I am honored that you are visiting my web site. "Sharing the Truth in Love" (Eph. 4:15), I am always striving to find new ways to get my message out to those seeking Truth. This web site allows me to reach people I may never have been able to contact before.
Please use this site to access the information you need about the Catholic Church and as a resource for broadening your faith. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have.
I share this information not to prove that Catholics are right and every one else is wrong. If that is all you come away with from this information then I have done an injustice not only to you but to Jesus! I give this information so that Catholics can better understand their own beliefs and thereby be better able to share with other Catholics as well as non-Catholics.
1Peter 3:15 "Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, 16 but do it with gentleness and reverence,"

At the time of Jesus you had many
so-called 'teachers' of God's word. Some even totally contradicted one another. In order to put an end to the confusion Jesus established the 'Magisterium' or 'Teaching Office' of His Church.
Basically Jesus is saying that you have only 'One' to look to for the 'Truth', that is God.
Scripture tells us that Jesus says there
is "One Truth". John 14:6 "Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me."
Scripture also tells us that there is 'One Authority' established on earth by God to carry on; Matthew 16:19 "And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven."
Which echoes the verse from Isaiah;.
Isaiah 22:21 "And I will clothe him with thy robe, and will strengthen him with thy girdle, and will give thy power into his hand: and he shall be as a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Juda. (22) And I will lay the key of the house of David upon his shoulder: and he shall open, and none shall shut: and he shall shut, and none shall open."
God promising full authority to His "Vicar" on earth.
