“I have told you these things so that you will have peace in Me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage! I have conquered the world.” John 16:33
What troubles are you facing in life right now? Are you letting those worries and trials keep you from maintaining your interior peace? God is bigger than those burdens…He has conquered them! Do not allow yourself to lose peace, for the devil knows that you are at your weakest when he has caused you to lose the interior peace you have in Christ. God promises us he has everything under His control. Trust in that.
Challenge: What concrete things can you do this week to cultivate peace in your life?
Protestant loves Catholics Come Home® Commercials
“I am praying for your success at bringing inactive Catholics Home to your Church. I am a Protestant. …anything that promotes Christianity is a good thing to support. The influence of the Catholic Church on the millions of Catholics in the United States is important. I am a friend, and I support freedom of religion, and I am an opponent of “Freedom From Religion” being shoved down our throats, which is exactly what the agnostics and atheists are doing. I respect you all, and wish all of you the best God has to offer us all, his love and protection. Thank you for all that you do.”
-Mr. D. Johnson, Methodist, Veteran, Historian
Polish Language Catholics Come Home Ads Bring Chicago Teen Home to Church
“I’m 17 and I was always a Catholic but I started moving further away from the faith throughout the last year and a half. The commercial could not have come at a better time. I was slowly headed for agnosticism, but when I saw the commercial, I couldn’t help feel a small burst of happiness, and I do every time I see it. It has been a great benefit to my faith and many others. In my ancestral homeland of Poland, many people saw the Polish language commercial and received it very positively, again at a very good time, given the fact that the Church was sadly headed for decline in Poland as it already had throughout much of Europe. I’m hoping the Catholics Come Home movement will continue to make efforts in the U.S., Latin America, and in many of the secular, traditionally Catholic countries of Europe such as France.” –Richie
