On Cell Phones and Prayers to the Saints

The Protestant Revolution Threw the Baby out with the Bathwater

This is a very interesting article by a well studied, well read, wise convert to the Christian faith as expressed in the Roman Catholic Church. The comments that follow the article are quite interesting as well.

It is most interesting to me to read the attempts by those who would call themselves "saved" "bible believing" Christians, to defend one of many thousands of distorted versions of Christianity, ignoring history under the guise of sola scripture, while criticizing the Catholic Church, which despite being filled with sinners, and frail humans, has continued the faith and traditions of the early Church and it's Fathers for over 2,000 years and counting. For, the moment that their pastor makes some new error (in their minds) they will scurry off looking for the next, perfect model of a Christian church. All they need to do is drop their age old prejudices and look at the Catholic Church with the eyes of their hearts and see that Jesus is there waiting for them to come home.

Canterbury Tales by Taylor Marshall: On Cell Phones and Prayers to the Saints: "Recently in the comments box, someone named Wayne wrote: 'I can say with 100% certainty that Mary can't hear your prayers. This cruel joke ..."

Sacred Heart of Jesus we trust in your love for all those who would persecute your Holy Church. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us that we may be made worthy of the promises of your Son Jesus Christ.
