Tim Staples answers:

Am I allowed to miss Mass during a school trip to Ireland?

The Catholic Church claims to have the fullness of truth -- how can this claim not be made by other Christian churches?

How can we not have an infinite series of finite causes? Why is it necessary to have an uncaused cause?

What is an ex cathedra statement? Has one ever been made at a general council?

Is it okay to choose to vacation in a place where you know you won’t have access to Catholic Mass?

When Protestants ask me if I am saved, am I right to respond that I am on a spiritual journey?

Are miracles alone a continual expression of the Church’s authority?

In the biblical account of Jesus being lost in the temple, isn’t he sinning?

Five Non-Negotiables
This groundbreaking CD set by Tim Staples is an expansion of Catholic Answers’ acclaimed Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics. And it will help you vote in an informed manner consistent with Catholic moral teaching and fundamental human rights. All five moral issues discussed on these CDs—abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning, and same-sex “marriage”—have been definitively declared by the Church to be objectively and absolutely immoral. And you, as a faithful Catholic, are required to vote against all five and—with only rare exceptions—to vote against politicians who support any of them.
