  • Did you know ... ?

    While both Catholics and Protestants receive the Eucharist, the meaning behind the Eucharist varies depending on a person’s faith.

    To Protestants, the Eucharist is only a symbol of grace and the sacrificial nature of the Eucharist is rejected. Catholics believe the bread and wine, once consecrated during mass, becomes the body and blood of Christ.

    The second said he’d like to hear people say he was a wonderful father who loved his family.

    The third said he’d like to hear them say: “Hey, look. He’s moving!”

  • A peaceful revolution

    By David Reeves

    Many who are nominal Christians don’t remember, or even ever knew, that for centuries the purpose of being Christian was union with God. That meant conscious union now, not sometime in the future. As St. Catherine of Genoa said, “My being is God, not by simple participation, but by a true transformation of my Being. My me is God!”
