I was visiting Patheos recently to read as usual, (great site check it out!) and I came across a post called “Ten Reasons the Catholic Church is Cool”. The title caught my attention and drew me in so I had to read this article. The author’s list included many things that I thought were definitely cool, so I am going to share a few of them with you.
My favorite reason that the Catholic Church is cool is that there are some traditions we still practice that were created in 33 AD. That is a long time! This wasn’t necessarily a fact I wasn’t aware of, but the post reminded me how rich in tradition the Church really is. A funny one that they included was about Saint Francis of Assisi. Saint Francis of Assisi advocated and spread peace and love before the hippies did.
