The Catholic Church is Forever!

There is a lot of discussion and worry about the fate of the Catholic Church today. Too many people are forgetting that God promised the Church would survive. So much conversation and often too little prayer. Yes, we have problems and possible schisms in our midst but we still have Jesus, Body and Blood, at Mass. It might be scary from our narrow point of view, but the ‘weather’ outside the bounds of the Catholic Church could be worse. I found this quote that while funny is full of meaning for everyone right now.

The New Testament compares the church to the ark of Noah. There is an old yarn about Noah finding his son on the bow of the ark, in a deep funk. Noah asked him how he was and he replied, “Not good, Dad. If it weren’t for the storm outside, I couldn’t stand the stink inside.”
