Kaya, daming mga graduates sa ating mga Catholic Schools ang hindi marunong mag defend sa ating Catholic Faith. Nakakalungkot iisipin ito.
Kaya, WAKE UP CATHOLIC SCHOOLS!
Note: Wala akong dapat sisihin sa mga sinasabi ko dito. Ang pakay ko lang sa pagsasabi nito, ay paghahayag lang sa sarili kong na-observe. Patawad kung nagkakamali ako sa aking obserbasyon na ito. Kung totoo man ito, ang dapat ko lang sisihin, ay ang aking sarili. Dahil, wala akong nagawa, sa broblema o kakulangang ito.
Many catholics today have excellent education in secular fields. They have college degrees or have done postgraduate work in science, literature, law, or many other related areas. But their education in religion stopped at the grade school or high school level. They have an adult’s knowledge of many things, but a child’s awareness of their religion. No wonder some of them feel that religion is for children. No wonder some of them abandon their faith when they are challenge by calumnies against catholism. (By Father Oscar Lukefahr, CM.-Excerpt from “The Privilege of Being Catholic” page 182)
Jude 1:3 My dear friends, I really wanted to write you about God’s saving power at work in our lives. But instead, I must write and ask you to DEFEND THE FAITH that God has once for all given to his people. (CEV)
"... Answer false accusations, reply to attacks against the Faith,..." (Dogmatic Theology for the Laity, by Rev. Mattias Premm, p. 343)
Faith is the food to the soul. Why not love and defend the Faith?
But, Defend the Faith with Love... I Peter 3:15 "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" (KJV)
The purpose of CATHOLIC FAITH APOLOGETICS is not to humiliate the enemy and win the crowds, but it should plant "seeds of faith" into the hearts of people and win souls.
