    I may be selfish, but what I think of most as the luck in being Catholic – apart from having a clear direction for your actions – is the colossal, marvelous heritage that comes with the Faith. How can anyone not be happy who is in the same church as Chesterton, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Thomas Aquinas, the builders of the great cathedrals, Dante, and “such cloud of witnesses”?

    I have to admit that the Catholic Church has done amazing things in the name of Jesus Christ. I often think that it is a disadvantage to know the truth. The Gospel message has made this world a better place to live and I hate to think what life on this planet would be like without it.

      Bill, the only truth you “know” is that you are running from yourself. God is not your enemy. He loves you; just exactly as you are.

    Rebecca, to your knowledge, did the Texas Baptist Men show up with relief supplies? They generally go to disasters with food, water, clothing, whatever is needed.
    I don’t mean to take anything from this response of Catholic young people. I’m just curious.

      I don’t know about this specific group, but churches of every denomination opened their doors and gave over their facilities to relief work. There were people from many denominations who came here from other parts of the country, and a lot of people from various denominations who dug in an worked long days who are native Oklahomans. They were and are part of the Body of Christ. All of them.

        Thanks. I’ve lost my contact with them. I’ll bet they were there, though. God bless ya’ll as you continue to recover.
