Thus says the Lord: When Israel was a child I loved him; out of Egypt I called my son Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms; I drew them with human cords, with bands of love; I fostered them like one who raises an infant to his cheeks; yet, though I stopped to feed my child, they did not know that I was their healer My heart is overwhelmed, my pity is stirred I will not give vent to my blazing anger, I will not destroy Ephraim again; for I am God & not a man, the Holy One present among you; I will not let the flames consume you
Isaiah 12 You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation
Brothers & Sisters: To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ, & to bring to light for all what is the plan of the mystery hidden from ages past in God who created all things, so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church to the principalities & authorities in the Heavens This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness of speech & confidence of access through faith in him For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in Heaven & on Earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, & that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, rooted & grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth & length & height & depth, & to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with the fullness of God
St Jn 19
Since it was preparation day, in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, for the Sabbath day of that week was a solemn one, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken & they be taken down So the soldiers came & broke the legs of the first & then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus But when they came to Jesus & saw that the was already dead, they did not break his legs, but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, & immediately Blood & water flowed out An eyewitness has testified, & his testimony is true; he knows that he is speaking the truth, so that you also may come to believe For this happened so that the scripture passage might be fulfilled: Not a bone of it will be broken & again another passage says: They will look upon him whom they have pierced
God's presence dwelling among us... Jesus would not leave us orphans by ascending into Heaven and not leaving His Presence, which is found in His Church, the Roman Catholic Church 24/7.
Then we are shown that
"the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church"
For as much as it depends on you, live at peace with others.

The sole purpose of the Romanized Catholic church is to provide as many young people as possible for its priests and nuns to abuse.
Hence its stand on birth control, it's complicity in the theft of 30k children in Spain, etc.
Join the Catholic Church as a priest and you can take a world tour and have sex with as many boys as you want of different ethnicities! And the church will keep you moving around so you never have to worry about the authorities!
That's the church that TruthSetsFree wants you to join.... how sickening!
