What is the purpose and meaning of life? 

The answer, if you’ve seen Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is 42. 

In reality, the meaning of life is to know God, love God, and serve God. The goal of life is to grow in holiness, to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ. The goal of life is to get to Heaven.

I believe in God. I believe that He is knowable by human reason alone. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Eternal Word of God Incarnate, born of the Virgin Mary. He handed Himself over to death as a willing and perfect sacrifice to die for the redemption of our sins. He is our Savior. I believe that He founded His Catholic Church upon the Apostles, especially upon the Rock, St. Peter. The bishops and Pope of today are the successors of the Apostles.

My hope is the promise of Heaven. My faith is in Jesus Christ, directed to the Father, by the power and working of the Holy Spirit. And the source and summit of my life is perfect love, especially present to us in the Holy Eucharist.

I am open to dialogue with others of differing viewpoints. I believe that dialogue is preferable to conflict, but I will not back down from conflict when truth and charity dictate it. Always feel free to comment on my posts, but please keep it charitable. Gratuitous profanity or disrespect will not be tolerated.

Enjoy reading!
