Living On Catholic Roads
(Is 35:8)

It’s cool to be Catholic!

CATHOLIC COOLNESS …

There are lots of reasons to remind the world how cool Catholic really is.


THE CHURCH OF ACTS

The Catholic Church is the church Jesus started. It’s the church in the Book of Acts. It is the church of the Bible.

THE GIVER OF THE BIBLE

It took nearly 300 years, but the Catholic church gave the Bible to the world. The Bible is a Catholic book!

A WORLD WIDE FAMILY

The Catholic church is universal. The disciples to preach the Gospel of the kingdom to the whole world (Mt 24:14). 


Today …

The Catholic church includes people from every race. We can be found wherever there are people. We are  a single Church (Jn 17:21) with the entire family around the world following the same faith and doctrine, and sharing in the same prayer and missions daily with all other Catholics.

And there are about 1.2 billion Catholics in the world right now.

LASTING IMPACT …

The Catholic church has made a lasting impact on the world in other ways too.

  • We are the largest charitable organization in the world.
  • We educate more children than any other organization in the world.
  • We gave the world the “scientific method” for research and exploration.
  • We have been the primary, enduring supporter of the arts in the world for about a thousand years.
  • And we have preserved the faith that Jesus taught His disciples 2,000 years ago. We still do the same things in the same way that Jesus taught His disciples to do them.

How’s that for starters!

Catholic Cool …

“Shrines! Wines! And Interesting People!” It’s more than a cliche. It actually defines the really cool factors about being Catholic!

Vocation Works

The story of your life is revealed quietly in ordinary events. It’s supporting characters are introduced through happenstance and circumstance. And though your life will likely pass largely unnoticed, your vocation and career will make it a truly remarkable moment in time.

THE SPIRITUALITY OF WORK …

Your story is part of God’s larger, amazing story. You enter into His story through vocation — a call by God to come to Him and to fulfill His plan and purpose for your life (Jer 29:11). Vocation works and work definitely has its own spirituality.

On the Vocation Works website, we explore the spirituality of work. We take a unique approach to this special spirituality. We use career development theory to connect career directly with vocation. And of course, Catholic Social Teaching (should) impact career planning because it reconciles well with leading career development theories.

Your workplace is an important place to God. And your work actually matters a lot to Him too. Learn how your Catholic faith can make a difference to you, your family, and your community between the Sundays where most people spend most of their life each day — in the workplace.

FAITH WORKS WITH VOCATION …

God calls. We respond. Life happens. That’s vocation. We see it play out in our careers everyday. Vocation works because our God is at work!

WHAT’S YOUR STORY? …

Everyone really does have a story. Learn how to make YOUR STORY part of GOD’S STORY for you. For more information, check out the Vocation Works website.

Bible Study Cartoons

“From the desk” (actually, the iPad) of Rom Webster (aka Frank), Bible Study Cartoons breath new life into evangelization, faith formation, and discipleship. The cartoons connect to Bible stories — but they don’t always tell exactly what happened. Instead, they ask the question, “What would you have done …”

DIGITAL DABBLING WITH PURPOSE …

Bible Story Cartoons get you thinking: “What if I were there? What would I have said or done if I had that same encounter with Jesus? How might I have reacted?” When we see ourselves in a Bible story, it takes on new meaning. And it delivers new power, purpose, and potential for our lives too.

What You’ll Find In Bible Study Cartoons

STORIES

When you know the stories, you know “His Story.” And you’ll always have the Bible with you.

HUMOR

The cartoons ask the question: “What would I have done if I were the person in that story?”

THOUGHT

The best teacher is a good question asked. Our questions help you think about your faith.

The Echos

“The Echos” is our digital schoolhouse online. It’s where we speak to folks (24/7) about the Bible, prayer, the spirituality of work, and many other things of importance to your faith!

WHAT’S WAITING FOR YOU …

At “The Echos,” of course, you’ll find our Bible Study Cartoons series. Right now, we have stories from the Book of Matthew there, but there’s more to come. But we have more.

Perhaps the most significant project that we’re working on is our “spirituality of work” courses. Work is so important to Jesus. He spent the first 30 years of his life mostly in a carpenter’s workshop. Our Father in heaven is a working God. And we were made in God’s image and likeness. Good work is a blessing to God’s people.

And as part of the Pauline Family, we have training online of importance to the Pauline laity. And we anticipate having “media” training from the Daughters of St. Paul at some time too.

A SPECIAL INVITATION …

We’re still at the beginning of “The Echos” history. So get onboard with us and pray us to the point that we fulfill God’s call for us.

In Christ!
