SAFEGUARD YOUR CATHOLIC FAITH!
AVOID ACTIVITIES ORGANIZED BY SECTS.

Dear brethren in Christ, as God’s minister, I would like to encourage you to protect, defend and safeguard your Catholic faith.

We have to be prudent so as not to expose ourselves to danger and this applies as well to our Faith. As Catholics, the best defense is offense. How?

-We must try to grow in our DOCTRINAL FORMATION. There is a need to grow more in our understanding of our faith. That is why it is important to read the Holy Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
-This must also be accompanied by SPIRITUAL FORMATION, through prayer, frequent reception of Sacraments, and spiritual direction.
-At the same time, the necessity of DAILY STRUGGLE to live the CHRISTIAN VIRTUES is indispensable.

Nevertheless, we must not forget the importance of PRUDENCE. In the same manner as we avoid anything that would put us into danger, we must also avoid meetings and non-denominational Bible studies organized by sects and other Christian denominations especially when we know that the Catholic doctrine is being put to question, attacked or insulted.

This measure of prudence includes AVOIDING TV CHANNELS/PROGRAMS or RADIO PROGRAMS owned by SECTS which feature non-Catholic interpretation of the Holy Scriptures.

At first, you wouldn’t notice it, as when a pot is put on a stove, but later on, it becomes hotter and begins to boil, and it’s when they have put you into their pockets and you’ve ceased to become a Catholic.

We do not want this to happen so we must courteously say “no” to the proselytizing advances of our non-Catholic brethren. It is always better to attend CATHOLIC BIBLE STUDIES organized by your diocese, parish or other Catholic Church recognized and approved organizations like Couples for Christ etc. And turn to Catholic TV or radio programs like EWTN etc. (Note: I am not being paid by endorsing the above examples 😀 )


Let us pray daily for the fidelity of all Catholics to the One True Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church. Mother of the Church, Help of Christians, pray for us!

Have a great week ahead, friends! God bless! Fr. Rolly A.

  1. When you state “attend CATHOLIC BIBLE STUDIES organized by your diocese, parish or other Catholic Church recognized and approved organizations like Couples for Christ etc.” does this statement mean that the groups or organisations need be run with competent and committed practising Catholics or priests present at each of the meetings? The Charismatic Prayer Group at my parish seems to consist of mostly non Catholics, non practising Catholics, Catholics that don’t believe in the sacraments, and people that act like born-again Christians that frequently refer to the Bible as a way to justify their own interpretation of matters contrary to those that follow and believe in Catholic teaching.

    1. Hi Kenny, your worries are justified. There are many good Catholic charismatic groups. It is important that the priest of your parish be aware of what’s happening in your own prayer group and must have his approval regarding the fidelity to the Catholic doctrine of what is being taught during these meetings. Otherwise, if the teachings are against the Magisterium, the consequences for the spiritual well-being of the attendees would be nefarious, as what you have described in your comments. You would be doing a great favor to these souls if you bring up the matter to your priest asap. Take care and God bless!
