Tim Staples answers:

Aren’t all believers priests?

How does John 6, “unless you eat the flesh of the son of man you have no life in you,” apply to Protestants?

Is there a Catholic Catechism study guide, or is it meant to be more of a reference book?

Why is there such a difference between Masses (for example, the New Mass and the Latin Mass)?
