These here days I’m around a lot of Catholics. I’m also reading a biography of Martin Luther’s life…. sooo…. Basically I am extremely curious what the catholic church is all about these days. You know, post-reformation…. I was in with a resident and the topic of conversation turned to religion. It comes out that this individual is catholic. I say “I’m non-denominational christian, but if I had to slap a label on it I’d probably be Lutheran. I don’t know much about the Catholic church, what are you all about?”
“Well I’m a bad Catholic, but I believe…”
And I listened to Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension paraphrased. nothing about the virgin Mary, nothing about the pope, nothing about images of Jesus or anything.
I’ve decided in order to get the lowdown about those things I should ask a good Catholic. do you agree?
