Official 100th Post

This is my official 100th blog post.

It's been 8 months.

I'm content at the moment where I'm at with the blog.  More importantly though, I hope it pleases God.

For Jesus.

All Catholics Are Christians, But Not All Christians Are Catholics

I got this from a friend's recent post:


Ever get that question, "Are you Catholic or Christian?"  Well, most likely, the person who asked this question is one of the following:

(a) Protestant;
(b) an un-catechized Catholic;
(c) a person who doesn't know history.

Of course, a Protestant wouldn't call themselves that really (unless they know their history) and simply say "I'm a Christian."

And for those in need of a beyond-the-basic point: Vatican II in Lumen Gentium taught that the fullness of Christianity "subsists" in the Catholic Church.  This means that the Church that Christ founded is substantially found in the Catholic Church. 

Partial truths remain in other Christian communities, but Christ founded one Church and one Church only.  There is only one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church founded by Jesus.

That's a 2,000 year-old fact.

Have Mercy on Me, Jesus!

I've been reading St. Faustina's Diary

Have mercy on me, O God, in Jesus's name and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I trust in Your mercy.  Have mercy on me.  Jesus, save me.  Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me a sinner.

In Jesus's name.
