Dear children of Almighty God,
With the closing of year 2010 comes the end of the sixth year of the reigh of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. As in recent years, the Catholic Church has persisted among persecution of all kinds and scandals that rocked the Church and the priesthood. Albeit, no matter the strength of the enemy, the gates of Hell shall not prevail [Mt. 16:18] against the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church that was instituted by the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Reviewing Catholic Doors Ministry's online work during the past year, I have added hundreds of new files to supplement the abundance of spiritual material that already existed. Much of this material falls in the category of educational. Why educational? It is because it educates Catholics and non-Catholic about the living faith that leads to salvation. Because of the basis teaching and simple English that I use, visitors have come from a number of different religions, using the material according to their needs.
As sad as it is to say, some visitors, including ministers of the Word of God, have stolen copyrighted material such as the Bible Courses and uploaded it on their websites under their own name. Dealing with this matter has taken much time and often led to the closing down of "alleged christian" websites because the copyright thieves would not remove the material from their websites. I guess some believe that because they are located on the other side of the world, no one will discover their illegal activities. Such is not the case.
Considering the pro and cons that are involved in the management of an online ministry, I must say that the good fruits outweights the negative actions of a few who seek to annoy, discredit, destroy, and steal. Many have benefitted from Catholic Doors Ministry as stated in the Guest Book posting. It is this feedback that encourages one to persist in this good work.
I wish to take this opportunity to wish you all a blessed year 2011, spiritual growth in accordance with the grace of God, peace in your homes and in your community environment, and all the unique blessings that the Lord Jesus wishes to bestow upon each and everyone of you.
In the love of Jesus and Mary,
Catholic Doors Ministry
