We Know10-20-2019David Lins
You know what I love about being Catholic? We know from historical documents that a man referred to as Jesus Christ walked the Earth about 2000 years ago.
We know that he turned the world upside-down with a message that was completely radical.
His followers recorded Him saying such things as, “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them” (John 6:56) and “If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” (John 20:23)
We also know (again, historically) that He was tortured and put to death in a gruesome manner.
We know that His followers denied knowing Him and locked themselves away in fear of suffering a similar fate.
We know Jesus rose from the dead and made it clear to His followers that death is not the end and there is nothing to fear outside of separation from Him.READ MORE
