Dear members of the Body of Christ on earth,
Another month has come to an end. Like every previous month, it has been very productive. I thank the Holy Spirit for guiding me to spiritual material that I believe will benefit many of the Catholic Doors Ministry visitors.
This past month, emphasis was placed on the Liturgy and the Sacraments. Below, you will find links to many new subjects that will be beneficial to the spiritual growth of those who are not familiar with the meaning of Lent, Easter, the Liturgy, the Sacraments, etc... I pray that you will all have the opportunity to share with others this newly gained knowledge regarding the catholic faith.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a joyful Easter. By the grace of God, may it be full of blessings for you and your loved ones.
A reminder to those who do not receive the Sacrament of Confession on a regular basis. The Church recommends that you attend to this matter during the next few days so you will be in a state of grace to receive the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist on Easter Sunday.
Let us remain united in prayers for the Church, the Holy Father, all our priests, the faithful, our families and friends. God bless you all!
In the love of Jesus,
Catholic Doors Ministry
