While our regulars may groan, I see that we received close to 200 new visitors yesterday, looking for the juicy gossip that they think we are providing. Welcome, new visitors! I hope you will stay and read, though we are lacking in juicy gossip. Here are some past articles which you may find of interest instead.

Wondering why this blog is here? Why not just stop going to Candy's blog? I delve into our motivations here.

Where do we find the time? We get that a lot.

Got questions about Catholicism? We've got answers, and if you don't find what you're looking for, just ask in the comments.

Why did the Catholic Church ADD books to the Bible?

We didn't. Non-Catholics removed books from the Bible. Read more about the Catholic Bible.

Why does the Catholic Church believe in salvation by works when that is contradicted by Scripture. Why do you believe that Mary is a mediatrix when scripture says that Jesus is the ONE Mediator?

We don't, and we don't.

Why do you worship statues? Don't you know that's idolatry?

We might be kneeling in prayer, but we aren't worshiping.

Why do you pray the rosary with its vain repetition?

Because it isn't repetition that is the problem, it's the vain part.

But you have to admit that the word purgatory isn't found anywhere in Scripture!

The word might not be, but the concept is.

Requiring celibacy for priests isn't biblical. Even Peter was married!

Actually, we have married priests within the Catholic Church today. A picture of a priest with his family is the top picture of this post, explaining the tradition (with a small 't') of priestly celibacy.

Why confess to a sinful priest, when you can confess your sins directly to God?

Read the Biblical basis for Confession.

Plus, the ever-popular Tradition versus Scripture topic. Read here, here, and here for previous posts. Confused about the difference between Tradition and tradition, try here.

Finally, we have no problem with respectful disagreement with Catholic theology. I suppose you could say that we disagree with Candy on what constitutes accurate Catholic theology.

However, we found that Candy's series on the Gospel of John gave a great platform for discussing some differences in theology as we discuss infant baptism, sanctifying grace, and the Lord's Supper/Eucharist.
