How Well Do You Know the Faith?
Where is that in the Bible? Why do you Catholics worship Mary? How can you believe in those old superstitions? The list goes on.
You’ve heard the questions, but do you know the answers? Can you really defend your faith?
We’re here to help.
Our newest series, We Believe, is an accessible and essential guide to understanding the teachings of our Catholic faith so that you can defend it and bring others to the Church.
Discover the Truth
There’s a lot of bad information out there. Catholics are sometimes surprised when they learn the truth about the Faith.
Have you ever been told that we don’t need the sacraments? Or that the Eucharist is just a symbol of our unity? How about the claim that Catholics added “extra” books to the Bible?
None of those claims are true, but most Catholics don’t know how to respond. Do you?
In this 30-day series, we’ll walk you through what the Catholic Church actually teaches, so you can know your faith better, live it out, and share it with others.
Get the Answers You NEED to Know
In the past 50 years, many Catholics haven’t been given the education they deserve. We Believe will give you that education so that you can understand your faith more deeply and defend it.
Each day we’ll answer a real-world question or objection that Catholics hear all the time:
- “Why do you have a pope?” (Session 4)
- “Are you saved?” (Session 9)
- “Why do you have priests?” (Session 17)
- “That’s just your truth, but it’s not my truth.” (Session 22)
- “Catholicism is a religion of hate!” (Session 30)
Get clarity on complex issues, and the tools you need to talk about them with others.
How Does It Work?
You can access the full series when you purchase. Each day you will also receive an email reminder linking you to the daily content posted right here at GoodCatholic.com. You’ll be able to repeat the series as often as you wish for one full year. Don’t wait! Subscribe today.
Father Ken Geraci, CPM
Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM lived the life of the prodigal son for most of his young adult life. Raised in a typical 1980s Catholic family, who only lived the externals of the faith, Fr. Ken left the Church. He spent years focused on money, fitness, and success. Very successful in business, he made little room for God—but God did not give up on him. During this journey, God presented him with challenges that forced him to reconsider his beliefs and answer the question “What is Truth?” Through years of struggle, study, and questioning, Fr. Ken found his way from agnosticism to non-denominational Christianity and ultimately, back to the Catholic Church. Fr. Ken joined the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and was ordained in 2012. For two years he served as an associate pastor of a medium-sized parish and currently serves as a Missionary, webmaster, and vocation director for the Fathers of Mercy. Fr. Ken has a deep understanding of the personal and societal pressures that individuals face when wrestling with their faith. He has much experience with apologetics, having spoken to people coming from all stages of the journey—including those who love Christ as well as those who “hate coming to church.” Fr. Ken was the video host for the Good Catholic series We Believe.
Peter Gohn, a proud Irish Catholic and Massachusetts native, studied History and Theology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He then spent several years teaching at Christ the King Catholic High School near Charlotte, North Carolina, while also working as a freelance editor. He joined The Catholic Company in 2017 and became a key member of the Good Catholic project soon after it was launched. When not writing, Peter is likely to be found re-reading his many books, playing his piano, or watching Boston sports. His deep love of ancient and medieval history lends itself to unpacking the many rich traditions of our Catholic faith. He and his wife currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Genevieve Netherton, a native of Pennsylvania, was raised in a large Catholic family of nine children. She studied at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and received spiritual formation from the Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration in Hanceville, Alabama. She is an editor, writer, and marketer for Good Catholic; a content writer for The Catholic Company; a blog contributor for Catholic Company Magazine; and a freelance manuscript editor for fiction, non-fiction, and collections of poetry. Her writing has been published by DKA Magazine, Humane Pursuits, and the acclaimed Catholic quarterly Dappled Things. She currently lives in California with her career-Navy husband.
I’m a day behind in We Believe, but I am floored on this teaching. Father Geraci answered by doubts in a most profound way!
I am truly loving this series. I came into the church a year ago at Easter Vigil. It has been a trying year to understand many of the controversies going on in the church. This series is leading me back into roots of the Faith. I am behind because I keep going back and reading the days over. It has allowed me to learn so much. Is anyone else doing that? Thank you Good Catholic for this series.
I am really enjoying this series. Today’s session (Day 16) really fired me up for the Eucharist.
Thank you Good Catholic for your great customer service and prompt attention to questions.. I am so loving the We Believe series and learning so much about my beautiful Catholic faith! I love you all!
I was born and raised Catholic and this series is so enlightening. Love it. Thank you. Kathy
I am still learning. I grew up believing in the Catholic faith. Believing! I never questioned why. I just knew it was the truth. Now I am learning why it is the truth. Thank you for this series.
Today’s article has absolutely opened my mind and my heart to Mary’s role and gift in my life! I’ve loved her so many years and am devoted to reciting the rosary every day, as well as reading many books about her. However, I’ve been reluctant to totally embrace her because I felt I would be somehow taking my love from Jesus and in some small way be disloyal too my earthly mother even though my mind has known this is not so.
I devoted special effort and time this lent and since to learning more about her and in praying to her. I desperately wanted to know her in my heart, too, but just couldn’t quite feel her love as much as I knew I should. NOW I DO!
I see her as my “spiritual” mother. Somehow that one word has changed everything. Every day I’ve asked her to untie the knots in me that “keep me from understanding your role in my salvation and from loving and trusting you more.” and to help me overcome all obstacles so I can love you more and more and can honor, appreciate, and glorify you and your Son with greater fidelity.”
Today those knots are truly untied and those obstacles are removed. Now I will find the words to thank her.
Meanwhile, thank you, Genevieve. for opening my heart to her love!
Father Geracci’s videos have clarified so many questions for. I love to listen to him further explain the articles with such clear examples. Day 23, clearly allowed me to understand that i need to do so much more than just be good. Charity and getting involved in helping those that need help must be my goal. Thank you Father!
Day 26 of We Believe is fascinating! Who knew that so many advances in science were made by members of the Catholic Church?!
I purchased the We Believe series as a gift for my sister. She said it is the best gift ever. Just a thought if you have difficulty finding a gift for a friend or family member. Gift them a series!
I grew up in the Catholic faith. I never questioned my beliefs. As I got older I felt blessed to experience a deeper connection and a need to pray very distinctive, but never felt comfortable talking about my faith to others. It was good for me to go through this series and be able to put words of answer to possible questions. Thank you father Geraci and everyone involved in putting everything together
I just finished “We Believe” a few days ago, and it was pretty good. It helps me more extra better in explaining our Catholic faith. Great articles and videos overall.
