Jesus came to save the world, not to condemn it.
There are certain things that we all long for in life—happiness, love, truth, goodness, beauty, and healing. We challenge you to consider the possibility that you can experience these things most fully as a disciple of Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church he founded. God is real, and He desires to fill your heart with lasting peace. The reality is that we are all broken in some way, but regardless of where you've been or what you've done, you have a chance to live the meaningful life you are searching for and to be accepted by a God who loves you unconditionally.
What difference does the existence of God and the love of Jesus make in my life?
The fact that God is real and that Jesus, the Son of God who became man, was resurrected from the dead makes all the difference. Is God real or not real? Was Jesus Christ raised from the dead or not? These are important questions that can change the course of our lives. If you desire to conform to reality and to truth, then answering these questions is of infinite importance, and you can begin your search for answers here. God is the answer to the hole that exists in the human heart, to that longing for “something more.” Find him, and you’ll find the meaning and purpose in your life you are searching for.

Why can’t I just be spiritual, but not religious?
If you come to believe in Jesus and in the Word of God, you will find in Scripture that Jesus Christ started a religion (Matthew 4:9, Mark 5:6, Luke 4:8, John 4:23) and founded an authoritative and visible Church with a worshipping community (Matthew 16:18, Matthew 18:15-17, Hebrews 10:25). The Bible itself makes clear that picking it up and trying to interpret it all on one’s own is not recommended (Acts 8:27-31, 2 Peter 1:20, 2 Peter 3: 15-16). Jesus never intended for us to live our spiritual lives apart from an authoritative body. Cling to the Church he gave us, and you will find the truth in all its beauty and clarity.
