About

Hello,

Welcome to my blog! This blog will be my playground for ideas, muses and commentary about things that I find interesting.

As you will discover I am in love with Christ and the Church that He founded, the Catholic Church.  I hope to engage and challenge the culture and give witness of Christ’s love and mercy.

  1. Thanks for visiting our Blog Intrepid Muses and it’s good to hear you believe in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

    Yes I too believe in God’s universal Catholic Church, not meaning of course the Roman Catholic Church, as we know that came later but God’s Church, which is World wide and includes people from every Country and Denomination as well as house Churches etc it’s of the heart it’s not made of bricks and mortar.

    Take Care Intrepid Muses and see you on the Blog.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

    1. Thanks for the comment! It is always great to grow in fellowship with other fellow Christians. I hope that through our discussion and postings we may learn from each other and grow closer to Christ.

      The historical claims of the Catholic Church are witness by the writings of the early Church fathers. These are Christians that knew the apostles and continue their work of proclaiming the word of God to all corners of the Earth. As Cardinal Newman, a 19-century Anglican, convert to the Catholic Church, said: “To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant.”

      The moving writings of St. Ignatius of Antioch who was a disciple of the apostle John and was martyred in Rome very early during the second century showed a very catholic early church.

      Just to give you one example, in his letter to Smyrnaeans about A.D. 110, he defends the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist:

      “they abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, flesh which suffered for our sins and which the Father, in his goodness, raised up again”.

      There is a continuity of teaching from the early father of the Church all the way to the Pope Francis that has been safeguarded by the Holy Spirit and promise by Christ to Peter (Matthew 16:17-19).

      I really appreciate your comment and I will certainly be following your blog. God Bless!!!

      1. By the way are you guys really from Australia? Yes I should have guess it by the tittle of your blog! That is so cool! One day I want to visit the great country of yours!

        Cheers!

      2. Hi Caleb, Yes we are really Australians and we have visited your great Country that is if you live in America.

        Sorry but as I said I’m not talking about the Roman Catholic Church which was started by Constantine with the Edict of Milan in AD 313, effectively lifting the ban on Christianity but who later in AD 325, had to call the Council of Nicea in an attempt to unify Christianity.

        There is Teaching in every Denomination that is not confirmed in Scripture including in the Roman Catholic Church. I do not listen to man’s fleshy understanding, only to Jesus as He leads us into all Truth. (1John2:26-28 – 1John5:20 – Matthew10:26-28)

        As we know there are True believers in every Denomination but also those who are not but as Prophesied in the Scriptures, God will call all His Children who He knows as His together and there will be real Unity but this is not referring to a physical joining together but in heart, mind and purpose and this is from all Denominations and World wide. He will even rescue some from Pagan and Cult teaching. Jesus Christ is The Truth and like a sharp two edged sword, will cut away all error.

        Blessings – Anne

      3. Dear Anne,

        G’Day! sorry but I could not resists! I appreciate your comments.

        I do disagree that the Catholic Church was founded through the edit of Milan, which simply established religious freedom in the Roman Empire and did not established any religion. The historical claims of the Catholic Church can be corroborated by history through the consistency of its teaching throughout 2,000 years of history.

        Although we may disagree on this point, I am still glad that we found each other and I ask you to keep me in your prayers!

        Cheers,

        Caleb

  2. Sorry Caleb, you are just not understanding what I’m referring to which is not anyone Denomination, including the Roman Catholic Church but God’s Catholic Universal Church which is mentioned in The New Testament, including in Revelation, it is of the heart not the flesh.

    I never agree to disagree, God tells us not to do this as it just leads to division we are to take our differences to Him because we are to be of one heart, mind and purpose, Paul warned about division and said who do we follow Christ or man.

    Blessings Anne

  3. The internet is a wonderful tool isn’t it? I’m glad I found your blog today, I really hope you keep posting regularly because I don’t have time to go back through your archives although I’d like to!

    I’m also from Australia, and I’m Catholic – no arguments here 🙂

    1. Dear Marilyn,

      I am glad that you found my blog! I love what you said: “I’m also from Australia, and I’m Catholic – no arguments here”. One of my favorite Catholic apologiest says the cure to our secular world is happy Catholics and I cannot agree more! Thank you for your kind words…I just hope that I can somehow meet your expectations.

      It just come to my mind what Tolkien wrote about adventures in The Lord of the Rings:

      “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

      J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

      I feel this blog is my going out of my door…steping into a great adventure.

      Cheers,

      Caleb

  4. Hello Caleb. Thank you for taking a look around my blog and deciding to follow. Visits and comments of any type are always appreciated.

    Have a nice Sunday,

    Jack

  5. Dear Caleb,

    For some reason, every time I reply to one of your emails I get a ‘delivery failed’ notice. I’ve tried just starting a new message and pasting in your address, but it doesn’t seem to work either. Anyway, here is my reply…

    Many thanks for the comments here, and I hope you enjoy those posts when you read them 🙂 Also, thank you for your faithful witness in the last couple of posts at your blog – re the March For Life etc – very inspiring!

    Michael

    1. Hey Michael,

      Thank you for the heads up! I will check my e-mail account and thank you for the encouragement! You and Richard (Age of Discernment Catholic blog, check it out he is awesome) are my models for blogging. I failed miserably because I cannot be as concise and casual as Richard or as intellectually deep as you. Keep on going!

      1. Thank you for the very kind compliments Caleb, but you do yourself a great disservice – far from failing miserably, you have added some wonderful reflections to the ‘blogosphere’ 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  6. Hi Caleb,

    I tried a few times to email you at your address but it didn’t work. I wanted to let you know that if you’d like to reach me apart from the blog my email is constrainedvision at yahoo. You can go ahead and delete this comment if you want.

    Take care my friend!

    -Ben
