David LinsCatholic Thoughts

A Mobile Home

06-24-2018David Lins

A house is difficult to move unless it is a mobile home.

We all know someone—or several people—who have left the Catholic Faith. The resulting emotions might include hurt, disappointment, and/or shock. How could they leave?

The bottom line is simple: how strong was their foundation? If a foundation is shallow, the slightest breeze can blow it over. If a person doesn’t realize Mary is referenced in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, any attack on the Blessed Mother can shake them. If a person doesn’t realize Jesus didn’t budge when people left during His teaching on the Eucharist, any attack on the Eucharist can shake them. If a person doesn’t realize Scripture clearly describes God calling us and knowing us while we are still in the womb (as found in this weekend’s Readings), abortion ceases to be an article of our Faith.

Why is Preschool Important?

“I can show my child colors, numbers, and letters” says a parent of a young child. Yes, you can, however, having your child in a learning environment with other classmates allows them to grow socially, emotionally and cognitively.
