One of the sad realities of our time is a decrease in Catholic identity. Many Catholics now view the one, true Church founded by Jesus Christ as “just one of many churches.” Unfortunately, by not recognizing the fact that the Catholic Church possesses the fullness of truth, people often leave the Church for other “churches”, thinking that there really is no difference. This article is my attempt to point out some basic Catholic teachings that are not known by most Catholics. Thanks to God’s providence, this piece has been getting a lot of publicity and I’ll be speaking about it on several national radio shows in the next few weeks. Whether you are Catholic or not, I ask you to please read it with an open mind and I encourage you to research these items further. By doing so, I think that you will come to the same conclusion that I’ve reached: In the Catholic Church, we’ve discovered the “pearl of great price”!
