  • What’s the ultimate criteria for atheists? And, what’s the universe without life? 


  • At the Last Supper, was there transubstantiation? 
  • For those who have died, has Jesus already judged them? 
  • A young man is thinking of joining the Carthusians
  • One of my friends asks for the intercession of deceased non-Catholics, is this OK? 
  • Why did the Lord mark certain foods clean and others unclean? 

Word of the Day: Judged


  • I’m looking for an overview on Christian Anthropology and where to find a good resource
  • At Sunday Mass our priest said that Jesus fed 5,000 but other people probably had food that they were sharing as well. What do you think?
  • How did Mary tell her friends about her pregnancy? 
  • Revelation 12:6 | Can you help me interpret this?
