Bread of Life

Bread of Life
 this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. (john 6: 50)
The miracle of God’s physical presence to us at every Mass is the truest testament to Christ’s love for us and His desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him. Jesus Christ celebrated the first Mass with His disciples at the Last Supper, the night before He died. He commanded His disciples, “Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). The celebration of the Mass then became the main form of worship in the early Church, as a reenactment of the Last Supper, as Christ had commanded. Each and every Mass since commemorates Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross through the Holy Eucharist. Because the Mass “re-presents” (makes present) the sacrifice on Calvary, Catholics all around the world join together to be made present in Christ’s timeless sacrifice for our sins. There is something fascinating about continuing to celebrate the same Mass—instituted by Christ and practiced by the early Church—with the whole community of Catholics around the world…and in heaven.

Why does the Catholic Church believe Christ is really present in the Eucharist?
The Catholic doctrine of the Real Presence is the belief that Jesus Christ is literally, not symbolically, present in the Holy Eucharist—body, blood, soul and divinity. Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist because Jesus tells us this is true in the Bible:

“I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ So Jesus said to them,

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him” - John 6:48-56
Furthermore, the early Church Fathers either imply or directly state that the bread and wine offered in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper is really the body and blood of Jesus Christ. In other words, the doctrine of the Real Presence that Catholics believe today was believed by the earliest Christians 2,000 years ago!

This miracle of God’s physical presence to us at every Mass is the truest testament to Christ’s love for us and His desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him.

JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES AND THE SATANIC CHURCH....

What They Will Never Tell You...

Jehovah Witnesses like to say that the Catholic Church was founded by satan. Of course they never have produced any documented proof of this false charge, but yet they still they repeat it over and over again.
Once again they have failed to comprehend their own Bible and the history of the Catholic Church.

Let us look at Matthew 12:25-26:
And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand?"
Apparently the Watchtower Society has never heard of 'Exorcisms'. You see, it is very well documented fact that the Catholic Church has, for centuries, performed successful 'Exorcisms' to defend against demonic entities.

Since the Catholic Church has 'cast out Satan' in hundreds of well documented cases, how then could Satan cast out Satan?

Also, since the Catholic Church has stood for almost 2000 years, isn't that in itself a direct contradiction to what Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:25-26?

How then can the Catholic Church be Satanic?

Trish's Story

Born and raised Jehovah's Witness for 42 years, she experienced first-hand the hypocricy that exists in the legalistic environment of the Watchtower organization.

After suffering years of abuse in her Jehovah's Witness marriage and failing to live up to every expectation of the Watchtower, Trish divorced her JW husband, telling him that he could have custody of the religion, and she was keeping the kids!

Living in limbo with no religious affiliation to claim, God in His mercy and grace opened Trish's eyes to the Truth. Read Trish's Story out of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The Jehovah’s Witness Watchtower organization has hurt so many people (including myself) that to ignore the damage done by cult mind control would be wrong indeed. I lived with a Jehovah Witness member that controlled and manipulated me. He took all of my basic rights away. Without the use of mind control tools like love bombing, loading the language, spying on each other, using thought stopping techniques, and control of information the Jehovah Witness Watchtower organization would not be able to hold its control over its members. I hope that the Catholics and members of other faiths will take the time to research cult mind control so that they can help those enslaved.

Dear Christian,
I can relate to your process - being controlled etc - I spent all my childhood in children’s homes and orphanages.

God bless you

HOW TO GET RID OF A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS

When they ask, "Can I talk to you about God?" Reply, "Sure, what would you like to know?"

Answer the door with a bloody knife and say, "I'm sorry, could you come back in a half hour? We're not done with the virgin yet."

Answer the door with an automatic weapon and say 'Allah be Praised!

Ask them for their address. When they ask why you want it, claim that you want to appear on their doorstop univited so that you can peddle your own beliefs.

Look smug and tell them that your God can beat up their God.

Tell them you already have your own religion. When they ask what it is, wince a little before confessing, "er, I'm not sure if it's legal in this country

A chalk outline of a human body on the pavement, and a few copies of "The Watchtower" scattered around...

Answer every one of their questions with "What do you mean by that?" This might take a while, but you and your loved ones can have fun placing bets on how long it takes for them to leave.

Ask them to explain the story of Elisha and the Forty-two children.

Invite them in to see your fine collection of dinosaur fossils.

What do you get when you cross Jehovah’s Witness with a Mafia hitman?

Lots of converts.
