Poem : The Truth of Faith

The Truth of Faith

Visions and miracles
As claimed throughout
The history of the Church
Of Christ – the one and only
Fathered by the Pope
Cannot be simply ignored.
In spite of the truth that
Fraudulent cases exist.
The latter by persons
Who are in need of prayer.

Miracles of The Eucharist,
Visions of Our Lady,
Various medically confirmed
Cases of stigmatisation and
Innumerable cures claimed
By many sincere people
Christian and non-Christian
Cannot be swept under the carpet
Of atheism or ignored by agnosticism
Or attacked by misled Protestantism.

Nor can He who established His
Church upon St.Peter be ignored,
Especially His claim that He
And God are One!
A claim endorsed by the history
Of miracles that Jesus performed
Prior to His death and are in tune
With those recorded since the
Old Testament promised
The coming of the Creator of All

In the history of our species
No one matches Jesus
And no other faith is relevant
And why!
Because He is the Son of God,
The Son of Mary,and Our Saviour,
Who arose from the dead as witnessed
And who lives for us in The Eucharist.
In fact the Eucharist is God!

Recently I saw a Protestant Minister on Irish TV implying that Church Tradition was irrelevant and contending that The Bible was the source of all truth. But later on in the interview the Minister stated that he could not accept that the Eucharist was Jesus – that he had no time for cannibalism.

Surely, this contradicts his earlier statement regarding the Holy Word? Was Jesus lying when he said “This is my body…”? Thus thank God for the Catholic Church and Jesus guarantee that it would always express the truth in matters of faith and morals. - Liam Ó Comáin
