SACRED HEART CHURCH – – – LAWRENCE, MASS
Where is the road which leads us to Jesus ?
It is before our eyes: it is the Church.
Pope St. Pius X
The Catholic Church is the Only True Church
It would be defended by God Himself, (Matthew 16: 18 19)
It would have authority given by Jesus Christ (Matthew 16: 18 19)
It would be guided by the Holy Ghost who will dwell within it, (John 14: 14-17 ) (Acts 15-28, 16:6)
It would be undivided, (Mark 3: 24-25)
It would have one fold and one shepherd. (John 10:16)
It would have Priest, Bishops and Deacons, (1 Timothy 3:1-3)
It must have the Holy Eucharist celebration, (John 6:42-70), (Acts 2:42 )
It must be found in all nations, (Matthew 28:19)
It must be founding all centuries, (Matthew 28:20)
POPE PIUS IX
“ The union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the One True Church of Christ of those who are separated from it.”
The Church is One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic, and Roman: unique, the Chair founded on Peter . . . Outside her fold is to be found neither the true faith nor eternal salvation, for it is impossible to have God for a Father if one has not the Church for a Mother.
