For as many attacks that are directed at our Catholic faith, it is refreshing to remember this statistic that reminds us of the extent to which the Catholic faith is a force of good in the world.
The Catholic Church is both human and divine. Our Church is made up of sinners as well as saints. Because it is human, it will always have sinful people in it, just like every other religion, Protestant denomination, organization or family. But because it is divine, founded by Jesus Christ, and guided by the Holy Spirit, it will last forever.
The Church is filled with so many good people doing their best to imitate Christ and serve others.Thank you for all you do in your various churches, hospitals, schools and programs to help so many people around the world. We should all be grateful and humbled to be part of the Church that Jesus founded nearly 2000 years ago.
