CAN YOU ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?
*Why do Catholics call your priest “father” when the Bible clearly says “call no man father” (Mt.23:9)?
*Why do Catholics stress good works when the Bible says salvation is by faith alone (Eph.2:8-9)?
*Why do Catholics pray to Mary and the Saints when the Bible says Jesus is the “one mediator between God and man” (1 Tim.2:5)?
*Why do Catholics believe in Purgatory when the word “purgatory” is not found in the Bible?
Most Catholics can't. But you don't have to be tongue-tied the next time your children, relatives or non-Catholic friend asks one of these questions. Learn to explain your faith clearly, defend it charitably, and share it confidently by being a part of the Apologetics Group in our Parish. You are invited attend our meetings on Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. (following the 9 a.m. Mass) in the Parish Hall. Regular monthly meetings have been planned for the third Saturday of each month, but are subject to change. For further information, please call the Parish Office, 905-683-1533.
“But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; 16 yet do it with gentleness and reverence” 1 Peter : 15-16
