How many times have you been in a conversation and hear someone say that they used to be Catholic? It happens to me more often than I’d like to admit.
When I hear this statement, I ponder how someone could ever leave the Church founded by Jesus Christ. Did they leave to go to another Christian denomination that may have better music or better fellowship? Or did they join a congregation that has better preaching? Did they leave because of the scandals in the Church and find a place of worship led by a non-sinner?
Ultimately, I usually wind up asking the person who left the Church how they could possibly ever leave the Eucharist. Inevitably, a deer-in-the-headlights look follows.
We are Catholic. No other church or faith has the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist…no other, none, nada. Other denominations may have better music, better fellowship, and better preaching but they do not have the Real Presence Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, the most intimate experience on the face of the earth. Never leave this intimacy. Always stay with Jesus.
Ponder: Are you prepared to evangelize to Catholics who have wandered from the Church?
Reflect: John 6:55-57
Pray: Jesus, I love you and place all my trust in You.
