There are not over a 100 people in the U.S. that hate the Catholic Church, there are millions however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church, which is, of course, quite a different thing.- Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Definition of a Catholic

Catholic (noun): a person who tries to understand and follow Catholic beliefs in their daily life. Is it really fair to call yourself Catholic otherwise?

The Bible describes how God purifies us through suffering, like gold is purified in fire. We all have a weak point or an imperfection.To some, this evokes the question "How can God (if he exists and is good) allow this?

But, the desire to please God is itself a gift from God. God wants to give you the gift of His grace, and only in grace is there strength to live another day imperfect, but perfecting.

Praise Jesus, true source of Hope! Praise the Spirit, giver of the best gifts! Praise the Father for... being a father!
