I am discerning becoming Catholic - but when I listen to Catholic radio or EWTN, it talks about being “catholic” and the institution of the Church, not about the personal relationship with Jesus. How do Catholics approach a personal relationship with Jesus?  

Is it okay to go the reception of a wedding that isn’t between two Catholics?

Is the pope’s canonization of a saint infallible?

When and where was the first Mass held?

How can I fully give a sin to God?

If one frequently visits the Blessed Sacrament, does it help our relationship with Him?

What are the Nephilim?

If the priests says the words of consecration for the wine, yet is holding the bread, is that a valid communion?

How do I defend against Rev 22:18-19?

"Tim Staples, a former Assemblies of God youth pastor, is a convert to the Catholic Church. During his days as a Protestant, he was convinced that the Catholic Church and most of its teachings were ""unbiblical,"" and he used many biblical arguments trying to demonstrate that. Now, as a Catholic, he is a leading defender of the Catholic Church and in this book he gives you step-by-step answers to fourteen of the most common arguments thrown at Catholics."
