Catholic Answers Director of Apologetics Tim Staples and I were bouncing around ideas for blog posts when he told me of two common, related questions he receives while on the road speaking for Catholic Answers. Often, Catholics he meets are extremely frustrated with the quality of the liturgy at the parishes they attend. They are on edge at Mass, wondering what novelty their priest is going to dream up next. Why can't priests just "say the black, do the red"?—a cri de coeur...
“I found Catholic Answers Live, and was engaged immediately. ‘Hooked’ is the right word. I was astounded at the things I had mis-learned. God bless you and I hope you never go off the air.”

"Let us go, my friends, for the sake of God."
~ Father Captier, Dominican superior of the College of Arcueil, to his 12 companions (Dominican priests and laymen), imprisoned by the Paris Commune for being prominent members of the Church, as they were being ordered into the street one by one. There they were murdered and defiled by the mob on May 25, 1871, just hours before the commune stronghold fell to the regular army that was advancing from Versailles.
