"Let persons in the world sanctify themselves in their own houses, for neither the court, professions, or labour, are any hindrance to the service of God."

"When the devil has failed in making a man fall, he puts forward all his energies to create distrust between the penitent and the confessor, and so by little and little he gains his end at last."

St Philip Neri

"Before a man chooses his confessor, he ought to think well about it, and pray about it also; but when he has once chosen, he ought not to change, except for most urgent reasons, but put the utmost confidence in his director."

St Philip Neri

"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!
