To Catholics with Love

Encountering the One who paid such a price for our salvation and learning to “worship Him in spirit and truth” (John 4:23)

My Years as a Catholic

I was raised Catholic by parents fervent in the faith. As a child, I received the sacraments: Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation. I went to parochial school and served as an altar boy (second from the left).

Years later, at a pivotal point, I decided to embrace the sacrificial and devoted life of a monk. On my way to the monastery, though, a close encounter with death and a miraculous, divine intervention spurred me to reevaluate my plans and reexamine my belief system.

One important conclusion I reached was that Jesus did not tell His followers, “Separate yourself from the human race and live a cloistered life.” Rather, He commissioned them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature”— (Mark 16:15). Fulfilling this charge has been my passion and goal for over 50 years.

With love toward God and others,

During my years as a Catholic, the concept of “praying to the saints” was a dominant theme. I admired the saints. I studied their lives. I pondered the amazing ways God used them. I never questioned if “praying to the saints” was a viable practice. I just accepted it...

This unique book, The Beliefs of the Catholic Church, was written by a former Catholic who loves Catholics. It asks relevant questions concerning every major Catholic doctrine, including: the belief that the Catholic Church is the one true church, the position and authority of the pope, the concept of an exclusive priesthood, the necessity of infant baptism, the sacrament of confession, the requirement of penance, the seal of the Holy Spirit through confirmation, praying to the saints, purgatory, indulgences, devotion to Mary, the belief of transubstantiation (holy communion) and much more. Every Catholic needs to read this book. Every non-Catholic who is interested in understanding the beliefs of the Catholic Church, would also be benefited greatly.
