"As the flesh is nourished by food, so is man supported by prayers"

St Augustine

"Whoever wants to stand alone without the support of a master and guide will be like the tree that stands alone in a field without a proprietor. No matter how much the tree bears, passers-by will pick the fruit before it ripens. "

St John of the Cross, OCD - Doctor of the Church

"If you wish to learn and appreciate something worth while, then love to be unknown and considered as nothing. Truly to know and despise self is the best and most perfect counsel."

Thomas á Kempis

"Father, may they be one as You and I are one".

Catholic Apologetics

To understand more about the Church and her teaching, or to be able to refute objections from non-Catholics, there is a marvellous body of work at Radio Replies - Catholic Apologetics

On this site you can browse over 4000 questions and answers about the Church and her teachings that were the result of radio programmes conducted by Rev Dr Leslie Rumble, M.S.C. on the Catholic Broadcasting Station 2SM Sydney Australia in the 1930s and 40s. Rev. Charles M. Carty from the US also collaborated on the published work. The questions and answers are still, in the main, relevant today. Happy reading!
