How to Explain & Defend the Catholic Faith

Can you answer these questions?

  • Why do you Catholics call your priests "father" when Mt 23:9 clearly says "call no man father"
  • Why do you Catholics worship the Eucharist? Isn't it just a symbolic piece of bread?
  • How can you believe in God when there is so much suffering in the world?
  • Why are Catholics opposed to abortion?
  • Why is Mary such a big deal to Catholics?
  • Aren't there errors and contradictions in the Bible?
  • Do Catholics believe in the "Rapture"?

Most Catholics can't. But you don't have to be tongue-tied the next time your non-Catholic friend asks tough questions like these. Learn how to explain your faith clearly, defend it charitably, and share it confidently.
