Are The Jedi Practicing Catholics?

Are The Jedi Practicing Catholics?

Well, yeah! Well, sort of. Let me explain!

Here, at the smoke-and-mirrors cyber-reality we call
"The Catholic Jedi Academy"
our "Academy" is make-believe.

But WE are not!
We are not cyber-artificial-pretend-Catholics.

We are real Catholics:
Very, very Catholic Catholics:
With no excuses, regrets, or doubts;
With a deep commitment to -- and preference for --
the Truth Our Lord Jesus and Our Church reveal.

Very very Catholic Catholics are like "Jedi Masters," or like Academicians:
persons who are unabashedly committed to improving
through Our Headmaster's instruction, coaching, tutoring, training, drilling, and guidance.

Very, very Catholic Catholics firmly encourage one another
toward a constant and vibrant desire for deeper knowledge of Christ
and fuller membership in His "Academy" -- His Church, His Kingdom, His Heavenly Court.

Very very Catholic Catholics, like "Jedi,"
are willing and able to take stands, speak the truth, and to do battle with
the selfishness, lies and evil that threaten
to harm, destroy and disfigure human life in all its stages.

We "Catholic Jedi" are not nasty, confrontational bullies!
Rather, we are committed... intense... amplified... focused...
and ready to do spiritual and intellectual combat for our Catholic Faith. Because ...
Faithful followers of Christ in the Church are at war in this world.
We always have been.
And there's no truce on the way; no armistice,
where the warring parties agree to stop fighting.
We will not see that coming on the horizon.
We are and remain at war -- until we see Our Lord Jesus Christ
coming on the horizon for His Second and Final Coming!

(Please hurry, Lord!)
The Catholic Church's spiritual battles are collective and individualized.
Our spiritual battles continued after Our Lord Jesus ascended to the Father.
“Continued,” because Our Lord Himself started the war of grace, love and life.
He taught the Church how to do combat with
A Sinful World
(The one we mutated into its present form!)
Sinful Flesh
And The Devil
(Yes, he really exists! Yoda does not).

But, hey! Don't get discouraged!
Don't forget that we win the war in the end!

Until then, we handle the skirmishes and incursions of sin and Satan.
And as the "clean up" battles progress, a sense of humor and of healthy satire
help keep us Catholics sane and ever hopeful.

That's why you see Pope Benedict XVI holding a "cross/saber"
as he guides us - Bishops, Clergy and Laity - toward success
in our combat with the world, the flesh, the Devil
and any source of lies and confusion
which distort and deny the truth of the Gospel and the
irreplaceable value of every human person!

Welcome, Jedi Academicians
The Catholic Jedi Academy!
