnesses and Fundamentalist Protestants, came out of their necessity to support their lie that there was an apostasy in the early Church. It is their way to explain how their reform and late arrival is justifiable.
The Holy Spirit will prevail in His Catholic Church – He always does! As for the Reformation of Pope Francis, this failed Synod on the Family may have weakened his Papacy forever. It all depends on how his upcoming Apostolic Exhortation will be received having found no consensus on issues up for discussion.
There are two things in this life that are spiritually unhealthy; the first thing is meddling in God’s business; the second is meddling in Satan’s business. The latter will frustrated you, while the former will possess you. The best place to be is minding the business that God has given you to mind – tending to the things that God has given you to tend to.
Let’s stop making excuses for Islamic terrorism by calling these evil people jihadists, radicals, and extremists. The Qur’an teaches that Muslims spread Islam throughout the world whole by the force of the sword. Muhammad the founder of Islam for spread Islam by the sword and forced people to convert to his religion.

Oct. 10 2015 segment of The Catholic Five Talk Show. David, Katrina and Joseph, along with our Guest Richard G. Evans discuss whether people are actually born gay or whether it is something that happens post-natal. This is a Catholic conversation that brings in what the Church teaches, current science, empirical data, and pastoral application.
I’m definitely open to other job descriptions that anyone can draw from in the Scriptures and the Council documents, but from how it looks from my list, Pope Francis just needs to have a Synod on the Family that doesn’t produce any heretical documents and he’s getting a raise!
Julie Nicholson and her husband Jim were lifelong Protestants.

Then that journey of futility finally ended when they discovered the Catholic Church. Listen to their testimony in this episode of ‘My Catholic Conversion’, and find out how they stumbled onto the only Church that Christ Jesus Established through His Apostles.
