Welcome to Apostolic Apologetics. This website is a Lay Apostolate [ W ] in the form of a collection of documents and resources explaining authentic Catholicism and the teachings of the Catholic Church which encompass the Gospel, History, Doctrine, and many other subjects. This website has been created to serve as a tool for those seeking accurate information about the Catholic Church, and also for those who find easy access to apologetics and catechesis information useful. This page has existed since 2008. Use the navigation on the left side of this page to navigate topics.
This website is being created document by document. It started with perhaps the most common misconceptions about the Catholic Faith. As time moves on, I add to this collection of documents, treating more and complex issues. While there are certainly points and concepts that have not yet been answered here, you are encouraged to check back frequently, leave your comments, questions, and topic suggestions. I will do my best to answer them as time allows. In the meantime, if there's something you're not finding here, chances are it is available in one of the various resources located here.
This website is equipped with a built in comment system. You are encouraged to use this feature. If you need to send an e-mail to the author, you can do that by clicking here. In addition to these methods, I am available for live chat via Internet Relay chat (IRC). If you have mIRC installed you can join our channel by clicking here.

There are not a hundred people in America who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions of people who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church — which is, of course, quite a different thing. (Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Foreword to Radio Replies Vol. 1, (1938) Page IX)
"If I have written anything erroneous, I submit all to the judgment and correction of the Holy Roman Church, in whose obedience I now pass from this life." (St. Thomas Aquinas)
