  1. Do 'No Soliciting' signs work on Jehovah’s Witnesses?

    A graffiti artist may believe that what he does is art. Society disagrees and prosecutes them accordingly. I have news for you. Society considers you all "SOLICITORS". Usually unwelcome at that. It doesn't matter what YOU think you are ... in the end it matter what everyone ELSE THINKS YOU ARE.
  2. Can Jehovah’s Witnesses be called Christians?

    I would say actions speak louder than words. The Catholic Church runs hospitals, food banks, shelters that assist the entire world and have been doing so for over a thousand years. The JW's make a big deal about sending water to people in Houston who have lost thier homes..... and by that I mean THEIR OWN PEOPLE..... Talk to me when you guys are actually working to help humanity in general instead of focusing on everyone's eternal damnation. Jesus fed the hungry and took care of the sick.... EVEN IF THEY WERE CHRISTIANS. Jehovah's Witnesses are told not to donate to charities and give all money to make watchtowers that have been calling for Armageddon since 1879. Try actually LIVING as a Christian and then come talk to me about whether or not you can be called so.
  3. I heard that you guys add words that aren't in the manuscripts making it your "interpretation" .... and in your latest version you also conveniently added the word "Governing Body" to it that was not there in your previous versions.... supposedly to make everyone think your current corporate structure is somehow scripturally based. Do you know what the scriptures say will happen to someone that even "adds a word"?
  4. What can Catholics learn from Jehovah’s Witnesses?

    @Melinda Mills You guys are barely 150 years old and are continually changing what you actually "believe"..... For instance, you guys claimed 1975 the end was to come yet here we are alive and breathing. I would turn the question around and ask what could you learn from us Catholics. We have almost 2,000 years of history and teachings to offer. I believe your leadership has also visited the Vatican before and were very impressed. Our art alone is historical and inspirational to millions.

  6. Sacramentals (Blessings)

    Quinceañera Among several Spanish-speaking countries and among many Hispanics in the United States there is the custom of celebrating the passage from childhood to adolescence with a ritual that expresses thanksgiving to God for the gift of life and that asks for a blessing from God for the years ahead. This celebration may take place within Mass or outside of Mass. Resources in this section respond to questions and address issues related to the liturgical celebration of the Quinceanera.
  7. Sacramentals (Blessings)

    Persons "The Christian family is . . . where God's children learn to pray 'as the Church' and to persevere in prayer" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2685). As a human and Christian family, some of our earliest prayers focus on the people in our lives. Prayers for people often highlight important moments in the life of a family, school, or Church. Prayers for people remind us that, whether in times of grief or joy, God is always with us.
  8. Sacramentals (Blessings)

    Objects We bless objects for many reasons. Blessed icons or other images or objects in the household to use as a part of regular prayer Tools or objects that provide an occasion to give thanks and recognize the joy and responsibility of human labor, recreation, and devotion A vehicle that makes it possible to overcome distance and come together for meetings, visits, and other forms of social contact Boats and other vehicles that are essential to our livelihood and to protect those who use them
  9. Sacramentals (Blessings)

    Blessings are called "sacramentals" because they prepare us to receive the grace of the sacraments and help us to grow to be more like Christ (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1670). Blessings consist of prayer, Scripture, and sometimes a special ritual sign (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1668). People are accustomed to seeing bishops, priests, and deacons blessing objects or persons in the name of the Church. Indeed, "the more a blessing concerns ecclesial and sacramental life, the more is its administration reserved to the ordained ministry" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1669), often with the participation of the local parish community gathered in prayer. Whenever an ordained minister is present, he should be called upon to give the blessing. However, there are other blessings, like the ones contained in Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers, that can be prayed by anyone who has been baptized, "in virtue of the universal priesthood, a dignity they possess because of their baptism and confirmation" (Book of Blessings, no. 18). The blessings given by laypersons are exercised because of their special office, such as parents on behalf of their children. Right after telling his disciples to "love your enemies, do good to those who hate you," Jesus instructs them to "bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you" (Lk 6:28). St. Paul echoes the Lord's command when he exhorts the Romans to "bless those who persecute [you], bless and do not curse them" (Rom 12:14). St. Peter urges that each time we are on the receiving end of evil, we should return "a blessing, because to this you were called, that you might inherit a blessing" (1 Pt 3:9). This is why the Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that "every baptized person is called to be a 'blessing,' and to bless" (no. 1669; see Gn 12:2; Lk 6:28; Rom 12:14; 1 Pt 3:9). Like the Lord into whom they have been baptized, parents should bless and pray for their children. Each one of us should remember the sick and those who suffer. Each time we gather around the family table, we should bless God and the food he has given us. On special occasions, we will observe the traditions of the season, sanctifying by prayer and blessing all the seasons of grace that God has given to us. From Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers
