Yes, please cast your stone on me and on every
other person if you are not without sin. I say this to those who
are so good in casting the stones on other fellow people when
they disagree with their point of view, decisions, beliefs,
faith or even the church they attend.
Each and every one of us is free to choose his or
her faith and the teachings of the church without any
justification needed to satisfy any other person.
Naturally everyone of us recognize, respect and should be proud
of the affiliation to his own people of whatever language,
traditions and history they have when it comes to one’s
nationality. At the same time, each and every one of us is free
to choose his or her faith and the teachings of the church
without any condition.
The church that Jesus is its head is universal in every aspect
of its teaching as it was created for every human being with no
distinction of one’s color, gender, language and ethnicity.
The Catholics are rich not only in carrying the burden of
evangelizing the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when
he entrusted the keys of his church to St. Peter the disciple
when he said "And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I
will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail
The Catholic Church teaches us that we are all one family in
faith and our color, blood, nationality and land ties do not
manifest priority in our Christian life.
Any church that gives any priority to anything over the
principles of Christianity, that of the trinity of the Lord as
Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, loses its fundamental purpose
of its creation.
Our Catholic Church has been universal from the day of its
inception and will remain till the coming of the Savior.
It's doors will stay open for any Christian faithful who wants
salvation and profess of the Catholic faith.
No good, true and loyal Catholic will have the authority or
right to discredit any other individual to be part of the
" We cannot in good conscience make the grace of God, touching
the hearts and minds of people, to wait indefinitely for our
approval's convenient time. We follow the path of the Holy
Father, who in February 2010 encouraged the Catholic Conference
of Bishops of England and Wales to accept the Anglican Converts
with a "a warm and open-hearted welcome.. as a blessing for the
entire church."Indeed this is a matter of conscience, canonicity
and Justice." (1)
Finally, I find it very appropriate to conclude by reiterating
the homily of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, made on the
Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul this year when he said "The
Church is not a community of the perfect, but a community of
sinners, obligated to recognize their need for God's love, their
need to be purified through the Cross of Jesus Christ".
