  • A Muslim person told me that my bible is not reliable because it’s undergone many translations as opposed to the Koran which hasn’t been translated. Can Father explain?
  • I just lost two brothers recently, would the first brother know about the second brother dying, and could that first brother pray for him?
  • Could I receive holy communion, if I wasn’t married in the Church, and my wife was baptized Lutheran, could I still receive communion?
