"And you shall give testimony, because you are with me from the beginning." (John 15:27)

Philosophers say the action serves the truth better than talking. And indeed, a good Christian can be recognized by his good conduct, morals and by witnessing Christ through Catholic Action. This is the essence of Catholicism. Serious reflection comes to mind in response to modernist's slogan that in what someone believes is the matter of personal choice. Supporters of this erroneous opinion will never become witnesses for Christ and His Church. Only deep conviction that the only true faith is Roman Catholicism makes the base for faithful life, is the motif for Christian perfection, sacrifice and every action to serve Christ and His Church. The best examples of living Catholic faith are provided by lives of the apostles, martyrs, missionaries and champions of Catholic Action. Those who support false ecumenism will never obtain the blessing of true faith and faithful life. The prophet warns them: "How long do you halt between two sides? (3 Kings 18:21). Also those who are not quick enough to recognize and reject false teachings immediately are on their way to fall into atheism. False ecumenism is a very dangerous and erroneous idea which is against common sense and is already defeated by Christ and life itself. It cannot be possible to believe that all religions can be equally good and true for there is only one truth. For example, the wheel cannot be both square and round, Jesus Christ cannot be both the Son of God and ordinary man only who made both seven and only two Sacraments. We have to be careful not to fall under the banner of false 'truth' of those who are vicious enemies of Jesus Christ. We must follow the Apostle who said: "That Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts" (Ephesians 3:17).
