I was going to daily mass for a while, and I was on fire with the Holy Spirit. It is a calling, a Grace, an invitation from Him. My fire lasted as long as I managed to maintain my heart with love (not long enough) The world gets the best of me. I am waiting obediently during this dry spell. Daily mass is amazing!

The Pope will never change church teachings to accept homosexuality. Jesus made that promise to Peter.

Peter died in Rome. Just because it might not be in the Bible doesn’t mean it wasn’t true.

Read the Early Church Fathers — they knew the apostles and they knew the facts.

With all due respect.....none of that matters. All that matters is a personal relationship with God through His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

All else are trappings of man; utterly worthless. Only God and His Son matter.

There is nothing in the Bible, nor historical records, as far as I know that the apostle Peter was ever in Rome much less buried there.

On the contrary, all of the historical evidence, beginning with Ignatius of Antioch, who died a martyr in AD 110 and knew Peter & Paul personally, points to Peter going to Rome and being martyred there under Nero. The tomb under the high altar of St. Peter's shows evidence of being a Christian pilgrimage site in ancient times, and bears the inscription -- in Greek, not Latin -- Petros eni, "Peter is here".

"God and his Son"? Interesting formulation. Regardless, Jesus Christ founded a church, gave his apostles authority to teach in that church until the end of time, and promised that the gates of hell would not prevail again it. That's not a "trapping of man'" but a promise from God. It's in your Bible.

If it is Cardinal Tagle of Manila, there will be a lot of like-named people from Spain to US to South America and to the Philipines.

Sorry, but the Irish Tagle’s aren’t part of the family.

The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass

There was ONE sacrifice - and that is JESUS.

divine instruction given to Peter,

What was given to Peter was a revelation by God who Jesus is. And on that rock, who Jesus is, Jesus built His church which is based on HIS WORDS/Truth.

to teach one faith

You don't teach faith, it's God-given. Supernatural faith is of God. You use it to understand/believe Jesus The Word by that faith. Man made teachings aren't inspired by the Holy Spirit as they are worldly so students/followers of Rome don't use/need supernatural faith thus they don't learn The Truth, The Way, The Life.

so God wasted all that time coming to earth, establishing a church, appointing apostles, dying on the cross so that each of us could do things our own way??? I want to honor God this way....you want to do it that way...and our neighbor wants to pray the way he insists is the only way to do so...on his head, and how about Fred down the street...he insists that the proper way to honor God is to never enter a church and pay homage at the local abortion clinic......please

No, no, no, no!

Not “if you believe Nostradamus.” Rather, “if you believe yet another ridiculous, stupid claim by hysterical nutcases about what Nostradamus wrote.”

>> And in Malachy’s vision, the last pope – who will soon be elected – is described this way: “in extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman…” <<

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!!! That was added to Malachy;s prophecy centuries later!

Peter wrote from Babylon, a code name for Rome. The actual city of Babylon had long been destroyed.

No.

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts." Is 55:9

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5,6

There is nothing in the bible....

Just because something is not in the Bible doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The Bible is not a history book. It doesn’t mention airplanes either.

...nor historical records...” There are plenty of historical records written by church fathers indicating that Peter wrote 1 Peter in Rome and the excavations underneath the altar at St. Peter’s gave ample evidence he was there. You should do some research on this. The argument that Peter was not in Rome is one that has been disregarded by most scholars.

_________________________________________________________

I agree that that is what matters most. I won’t agree that that is ALL that matters. What we do, what we achieve, and how we treat our fellow man matters too. Tradition, history, behavior, architecture, art, scholarship, all matter: what we do in our stewardship of this God-given life matters. These aren’t “trappings”, they are evidence of our talents we have been given. Some of humanity’s greatest achievements have been from our own expressions of God’s grace. Michelangelo spent four years of his life expressing his immense faith on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and we are all richer for it. That is no small matter, and it matters.
