"I tend to take a different view on this matter. "Hence, the fact that some happen to doubt about articles of faith is not due to the uncertain nature of the truths, but to the weakness of the human intelligence"-- St. Thomas Aquinas…"
"I go to the TLM. I have gone to the NO mass, however, I seem to be more in tune to my faith while attending the TLM. Yes, it is all in Latin. Yes, the priest always faces the altar. But there are two things that really speak…"
"I appreciate your thread post, and your approach to it. I suppose I could be considered somewhat 'militant' on my defense of Catholicism, and if it has offended you, or anyone else, I apologize. It is my opinion that this whole…"
"I find it interesting that you answered by saying I am splitting hairs. Is the word purgatory in scriptures? No, nor is the word Trinity, or the word Rapture. I assume that you believe, and as such, would not say that the…"
