If you watch television this week you may see an advertisement called “Home” that was created by Catholics Come Home ®. Listen carefully and you will hear the narrator say: “It’s our refuge from chaos... It’s a place where the broken receive healing, and repentant hearts find mercy.” These are familiar desires for all of us. We have all felt a longing for a loving community and a place where we are always welcome and always forgiven. This desire can be fulfilled when you have a place that feels like your best vision of a home.
During this Christmas Season, the Catholic Church welcomes every person into a parish, which can become a safe refuge and offer each person comfort.
