A Travel Back to the Catholic Basics
edit_button

I recently read of an incident at a Church where a group of people after Communion ran up to the altar and smashing it onto the ground and destroying it. Today, I read a follow-up where the vandals claimed that a vision from Heaven led them to do it. And this article also stated they did it because Catholics don't care at the Mass. They just say the words with no feeling; they worship the idol - the altar.

I was deeply saddened by this and for that reason I wanted to start a "Return to the Basics" this week and I would appreciate others bloggers doing the same. I'd like to post links to my articles on the true teachings of the Church as we are NOT idolaters.

Basics:

Praying to Saints? Is this wrong?
Prayer
The Mass
Purgatory
Indulgences
Sacraments
Eucharist
Confession
Prayer to Mary
Dogma of the Immaculate Conception

"After all, we are the Body of Christ, and wouldn't Christ's hands comfort the dying, admonish the sinner, and instruct the ignorant?"

Many of us do this with no religious/supernatural influence.

Good, but it is also important to do it for God. After all, everything should be for Him who loved us to the death. Don't just do good works but do them for God; love your neighbor because of Him.

JOY = Jesus first, others second, yourself last.

I remembered something from the seminar I attended few months back... 'we do God's work, not working for God.' There's a big difference between the two.

Think about it.
