I wasn’t going to do any more purely Catholic posts but I just read something that made me feel like sharing the following quote.
“There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church….As a matter of fact, if we Catholics believed all of the untruths and lies which were said against the Church, we probably would hate the Church a thousand times more than they do.”
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen – in preface to Radio Replies
I used to hate the Catholic Church. Well, maybe dislike would be a better word because I didn’t really pay the matter enough attention to get really worked up about it. I believed all the anti-Catholic propaganda that I had absorbed through everyday life. I didn’t care enough to question whether it was true. Many, many people live like that. I’m so grateful that I got the opportunity to begin to care enough to discover my mistake. I pray that all of you that think badly of the Church get the same sort of opportunity.
I would like to introduce you to a new hero of mine. I love his silly sense of humour and his dramatic delivery. I hope you will overlook the quality of the video (it’s from the 1950s) and see instead the quality of the content. He has done many programmes but I picked this one because I talked about suffering in my last post.
May his soul rest in peace.
