Mike, I do not make "mere" men a Hero when in regards Jesus Christ. Your popes are mere men and can not tell me anything other than that already revealed in the bible.

Wait a minute. I had to go back to this one. Jesus was a Jew when he died. Your Christian hero was a Jew?
So what! Jesus is the promised Messiah to the Jew first and then to the gentile. Jesus is the Christ- it is his name we wear-just Christians and not catholics. You are getting ridiculous now...

Bobby: Have you finished searching for 1 Christian hero?

The problem with you low enders is it is all about you. You interpret the Bible and decided what is the truth.

Of course you say you don't have that. Nobody does. God doesn't expect us to.

A protester is one who lets Jesus save him on his own terms.

That is why you don't have 1 Christian hero in those 1700 years. Nobody believed like you. You made it all up

The Church said that. You believe the Trinity because of the Tradition of the Church. Trinity is not in the Bible.

Jesus was God. Blessed Mary was the Mother of Jesus. Blessed Mary was the Mother of God.

What about Blessed Anne Marie Taigi.

She was just a housewife.

Daughter Luigi Giannetti and Maria Masi. Her father was a pharmacist in Siena, Italy, but his business went bankrupt when Anna Marie was five years old. The family moved to Rome, Italy in search of work, but Luigi could only find a job as a household servant. Anne was married on 7 January 1789 to Dominico Taigi, a butler to the noble family of Chigi. She was married for 48 years, and mother of seven, two of whom died very young.

Anne Marie was always very concerned about her dress and appearance, far more than would be expected of a working class mother. Life at home was not always peaceful, Dominico could be ill-tempered and caustic, and Anne was known to have had an adulterous affair with an older man. But one day while at prayer at Saint Peter’s Cathedral, she felt a sudden strong inspiration to ignore the things of this world. She began to live a more austere life, and to listen to the Spirit. Trinitarian tertiary. She found holy spiritual directors, gave all she could to the poor, visited the sick, and counselled many of the patients at the hospital of San Giacomo of the Incurables. She worked hard to evangelize her own family, changing her husband’s demeanor, and they all regularly assembled in a small personal chapel to pray together.

As the years went on and Anne Marie devoted herself more and more to prayer, she began to receive mystical gifts, including prophecy and clairvoyance. She sometimes went into ecstacies, and received heavenly and prophetic visions. Her simple presence had a powerful effect on many, and she helped with many conversions. Counsellor to cardinals, royalty and three popes.

Because of her charismatic gifts, and her lack of concern about worldly matters, Anne was often the topic of gossip and sander, but she was the recipient of public veneration soon after her death, and her Cause for beatification began in 1863.

Rich, young Christian of Greek ancestry. Raised in a pious family, she vowed her life to Christ. Her Roman father died when she was young. Her mother, Eutychia, arranged a marriage for her. For three years she managed to keep the marriage on hold. To change the mother’s mind about the girl’s new faith, Lucy prayed at the tomb of Saint Agatha, and her mother’s long haemorrhagic illness was cured. Her mother agreed with Lucy’s desire to live for God, and Lucy became known as a patron of those with maladies like her mother’s.

Her rejected pagan bridegroom, Paschasius, denounced Lucy as a Christian to the governor of Sicily. The governor sentenced her to forced prostitution, but when guards went to fetch her, they could not move her even when they hitched her to a team of oxen. The governor ordered her killed instead. After torture that included having her eyes torn out, she was surrounded by bundles of wood which were set afire; they went out. She prophesied against her persecutors, and was executed by being stabbed to death with a dagger. Her name is listed in the prayer “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in the Canon of the Mass.

Legend says her eyesight was restored before her death. This and the meaning of her name led to her connection with eyes, the blind, eye trouble, etc.

Born

* c.283 at Syracuse, Sicily

Died

* stabbed in the throat c.304 at Syracuse, Sicily
* her relics are honoured in churches throughout Europe

Joseph Tremblay. Born in Quebec, Canada, 1924. He was ordained a priest in Rome, Italy and was sent to Bolivia, Chile where he served for 13 years "as a missionary in the congregation of the Oblate Fathers of Mary Immaculate."

Salvation by works. "My theology has taught me that salvation is by works and sacrifices ... my theology gives me no assurance of salvation; the Bible offers me that assurance ... I had been trying to save myself on my works ... I was stifled in a setting in which I was pushed to do good works to merit my salvation." (pp. 9, 11-12)

Saint Peter don't call me cause I can't go, I owe my soul to the company store!

The origin of the superstition of Friday the 13th began on Friday the 13th of October, 1307. King Phillip IV of Spain had borrowed a very large amount of money and personnel from the Templars, in order to wage war against the English, and when Pope Clement V sent him word that there were suspicions about the Christian nature of the Templar brotherhood, Phillip seized the opportunity, sending his men out to round up, arrest and imprison all the Templars in Spain.

Phillip accused them of the most atrocious sins imaginable for that time, including apostasy (which means renouncing Christ), heresy, idolatry and even sodomy. Any one of these “crimes” warranted death back then, and the Templars were guilty of precisely none. But Phillip saw an extraordinary chance to eradicate the Templar order from his entire country and seize its incalculable wealth for himself. He bullied Clement V with political embargoes, and Clement acquiesced with an Inquisition convened to investigate these accusations.

The “investigation” involved torturing the Templars via very perverted, horrifying methods, with the single proviso that no blood be spilled. If they died from the torture, it was deemed “righteous punishment.” But none of them did, according to the records we have. Most were put on the rack and stretched until their shoulders dislocated. Some had their testicles crushed in vises, which caused them to bleed profusely, of course, but internally. No blood was spilled. Some were shackled to the dungeon floors and had their feet roasted to the bone in furnaces.

They, understandably, confessed to all sorts of horrible offenses to the Church, including the above mentioned, along with spitting on the cross. As soon as their tortures were over, the recanted their confessions. They may have been in possession of the Shroud of Turin at this time, which constituted idolatry. Clement issued a Papal Bull on 22 November, ordering that Templars be arrested and tortured all over Europe, and they were.

Phillip IV is the most directly to blame, but the Catholic Church was officially and directly responsible in torturing and executing the Templar knights, knowing full well that they were innocent of all charges. Most of the Templars across Europe actually escaped or were acquitted, but those convicted, including the Grandmaster Jacques de Molay, were, to a man, burned at the stake, most after gruesome tortures. He is said to have screamed out of the flames that Phillip and Clement would both meet him before God,“and that right soon.” They both died within a year; Phillip had a stroke and fell off his horse while hunting; Clement died of natural causes, and a rumor persists that his body lay in state during a thunderstorm, when lightning struck the building and burned it to the ground.

Money and political influence.

Go to any central or south American country and you will find the Catholic church deeply entrenched in the workings of government.

The new pope is from Argentina. That is not a coincidence either.

How much money does your preacher man make. When another non-Catholic ecclsial community offers him more money, he will announce that Jesus is calling him to be a preacher man at that place.

Jesus rarely calls a preacher man to a place with less money. Jesus is like that huh?

If he doenst get a raise , he will start his own community church.

Making a nice living off the blood of Christ.

My last priest made 750 a month. He technically had Monday off.

Non parish priests put what they make into the community into where the live

The Protestants used to be entrenched in American politics. They have been too busy devouring each other to be relevant anymore.

The Church has not given up that role to protect religious liberty.

Used to be?

Watch television around an election season and see how many candidates tout themselves as church-goers in their ads. Mostly the Baptists and Methodists.

You have to pass a Christian litmus test in order to run as a Republican.
