SPIRITUS Missionary Opportunity!

Do you know a young adult who lives out their faith and is eager to share it with others?

SPIRITUS is looking for Catholic young adults, between 20-29, to join the SPIRITUS missionary team this August. SPIRITUS ignites the faith in thousands of young Catholics through retreats and parish youth ministry each year! Missionaries live in community and travel to parishes and schools throughout Wisconsin; receiving training, formation, spiritual direction, lodging, food, a monthly allowance, health insurance and a $3,000 stipend upon completion of the 9-month program. It is a unique opportunity to live out the mission of our Catholic faith, serve our Lord and help the next generation of Catholics grow in faith.

Why Catholic Bibles have more books than Protestant Bibles

The Catholic Church is entirely responsible for the composition of the Bible, which books are included, as well as the breakdown of the chapters and verses. There are 73 “books” in the Catholic Bible and 66 in the Protestant Bible. Protestants removed seven books because some verses were inconsistent with their theology.

Martin Luther removed Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach and Baruch. He attempted to remove James and Revelation, but this was rejected by his followers and those two books stayed. Catholics are often accused of adding seven books, but despite this common belief, it is false. Older, pre-Protestant, Catholic translations of the Bible include them.
