Do not believe -- *proclaim*with your life

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Matthew 16:26 

"Why shall we obey the Catholic Church and accept all of her teachings?" People who ask this question try to convince as many Christians as they can that in our modern times  "the old fashion, burdensome  prescriptions of the Church are good for nothing, or that, "since faithfuls believe in God and not in some institution, they may pray at  theirs homes." Such people forget, however, that outside the Church man's soul will not be saved, and that -  "burdensome prescriptions" are, in fact, the Ten Commandments given to beloved children as the tools of Mercy, not torture...

Mary, Mother of the Church, can serve(not only)on the presented issue as a raw model for us all : She knows well that believing in God is not enough...One shall wholeheartedly accept the Holy Will and then live in accordance with It unless (s)he wants to act like the proudest of all believers - Lucifer.

It is not always easy to obey but would it not be much better for us to give, through the caring hands of Mary, everything out of love for God and His children than to "gain" the whole world with the help of the devil?

PS Please pray for all the sinners(myself included...) that they may be able to give a correct and meaningful  Marian response - preferably with their own lives - to the second question someday.

Remember about all poor test-takers as well ! :)
