14-Year Church Attendance Study Shows Reduced Suicide Rate for Catholics

May 10, 2020

"I am the Way, the Truth and the LIFE," said Jesus. Jesus gives Himself fully to man in the Catholic Church. This is the WAY in which He chooses to be present in our lives. Catholics who attend Mass often (and experience His LIFE) are less likely to take their lives than any one else! I want everyone to become Catholic! I want everyone to experience happiness. I want everyone to experience the fullness of LIFE!

Here is a link to an article about the study I refer to in my homily: https://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-church-attendance-suicide-20160629-snap-story.html
