"I listen to Catholic Answers Live every morning and evening. You have changed my life!"
~ Patricia, Bremerton, WA
Could I really sell my soul?
In high school, some friends and I were goofing around, and I “sold my soul” to one of them for something simple. I wrote out and signed a piece of paper saying that my friend would take ownership of my soul. Do I still have my soul, or has ownership of it really been transferred to the guy I sold it to?
The soul is the principle of life. You have it—or you wouldn’t be alive. It is impossible for us to own another’s soul.
The Russian Church And The Papacy "Vladimir Soloviev's true legacy consists of three simple propositions.
Jesus Christ instituted the universal jurisdiction and infallible teaching authority of the Papacy as a perpetual gift to His Church
Apart from the Papacy, the Eastern churches will always remain what they are now: ethnic, national churches, totally independent and disunited
Only in union with Rome can the separated Eastern churches become truly Catholic
Seldom, if ever, has this Catholic doctrine of the Church been stated more eloquently, more persuasively in an apologetic context than by Vladimir Soloviev. It is for this very reason that Catholic Answers felt it necessary to bring The Russian Church and the Papacy back into print, and recover this valuable resource for generations to come."
"Do as you wish; for we are Christians, and we do not sacrifice to idols."
~ Six companions of Justin Martyr, martyrs all; speaking to the Prefect Rusticus after he threatened them with "torture without mercy" unless they sacrificed to the Roman "gods;" from the trial transcript by Tatian (A.D. 165).
