My husband was married in the 70’s in a Presbyterian Church (a priest was co-presiding). He has looked in to getting an annulment. The people told him to send in $10,000 and just say that his former wife didn’t want to have children. He doesn’t feel right about lying like that. What should my husband do?

When my priest baptized my son, the water only touched his legs...was that valid? I went ahead and conditionally baptized him. Was that wrong?

Can you explain indulgences?

I just graduated high school. My teacher said we were allowed to receive communion from Eastern Orthodox church any time, but you guys said it was only under certain circumstances. Who is right?

I’m in a debate with an atheist. He points the the discrepancy between Matthew 28:16 where Jesus tells the Apostles to meet him on the mountain in Galilee, which doesn’t match up with the other accounts of what Jesus told them to do. He also says that a Jewish writer would never have written about the sabbath as the word is used in Matthew 28:1. How can I respond?

Does the Church still adhere to the rule of St. Augustine which was reiterated in Prudentissimus Deus regarding the interpretation of scripture?
