The People's Catholic makes it its mission to better familiarize Catholics as well as non-Catholics with the Catholic Church. In our Information Age, we are certainly exposed to a lot of great, helpful information. However, there is also a lot of confusing misinformation. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, I shall offer perspectives to help advance one's understanding. You'll find from time to time reading, audio, and public event recommendations to assist you in your growth.
At age 18, I began to ask a very straight forward, serious question: How can so many Christian faiths exists, be so different on scripture and history, but all claim to teach the truth ? I came from a Baptist home, but I began a journey that lead me to the Catholic Church. In Fall 1994 at NYU, I was enrolled in a class which had a discussion on the Protestant Reformation. At that time, I was already enrolled in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program . Although I knew I made the right decision, I did not know how to successfully defend the faith. I thank God for that experience because it was His way of saying "Don't just be Catholic,Chris. Know and understand why you do what you do. Be a cause and purpose Catholic". With the guidance of God and my sponsor, I began a journey over the years to read and listen. The Lord has certainly blessed me beyond belief.
I thank God Our Father first and foremost for His inspiration on this special journey. Thank you to my sponsor from many years ago, Father Gregory Keeler. I also want thank my friend from high school, Marek Dojs. Marek always shared his faith with excitement but never tried to convince me it was the right position. Also , I want to thank the multiple authors over the years who have molded my faith.
