“What a tremendous blessing! You have come into our life just in time to defend our faith. We are growing from your great work. God bless you all.”
~ Beth, Boston, Massachusetts
"Where the bishop is, there is the community, even as where Christ is, there is the Catholic Church."
~ Ignatius of Antioch (Smyrn., viii, 2) circa A.D. 110, laid down this principle on true union with the Church, versus schism; all the more impressive because his casual use of the word "Catholic" demonstrates the widespread acceptance of the term at a very early date.
