Follow Jesus

  • June 24, 2024

Thank you to Deacon Andrew Bennett for his inspiring article and to the editor for posing this challenging question. It is one that needs to be asked on a regular basis to assist every person that dares to call themselves Catholic to stop, ponder, reflect and respond. For us, our Catholicity began at our baptism, was nourished through our parents, family, parish communities, faithful priests who guided us (and continue to do so), faith-filled elementary school teachers, receiving the sacraments and taking advantage of the many opportunities our Church offers today, encouraging us to learn and grow in our faith as we journey through adulthood, marriage and our senior years. 

It’s not easy to be up against a society that blatantly wants to undo our Judeo-Christian values but with God’s grace it is possible.What makes us Catholic is believing there is one true God in three persons, that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, the Pope is the successor of Peter and our mission in life is to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ however difficult. Oh, yes, and our love and devotion to Mother Mary! 

Gerard and Marge McCauley,
