Universal Faith is not only a blog. It hopes to be a movement encouraging teens in the 21st century to pursue their calls to sainthood and holiness, using our lives and those of the saints as worthy examples. Joining with other Catholic blogs, we hope to reach more people and unite the Body of Christ under one cause.
We also want to provide confused teenagers with accurate portrayals of the Church and her traditions. We want to show them ways to live the faith that will enrich their lives and open up their hearts to the LORD. We want to teach puzzling bits of history well, and leave our brothers and sisters confident that they’re heading in the right direction.
This movement is especially important to Jesus, because He wants us all to be saints, but the secular world has drowned this goal out of the way. We cannot be afraid or indifferent to this call. We can, and must try to become saints to others.
Universal Faith is less about converting other people and focuses more on converting yourself, in and out. We’ll begin with an inner examination, and review the basics of our faith. We’ll focus on prayer and find the easiest way for each person to communicate with Jesus. If the bloggers can’t pray, they’ll have trouble encouraging other people to. Finally, we’ll encourage our readers to examine themselves and surround themselves with holiness. It’s really not that hard.
Universal Faith wants to teach you the benefits of being a saint, and inspire you to live and spread the faith worldwide. Don’t let go of this treasure. This is our responsibility and something we should carry with joy and love. Let’s become saints together.
FOR FRIENDS OF OTHER DENOMINATIONS:
To non-Catholics, we hope to clear up misconceptions, grow friendships with other denominations, and learn about other beliefs in an environment of friendship and love. You’re welcome and encouraged to subscribe to our blog and participate in the commentary. Feel free to challenge us, too. Tough questions make us think. ♥
Once a month we’ll be hosting a guest blog post from a non-Catholic brother or sister so we can learn, find points we can all agree on, and grow together in the Christian faith while clearing up misconceptions on the way.
We will never target a particular denomination, and if we mention one it’s for doctrinal comparison, and followers of that denomination are allowed–and encouraged!–to comment and clear things up. We want to talk to you. We will listen to you and we want to be friends in Jesus.
There’s a lot of misunderstanding about Catholics, but it’s not only Catholics. These huge divisions are keeping the Body of Christ hostile inside herself. Please join us in promoting religious unity, friendship, and understanding. Be a guest blogger. Bring up questions that are bothering you–any at all–and get an honest response.
We are not seeking to leave you out. We beg you to join us and help fulfill the wish of Christ, “that they may be one.” We may not be able to join all the denominations, but we can at least be friends, pray for one another, and get rid of tensions that have been around for years.
If you’re interested in apologetics, discussion, or just love Jesus, PLEASE give us a chance. We love you.
