The challenge is on. Write a post each day in April (minus Sundays) using the letters of the alphabet as your guide.
The theme I have chosen is "Why I Love Being Catholic".
Definition: The Pope is the Bishop of Rome and the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church.
Bible: Matthew 16:18-19 I for my part declare to you, you are Rock, and on this rock I will build my church, and the jaws of death shall not prevail against it. I will entrust to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you declare bound on earth shall be bound in heaven; whatever you declare loosed on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Personal: Last September, Pope Francis came to Philadelphia. We live a short distance from there and....I didn't go!! What was I thinking??
My husband was there and got to be a witness to the Miracle on Market Street. Read about that Here.
I love having a Pope. I like order; I like rules. And the fact that the Pope, and subsequently his successors, was anointed by Jesus himself and that he is guided by the Holy Spirit, makes it a no-brainer.
