The Diocese of Portsmouth is asking lapsed Catholics to “come home”. 80 per cent of them do not attend mass.
In a two-minute video cradle Catholics are asked: “Have you been away from church for a while? Do you want to reconnect? Do you want to find meaning?”
The video features the Advent hymn, “O come, o come Emmanuel” and images of family life and the Sacraments, and is part of Bishop Philip Egan’s drive to bring back the 80 per cent of British Catholics who no longer attend Mass.
In an appeal to Catholics throughout his diocese he said:
“Beg the Lord to pour out His Holy Spirit this Christmas on those who do not regularly practise their faith. Beg Him to give them a glimpse of the joy of the Gospel. Beg Him through their guardian angels and patron saints to rouse up within their hearts a passionate desire to be in full communion with Christ and His Church. Please pray for this intention every day over the next few weeks. Offer the Rosary for this and frequently pay visits to church to Jesus, present and active in the Blessed Sacrament.”

The Roman Catholic Church has changed the substantional meaning of the “Father”, the “Son” and the “Holy Spirit”. The Catholic trinity is not the Biblical trinity.
To be able to connect to the “Christ of the Roman Catholic Church”, you have to pray the Rosary and honor the Queen of Heaven. Otherwise you can not connect to the “Father” and do not honor the trinity.
According to Rome: If you do not pray the Rosary, to the “Holy mother of God” you are a “lapsed Catholic”.
According to Rome, all true Christians comes in this category of apostates. Because we do not pray in any other name than Jesus. To pray to others, let it be mothers, grandmothers and uncles of the Messiah, is a grave sin. And it is blasphemy against Father God. So the Roman Catholic “Father” is best understood to be the infallible Pope, who set the Word of God aside, and claim to be the “Holy Father”. Those who submit to such religious rebellion against the true Father, will face judgment.
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
To claim that the “Son” is present and active in the “Blessed Sacrament.” is also an abomination. Because the “Christ” of Rome can only be perfectly present in the round wafer that is being consumed by the priests, the Eucharist. Catholics accepts their “Christ” by swallowing him. That is surely a different Jesus than the true Messiah, since the true Messsiah moves into your heart and not into your stomach.
The Holy Spirit is the Vicar of Christ on Earth, sent by the Father to replace Jesus on Earth. Rome reject this, and claim the Pope is the Vicar of Christ. Those who accept such blasphemy against the Holy Spirt, commits a mortal sin, a sin that can never be forgiven. To accept the claimed authority of the Pope is a hundred per sent sure way towards the gates of Hell, in the name of “Christ”.
but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.
The large majority of Catholics in UK have been wise by staying away from the blasphemous Roman Catholic mass. Only by staying away they will be able to find peace with the true Jesus, and be saved from the coming wrath of God.
Be wise. Continue to stay away. And rather search for spirit filled Christians. Please fellowship with followers of Jesus the Messiah who desire to obey the Word of God.

TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER
JESUS IS LORD AMEN
Catholics unless they quit counting
beads (rosary) and turn whole heartily
to God in Jesus Christ they will not attain to the truth
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
The Roman Catholic religion is the largest cult in the World, with a “Christ” in its center. This cult has 1,1 billion followers, most of them indoctrinated by the Vatican priesthood since childhood. Every infant born into a RCC family is counted as a member.
When a man read the Bible, opens his heart, and are willing to obey the truth. Than the Holy Spirit will come, and set this person free. There seems to be a healty exodus of Roman Catholics in the UK. Let us hope for true repentence.
Love what you do,Ivar !
God bless you!
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
Thanks for blessing me. This kind of comments, will keep me on the blog.
To put a finer point on your terminology, brother: There are blasphemies against the Holy Spirit. Calling the Pope “Vicar” and “Paraclete” are blasphemies against the Spirit. (And they commit many other blasphemies against all three Persons of the godhead.). However, THE Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit is resisting His call to faith in Christ. The Lord coined the term when the Jews rejected the Spirit’s witness to the Lord’s identity and nature, thereby blocking their conversion.
Teaching people to rely on God plus the Church plus their own good works ends in resisting the call to faith in Christ, so in that sense, the RCC has codified The Blasphemy in its dogma. Therefore, the RCC does commit The Blasphemy, among many other blasphemies, though not in the way that you said.
My G-d said: call not man father but ME..to even think this evil cult can have people come to their confession and beforgiven as if they were asking G-d who is the only true forgiveness of sin. we who know CHIRST is the ONLY one we go to for forgiveness. Jeshua is the ONLY WAY the Truth and the life..and church.. we are the church..the catholic cult is drawing many back to hell and it is sad. and catholic teachers think that all their abominations are ok or the right way..if only people would realize reading G-d’s word that HE ISTHE WORD..and see how anyone who adds to or takes away even a dot or tittle is acursed and adds to it, is cursed. HIS WORD will set us all free if only they would just pick it up and read it. Millions are leaving catholic and many other cults and are seeing the truth, yet many more have joined the wide road to hell as well. now a days, most will not listen..keep praying..we are ambasadors for CHIRST and we must reach out..If we don’t their blood will be on our hands..
