Why Christianity?

The creator of the universe is not a thing but a person. He has made himself visible to us in human flesh. He has proven his love to us in his suffering unto death on the cross. This is Jesus the Son of God, the second person of the Holy Trinity, who was raised from the dead conquering death for ever. Today he continues to share himself with us in the Eucharist making us one with him and one with each other. His Holy Spirit continues to lead our Church and speak to each one of us through the Holy Scripture and the writings of the saints. Through His grace we give glory to God the Father.  

This religion is not a personal opinion, nor is it an intellectual or philosophical concept, nor is it a spiritual experience, it is rather a relation between God and his people the Church on earth and in heaven. This relation first began between God and his people the Jews through the law and the prophets and after the incarnation became the relation between God and his Church through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Many of our intellectuals have buried their heads in the sand and preferred the dark over the light. They search for truth in the castles while truth is dwelling in the house of the humble and common. It is through our hearts that God enters and enlightens our minds. There is no greater gift than the gift of self ... that is the Christian way. God gives himself to us so that we may partake of him and be forever with him. Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life, ask Him to open your heart and see!
