Why I Am Catholic

Oct 20, 2017

"I am Catholic because I find the repetition of Scripture to be necessary for the nourishment of my mind and soul. I know that in the Mass I will find what my mind and soul need; above all I will receive Jesus, as promised in John’s Gospel. In receiving Him, I am physically and spiritually reminded that in Him I live and move and have my being.

I am Catholic because I am repelled by man-centered, preacher-centered, entertainment-centered, comfort-centered, culture-reflecting worship. I go to Mass as a starving man staggers to find food. I seek Jesus, the Bread of Life. I seek the ministry of the Word Written and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. I seek the assurance that my Heavenly Father is waiting to embrace me. I want nothing that is cute or fluffy or shallow or entertaining or theatrical from the man or woman in the pulpit. I am not inspired by watching a team of worship leaders (???) sing and sway on a stage with microphones thrust down their throats. I want engagement with Jesus Christ, not with entertainers. In the Mass I find Him and am found by Him."

Dr. Norman McCrummen is a former Protestant pastor who came into the Catholic Church after he came to the conclusion through his study of the Scriptures and history that the Catholic Church was the Church that Christ founded on the foundation of the Apostles. He is currently doing a series of articles explaining why he made the monumental decision to enter the Church. The quote above was so well written that I wanted to share it with you.
