I don't see how anyone can be non-Catholic because--

  • I often think about this: how can people live in this crazy world and not be Catholic, meaning not have recourse to the sacraments, and the Mass, the Real Presence.

    When the devil attacks, you don't have any weapons to fend him off with. I have it from a reliable, albeit long forgotten, source that Catholics live longer than Protestants. Well, that does not really surprise anyone, does it?

    Jesus enters our very bodies at the Mass. Of course if we accept Him in a state of mortal sin (un-absolved) we are not doing ourselves any favors and in fact are adding to our problems (had to say that in case some non-catholic reading this thinks she or he can accept Holy Communion without being Catholic, or some Catholic can accept when in mortal sin).

    Too bad priests do not usually say that (the parenthetical part)

  • OH, what a good post!!  I agree!  My Great-great Uncle is (was) a priest of the Precious Blood Confraternity from Carthagenia, OH St. Charles Seminary in 1907.  I wanted to know what was in his "noodle".  Readings from Father Faber and Cardinal Manning  and such is an eye opener!

    Our son got into gambling, what a sadness and hurt!!  He was so upset with himself, a trucker.  He was told by Alcoholics Anonymous group that cure rate is lower than alcoholics which is maybe 15%.  He went crazy thinking he would never rise above it.  I had a very good talk with him.  How the devils work and such.  But he was crying for a cure.

    I told him, I will tell you what I know that is true.  The AA bring in all kinds of people and tell you to go to your god.  Right?  Yes, of that group how many are catholic?  I would say the 15% are catholic, because they have the precious blood to save them.  I told our son, do you understand what Mom is saying.  Those other people have no precious blood, they have nothing, right?!  You do, son.  The Catholic Church, decades ago had groups that were for just this reason.  Like addicts, those coming home after war, drinkers and such.  This was before AA?  So, son, these groups were told, frequent the sacraments, because the Precious Blood is in ALL the Sacraments. Fr. Faber says this in his book, The Precious Blood.

    My son was relieved.  As a trucker he was told by the AA that he would have to come to their meetings every Thurs.  Well, truckers don't live like that.  He was able to land a job, family owned and operated that refuses to work on Sunday.  The Pay fairly and my son is so relaxed now. He has been cured(?) for 15 years so far.  

    Thank God that His precious Blood is still with us, but will pass one day, Chapter 12 of Daniel

  •  i know someone (know OF someone) who is having a strange kind of mental/emotional breakdown. I don't know the details as to why, hardly know this person, but I suggested talking to a priest, even though not Catholic. The person did not take the advice and the situation is un-changed. 

    I would be severely depressed and etc myself if I did not have the Real Presence. The world outside the Church is completely different (the social world) from inside (with Jesus). anyone caught up in the affiars of the world will go bonkers one way or another (losing your soul is the ultimate "bonkers.")
