I can answer questions like, "Help me reconcile the Catholic Church to Protestant religions" or "Help me understand some of the staunch, unbendable rules that the Vatican asks Catholics to keep" or "How must the Church reconcile other religions or religious beliefs" and more...

What do you like about this subject?

I'm a fervent lover, defender and fledging apologist for Catholicism... and I'll always answer your question to the very best of my ability. Given my conversion to Catholicism from Protestant, I have a newly enthusiastic knowledge of the Catholic Faith.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I learn something new nearly everyday about my faith. I'm especially interested in "miracles" or God-incidences, the Charismatic movement and learning more about the Saints.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Did you know that Christians, Jews and Muslims all enjoy the identical first five books of their Bible, Quran or Torah -- one in the same! Let's focus our conversations on what Truth we all hold dear, holy and guiding convenant, and NOT so much our differences. Amen?

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Abortion, contraception, abstinance, Natural Family Planning (NFP) & how it works!
