St. John the Baptist Sees Jesus from Afar, by James Tissot
Behold the Lamb of God
"The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, 'Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world!' This is He of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who ranks before me, for He was before me.' And John bore witness, 'I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on Him. I myself did not know Him; but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' And I have seen and have borne witness
that this is the Son of God."
- John 1:29-34

Important Advice to Our Visitors:
*The Catholic Evangelization Society urges our visitors (considering the controversy in these end times and recent developments in the Church) to stick to the faith and moral teachings of the Magisterium as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1994), promulgated by St. John Paul, and the old Baltimore Catechism (which affirms them).
The formal, explicitly revealed truths of the faith found in Sacred Scripture which have become doctrine (for instance, Jesus' express teaching on marriage found in the gospels -- Mt. 5:31; Mark 10:11-12; Luke 16:18), cannot be undone by a new Pope, Magisterium or any group of national Bishops.
It has always been held by the Magisterium of the Church that the same Holy Spirit who inspired the revealed truths given in Scripture (which is inspired and inerrant) has always inspired the living tradition of the faith and the teachings of the Magisterium so long as what occurs within the living tradition of the faith and what is presented by the Magisterium does not oppose (stays in line with) the inspired, revealed truths (formally explicit, implicit and virtually revealed) given in Scripture.
We share the concerns of a number of theologians and Cardinals over Pope Francis' recent Apostolic Exhortation "Amoris Laetitia" and wait in charity for clarification from Pope Francis on the teachings presented in it.

This Week's Thoughts:
"I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to offer your bodies as a living
sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourself to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may know what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect."
- Romans 12:2

Click on About Our Blessed Mother, Mary, to learn who Mary is in relation to us (by the way, Catholics do not worship Mary, we simply esteem her as the greatest disciple. We view her the way our society views an Olympic champion -- with great respect. Hence we give her hyperdulia -- the greatest esteem or veneration one can give to a human being. We do not give her "latria" or adoration. That alone belongs to God: the Holy Trinity -- Father, Son--Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit).
