Why Am I Catholic? Catholic Church is the Foundation of Society

The latest video from CatholicComeHome.org:

Our family is made up of every race, we are young and old, rich and poor, men and women, sinners and saints. Our family has spanned the centuries, and the globe. With Gods grace, we started hospitals to care for the sick. We established orphanages and helped the poor. We are the largest charitable organization on the planet, bringing relief and comfort to those in need. We educated more children than any other scholarly or religious institution. We developed the scientific method and laws of evidence. We founded the college system. We defend the dignity of all human life and uphold marriage and family. Cities are named after our revered Saints, who navigated a sacred path before us. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we compiled the Bible. We are transformed by Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, which have consistently guided us for 2000 years.

We are the Catholic Church.

with over one billion in our family, sharing in the sacraments and fullness of the Christian faith. For centuries we have prayed for you, and our world, every hour of every day, whenever we celebrate the mass. Jesus himself laid the foundation for our faith, when he said to Peter, the first pope, you are rock, and upon this rock I will build my church. For over 2000 years, weve had an unbroken line of shepherds guiding the Catholic Church with love and truth in a confused and hurting world. And in this world filled with chaos, hardship, and pain, its comforting to know that some things remain consistent, true, and strong: our Catholic faith, and the eternal love that God has for all creation.

If you have been away from the Catholic Church, we invite you to take another look. Visit www.CatholicsComeHome.org today. Ours is one family, united in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We are Catholic. Welcome home.
