GK Chesterton’s debunking of these arguments:
Argument #1: There are many ancient mythological accounts that parallel the Christian story.

Chesterton’s Response: If a story appears repeatedly in various cultures, might it point to something real?

In J. R. R. Tolkien’s famous stroll with a still skeptical C. S. Lewis, Tolkien made the case that Christianity was the myth that really happened. It was the true myth to which all the other stories were pointing. Tolkien’s logic helped Lewis come to faith. But that line of logic wasn’t new with Tolkien. He was echoing Chesterton’s perspective from two decades before. “If the Christian God really made the human race, would not the human race tend to rumors and perversions of the Christian God? If the center of our life is a certain fact, would not people far from the center have a muddled version of that fact?… When learned skeptics come to me and say, ‘Are you aware that the Kaffirs have a story of Incarnation?’ I should reply: ‘Speaking as an unlearned person, I don’t know. But speaking as a Christian, I should be very much astonished if they hadn’t.’” (Cont) #atheism #christianity #religion #truth #catolico #catolicos #catholicism #jesuschrist #bible #faith #church #cathedral #catholicchurch

“Who is going to save our Church? Not our Bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops like bishops and your religious act like religious” -Archbishop Fulton Sheen

C.S. Lewis said it best when he said, “Regarding the debate about faith and works: It’s like asking which blade in a pair of scissors is most important.” There is a real difference between the sola fide position and the Catholic position, but not half as much as might be claimed.

It seems to me, that if you clear away the shrubbery, the major two positions are these:

The Catholic view: God makes the intial overtures, by giving us through the grace of the Holy Spirit the capacity for Faith, as well as the gift of Faith itself. Like any gift, we can resist or reject this: but our decision to accept a gift isn’t the same as “earning” the gift. Once we’re justified, we’re empowered by God (and by God alone) to obey. Without His graces, we can do nothing to please Him. With His graces, we can obey Him: this obedience is called “good works” in Scripture, although it’s much broader than our modern understanding: it may be like the works we saw in the life of Mother Teresa, or it may be as banal as holding your tongue when you have a pithy comment. These “good works” help us maintain and grow in our Faith, and they’re necessary for keeping that initial spark alive (and indeed, for fanning the flame).* Through a lifetime of trying and failing, and getting up and trying again to obey God, we grow more like Him. We become more Christlike in our demeanor, and ideally, we start to let go of those parts of ourselves unfit to enter Heaven. www.shamelesspopery.com

“I  do not fear at all what men can do to me for speaking the truth. I only fear what God would do if I were to lie.
- St. John Bosco

I never shrink from any undertaking which I know is good and necessary, no matter what the difficulties. If, for example, I must see some unfriendly important person, I don’t hesitate, but first I recite a Hail Mary. I do the same before calling on anybody. Then, come what may, I do my best and leave the rest to the Lord.
- St. John Bosco

“When Our Savior was scourged at the pillar He was lashed all over His Sacred Body, front and back. These marks from the Roman scourge can be seen on the Holy Shroud. One wound that cannot be seen on the Shroud but which was opened by the bone-studded whips was on the shoulder.

As Jesus walked the three miles from Pilate’s courtyard to Calvary, the Cross dug into His torn shoulder, ripping of the flesh to the bone. We know this from private revelations not from the Gospels.

The first saint to venerate the shoulder wound of Christ was Bernard of Clairvaux who died in 1153. He received this reply when he asked Jesus which was His most painful wound: “I had on My Shoulder while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrows, a grievous Wound which was more painful than the others, and which is not recorded by men.  Honor this Wound with thy devotion, and I will grant thee whatsoever thou dost ask through its virtue and merit.  And in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins, and will no longer remember their mortal sins.” #lent #jesuschrist #bible #lovestory #truelove #love #catholic #catholicchurch #catholicism #catolico #catolicos

“Joseph was, we have said, a craftsman from Galilee, just one man among many. What had life to offer to someone from a forgotten village like Nazareth? Nothing but work: work every day, with the same constant effort. And at the end of the day, a poor little house in which to rest and regain energy for the next day.

But the name Joseph, in Hebrew, means “God will add.” God adds unsuspected dimensions to the holy lives of those who do his will. He adds the one important dimension which gives meaning to everything, the divine dimension. To the humble and holy life of Joseph he added — if I may put it this way — the lives of the Virgin Mary and of Jesus, our Lord. God does not allow himself to be outdone in generosity. Joseph could make his own the words of Mary, his wife: “He has looked graciously upon the lowliness of his handmaid… because he who is mighty, he whose name is holy, has wrought for me his wonders.” St Joseph was an ordinary sort of man on whom God relied to do great things. He did exactly what the Lord wanted him to do, in each and every event that went to make up his life. That is why Scripture praises Joseph as “a just man.” And in Hebrew a just man means a good and faithful servant of God, someone who fulfils the divine will, or who is honourable and charitable toward his neighbour. So a just man is someone who loves God and proves his love by keeping God’s commandments and directing his whole life toward the service of his brothers, his fellow men.” -St Josemaria Escriva
