People stay away from the Church for many reasons. There are some who struggle with sins and a sense of unworthiness. Why would God be calling me? I am a sinner and I am not even sure I can give up my sin. If you are among those who may stay away for this reason, I wonder if you might consider watching this video. It is the end of a talk by Christopher Cuddy, a covert to Catholicism. He ponders our unworthiness to have received this call from Christ and encourages us to simply accept God’s love for us. God does not love us because we are good, we can only be good because God first loves us.
Christopher Cuddy is a convert to Catholicism from Evangelical Protestantism
He is the co-editor of I CHOOSE GOD: STORIES FROM YOUNG CATHOLICS and co-author of SWORD OF THE SPIRIT: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO ST. PAUL.

Thank you Msgr Pope. This blog is bringing “true” freedom to so many. Including myself. Spread the word,
Abba, you are good! Amen.
“Your Goodness IS NOT the Cause of God’s Love, God’s Love is the Cause of your Goodness” What can you say behind a quote such as this, but “humble yourself” God is a Good God, He is a Great God ……….
