Why I am a Catholic in 200 Words or Less (Much Less)

1. I am a Catholic because Christ in the Eucharist called me for years and a good priest opened the doors and let me in.

2. I am a Christian – which happened before I became a Catholic — because Christ in the Holy Spirit called me. He called me throughout my anti-religion years.

3. St Peter told Jesus: Where else would we go? You alone have the words that lead to eternal life. That was true then. It’s true now.

That, in 85 words, is why I am a Catholic.

    I answer this question this way when asked:

    I am a Roman Catholic becasue I believe Jesus Christ is our Lord and saviour, the son of the everlasting God, and the Catholic Church is the medium that He directly established through Simon Peter, and, through continuouos succession and guided by the Holy Spirit, kept the teachings of our Lord.
