All creation awaits the revelation of the children of God. And who are the children of God? They are united in communion with the Son, the Eternal Son of the Eternal Father, the heir to the royal kingdom. We have no inheritance in eternity, or in that kingdom, save through the One Heir, the One royal Son of the Father. It is in HIM that we inherit sonship, that we are able to be called “children of God.”
And so, why am I sharing all this with you? Because the time has come to choose, and not only to choose for ourselves, but to apply all our God-given talents and resources to do all in our power to bring souls back to the Father's House in Christ. We are called to reach out to those who are fooling themselves into thinking that they can make up their own Gospel Way, that they can pick and choose what are the points of the deposit of faith handed down for centuries that they will accept. It's a high bar, but the deposit of faith is like a tapestry. Everything about it is interconnected to create a portrait of Christ Himself and His Way. And to remove any one part of that is to diminish Christ and is a false portrait of Christ.
So, the BIG NEWS is that I am embarking right now on an initiative to activate Catholics like you everywhere to REACH OUT TO others who have fallen away from the bedrock principles of the faith. It's CATHOLIC EVANGELISM BOOTCAMP. Register today, as spaces are filling up! This "boot camp" training experience is laser focused on the deeper meanings of the Creed that we profess and how those meanings inform our life in modern society. We are drowning in a lot of confusion and false notions about what life and hope is all about, precisely because we have allowed the popular culture of the day to overwhelm us with false "gospels." So, join me and others like you who want to get clear on the intelligent way to bring our loved ones-- family members, friends, and acquaintances--back to the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic faith of our fathers. It's happening right now before the holidays begin!
