Why Catholic? – Part Three

Hi there!  You’re back for more?  I’m glad.  I promise this is the last of this series.  I never intended to take three posts to answer that question, but hopefully those who asked have a better idea.  I think I explain myself better in writing.  So, grab your beverage and a relaxing spot, and let’s finish the explanation.  Then I need to get some sleep.  It’s been a long week.

Why Catholic? – Part Two

Hey there, and welcome back!  Glad you didn’t jump ship after that last post.  I’ll continue the story today.   In the meantime, grab a glass of something and find a relaxing spot.  Thanks to all of you who have chosen to listen respectfully, and maybe agree to disagree.   It’s the same Jesus, so let’s all love like He loves.  Now, back to the story.

Hello again!  So glad you decided to stop by.  Pull up a comfy place to sit, grab your iced tea (it’s really hot here in Kansas today!) and let’s chat.  Let’s see… where was I?   Oh yes.  God had a plan.
