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.
When does the series begin?
We Believe will begin on Wednesday, May 20th, and continue for 30 days. Each day you will receive an email linking you to new 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.
