Poet's Notes

I was reading this "Magnificat" mini magazine I got from Good Shepherd Catholic Church. I turned to read about "MASS"-ALL SOULS and Pope Benedict XVI wrote a paragraph saying about Purgatory and I thought to make a poem so everybody has an idea that there is a second chance.

Converting to His Catholic Church takes away all your sins. You will have a rebirth and will start your true Christian life once you went through the process of initiation called Rite ofChristian  Initiation for Adults or RCIA.

You will get the 3 most important Sacraments, Baptism, Confirmation and The Holy Eucharist or the Holy Body of Christ-the communion.

Another important Sacrament once you're a Catholic or Roman Catholic is the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Penance or Forgiveness because it can lessen the hour you have to payback the unconfessed sins you did.

A highly recommendation is a life-long study of the Catholic faith.

To Use an image from Scripture
‘A pot that turned out wrong
 ‘That has to be thrown away we want to be able to be put right’
Jesus Christ gave us a second chance

His Catholic Church called Purgatory
Purgatory means God can put 
Pieces back together again
He can cleanse us in such a way

We are able to be back together again
He cleanse us that we are able to be with Him 
Can stand there in the fullness of life
Purgatory strips off from one person 

What is unbearable
From a pure heart is revealed
We can see, all belong together 
In one enormous symphony of being

    That's what I have because I love the people or my brother's and sisters in Christ. Thank you for recognizing what I feel for non-Catholics. I don't want them to be on judgement because that's it and no turning back. Jesus Christ gave us all a choice to save ourselves and I am here because I've been there. It is my mission to let the people on earth know the Divine Truth. I wanted to help the poor souls but I can't so I want people here to know the truth now that they can still make a decision because they are the one's that can save themselves.

    A life-long study of the Catholic faith is highly recommended and one will be amazed with how much sins they can avoid because that's what I did. Thank you... God's Blessings... Jacqueline
