• Welcome

    Thank you so much for visiting my site.

    I'm a Catholic apologist and speaker. That means I specialize in defending the Catholic faith: the existence of God; the historicity of Jesus; the truth claims of the Catholic Church.

    I hope to do it in an relatable way that will help you learn the faith and defend it with charity and confidence.

  • We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

If we get it wrong, then everything else gets obscured or perverted. The Catechism summarizes the Trinity in this way: We do not confess three Gods but one God in three persons, the “consubstantial Trinity.” The... Read More

14688_19122_5 One Mediator Between God and Man: A Socratic Dialogue

One of my readers wrote to me today and asked if I would briefly explain how to respond to a protestant who says that since Christ is the one mediator between God and man, going to the saints for intercession is inappropriate. Since I’m sitting on a plane, flying home to Georgia, with little to do (except drink really bad coffee—It’s like they brewed it through... Read More
