TO LIVE AS A CATHOLIC
MEANS TO CARRY A CROSS!
This is the intention of Him who
bore His own Cross to Calvary and said,
“Whosoever doth not carry his
cross and come after Me, cannot
be My disciple.” (Luke 14:27) You,
my dearly beloved, be mindful of the
words which have been spoken by the
Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ. You,
my beloved, building yourself upon
your most Holy Faith, praying to the
Holy Spirit, keep yourselves for the love
of God, waiting for the mercy of Our
Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting!
Oh, precious title, CATHOLIC, revered throughout the earth.
I pray no word or act of mine will ever dim its worth.
Not simple glass but diamond bright the Catholic Faith revealed.
Each facet of this precious gem in Jesus’ Blood is sealed.
To know Him, love Him, serve Him is the purpose of this life.
We put Him first; He holds us up through all our daily strife.
Our earthly goals are vehicles, the secondary part;
For He is first in all we do. He is the very heart!
It all starts out with knowing Him, so I must do my best
To learn my Faith and thus defeat the adversary’s test.
And when I die – and die I must, no fear will anguish me,
For Grace will dwell within my soul when I meet the Trinity.
I claim the title, CATHOLIC, most envied name on earth
And pray each word and act of mine reflects its precious worth.
