"Shun too great a desire for knowledge, for in it there is much fretting and delusion. Intellectuals like to appear learned and to be called wise. Yet there are many things the knowledge of which does little or no good to the soul, and he who concerns himself about other things than those which lead to salvation is very unwise. "

Thomas á Kempis

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!
