What Will You Hear Tomorrow?

In the early days of the Church, Christians risked their lives just to attend Mass and to receive Holy Communion. Today, the majority does not attend Sunday Mass.  Rarely do they or the thousands who only come on Christmas and/or Easter hear of the eternal consequences for skipping Mass.  In some places, it is more important not to offend their “feelings” than to evidence zeal for the salvation of their souls. 

God awaits with open arms all Whom He has created. Make this an especially blessed and Merry Christmas by sharing His love with all you meet, especially those who may have separated themselves from Him and His Church.
