The deacon at our parish used the word “insurrectionist” to describe Jesus. I know you can’t comment on the homily, but would you say “insurrectionist” is an accurate word to describe Jesus?

The RCIA candidates/catechumens leave Mass when it gets to the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Why do the baptized ones have to leave?

My Protestant friend says the Catechism says men will become gods (CCC 460). What’s the deal with that?

I’m a Catholic but I’m also a 32nd degree Freemason. I think the papal bulls misrepresent what freemasonry is about. Do you think the Church will ever revisit the question of whether Catholics can be freemasons?

"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."
