Away from Catholicism (Orazio Tabone)

Hello, my name is Orazio, I was born in a catholic family and I live in Mainz. I’m 53 years old, married with three children. I want to tell you briefly how I met Jesus. In 1991, during the Gulf war, my wife and I wondered whether there’ll have been a Third World War or not and where would we be going after the death. We were both confused, trying to understand if our religion was the right one. We prayed God together, asking Him to show us the truth. One day, on the telephone with my sister (who lives in Italy) she told me she had converted to Christianity. I answered. “Since I’m Catholic, I’m a Christian too”. She explained that during the summer holidays she’d have illustrated it better. Landed in Italy, she told us about the Word of God. She introduced me and my wife to Antonio Caruso and to his wife. The strange thing was that he didn’t speak, but listened to me.I told him I’d prayed the saints all my life, I blessed before my meals, as I thought it was right. Antonio clarified me that God didn’t want me to pray the saints; He wanted me to pray directly Him, using my own simple words. He told me Jesus had died on the cross for my sins and he continued saying that if I’d have believed with all my heart that Jesus had died in my place for my sins and if I’d have recognized Him as my personal Savior, He would have given me the salvation and the right to become His son (John 1:12-13).  

John 3:16 ”For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

 John 1:12 “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God”

 So now, thank God, I know where I’ll go after this life.
