Pray Pay Obey Catholic

Pray, Pay, Obey
Pray, Pay, Obey

What does that mean exactly? Growing up Luthern, in a small Pennsylvania town, there weren’t many Catholics. In fact, I don’t recall knowing what a Catholic was until college.

Well, life comes full circle and here I am, a devoted Catholic for over a decade. There are something like 15,000 members of our Holy Family congregation. All walks of like.

One of them, I see occasionally at Gold’s Gym. We recently had a nice conversation with these highlights:

Draw nearer to God and God will draw nearer to you. James 4:8.

True love doesnt force anything.

Greed, sloth, doubt, hypocracy – the four points in the circle surrounding the four squares.

Pay, pray and obey Catholic. This is how my friend (60-something) described himself.

God does not want good men in heaven, he wants Saints.

Gotta go. Time to work on praying, obeying, paying and demonstrating.
