A-Z Challenge: Why I Love Being Catholic (P)

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".    

Let's continue...


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.

  1. Hi Kathleen! MY SIL and his 3 year old daughter were in Philadelphia! They didn't see the Miracle, but I think it's a miracle that a 3 year old could be such a trooper in that sea of people.
    I love our pope too. How about him getting so many refugees out of Greece, and meeting the plane when it landed in Italy? This guy puts his hands and his heart into showing us the way.
