About this ebook

Introduction to Catholicism for Adults is a book that sets out the basics of why we are here and where we are going. Every baptized person has been called personally to serve God and love his neighbor. The goal of our lives is personal sanctity, and the destination is Heaven. Jesus established his Church to map out the way for everyone, and he left his Holy Spirit to guarantee that the Church will not fail in that role. This book is a part of your journey on the road to sanctity. Seek to understand its message so that you will be able to complete the journey in the way Jesus desires in the time he has given you. It is said that the human soul loves adventure, and your life will indeed present many opportunities for adventure. Remember why you are here, what the great goal is, and take as your motto, “Sanctity will be my most important adventure.”
