Catholic Knowledge

The Catholic Church has been devoted to spreading truth since she was founded by Christ 2,000 plus years ago. The late Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “It is easy to find truth; it is hard to face it, and harder still to follow it.” Pray that Christ will lead you to find truth, and that your heart will be open to the truth wherever you may find it.

What Can You Do?

Much of the pro-life movement focuses on the important task of changing laws. Others in the pro-life community emphasize communicating information, hoping to change minds. But there is a third approach that has enormous untapped potential -- working to change hearts. And when it comes to reaching people's hearts, movies are among the most powerful tools God has given us. Movies tell stories -- and its stories that engage us; a truth Jesus often used in telling His parables. Through well-drawn characters, emotional music, and a compelling story line, a movie can create a world that touches the human heart like no other form of communication. Alison's Choice​ is a feature length movie that will touch hearts and save lives by encouraging young people to choose life.

Every century and culture has interpreted Mary in different ways. You could almost drown in the various ways that the Christian tradition has honored Mary! Consider the paintings, sculptures, icons, music, liturgies, feasts, spiritual writings, theologies, official doctrines. George Tavard wrote a book recently, and his title gets it exactly right: The Thousand Faces of the Virgin Mary.Cont.

In Search of the Real Mary

Faith isn't one of the many components of life. It has everything to do with the happiness we were made for. Jesus didn't come to take away our "fun." In his own words, "I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete!" (John 15:11)...

As James held the map, his father pointed at the line that ran through Glacier National Park in Montana. “We’re right here—near Triple Divide Peak,” his father said. They’d stopped to get their bearings while backpacking along the Continental Divide Trail. Looking up, his father indicated a rugged mountain ahead of them. “There it is. An interesting place!”
James gazed at the mountain. “Why is it so interesting?” he asked as they resumed their hike.

“It’s the spot where two divides meet,” his father said. “We’re on the Great Divide. That runs north and south across the continent, through this mountain. The Northern Divide starts at this mountain and runs east. These divides determine which way rainwater flows. Water that falls on the summit of Triple Divide Peak can go in three directions. It can go west to the Pacific Ocean, north to the Arctic Ocean, or east to the Atlantic Ocean.”

Making choices can be hard. Especially when you have many options! How will you know which way to go? If you listen carefully, God will tell you. His Spirit will whisper to yours. The Holy Spirit can speak to you directly, or through a Bible passage you read, or through a godly person you turn to for advice.
Bible Verse: Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21
