Why Is Catholic Life Exciting?

         The list of things that make the Catholic life exciting is long. Here are nine of them worthy to mention.
          (1) The Catholic belongs to the Church which Jesus had built upon St. Peter.
          (2) Jesus is the Son of God who came down from heaven to become one of us on earth.
          (3) He is the greatest miracle and the greatest revelation God has given us.
       (4) Through the seven sacraments of the Church, the Catholic receives all the grace he needs.
        (5) The Holy Eucharist is the most precious sacrament of all; receiving it is  truly receiving the body and blood of Christ.
         (6) Through receiving the Holy Eucharist and surrender to God, union with God is attained
         (7) Union with the Lord transforms one into a holy person whom sin can no longer imprison.
        (8) Inner peace, freedom from attachment to the world, and joy in the Holy Spirit can all be experienced.   
        (9) There is so much to learn from so many greats saints who have left us with their teachings and inspirational spirituality.
