About Us/Contact Us
This website, CatholicsLoveJesus.com, was started near the beginning of the YEAR OF FAITH (October 11, 2012 to November 24, 2013) of the universal Catholic Church, as declared by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
The name of this website, Catholics Love Jesus, was chosen because some people do not know or believe that Catholics are Christians, but Catholics are indeed Christians and Catholics love Jesus and worship God-the three Persons of the Blessed Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
This website primarily contains personal writings and reflections of Catholics, who strive to be faithful to God, the hierarchy, and the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.

NOTE: The Ordinary of Lansing, Michigan, Bishop Earl Boyea, issued a Pastoral Letter – Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord – initiating a YEAR OF PRAYER for the Diocese of Lansing – Aug. 3, 2012 to Dec. 9, 2013. Bishop Boyea addresses the urgent need for evangelization. He invites us to join him in evangelizing our world (p.7). He invites us to allow the Holy Spirit to take us beyond our normal lives and go where we have never gone before (no. 12). He invites us to seek out the lost sheep to invite them back to the fold (no. 39). We encourage you to read this excellent pastoral letter and to find ways to share the Catholic faith.
NOTE: The Apostolic Letter of Pope Benedict XVI declaring the YEAR OF FAITH is entitled, Porta Fidei (Door of Faith), and is available at: http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/motu_proprio/documents/hf_ben-xvi_motu-proprio_20111011_porta-fidei.html
Pope Benedict XVI wrote: “We will have the opportunity to profess our faith in the Risen Lord in our cathedrals and in the churches of the whole world; in our homes and among our families, so that everyone may feel a strong need to know better and to transmit to future generations the faith of all times. Religious communities as well as parish communities, and all ecclesial bodies old and new, are to find a way, during this Year, to make a public profession of the Credo. (Porta Fidei, No. 8) To rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed, and to reflect on the act of faith, is a task that every believer must make his own….” (Porta Fidei, No. 9)
