Disclaimer and Other Legal Notice

In the posts that will follow, we’re going to be telling the story of how we’ve been drawn to the Catholic Church.  In doing so, we’ll be talking about how we have perceived our religious experience throughout our lives.  We recognize that some of our readers may have had similar experiences but have not perceived them the way we have.  We respect that, and we have no purpose to offend anyone.  We will write as charitably as we can (although Nikki thinks there’s always room for tasteful snarkery), trusting that our readers know that everything we write is written out of a love for them and for Christ and His Church.

We also want to point out right up front that, although we will do our very best to accurately describe Catholic doctrine, we are not infallible sources of Church teaching.  Heck, we’re not even in the Church yet.  As a consequence, we’ll try to provide citations to the Bible and the Catechism as necessary, along with other sources we have found helpful.  We’ve listed some of these on the “Some Good Resources” page.

As we go along, our topic choices might seem a bit random.  If you stick with us, though, you’ll eventually see (we think) that there’s method to the madness.  As G.K. Chesterton would put it, you can start the case for Catholicism with a taxi cab or a turnip because, it’s not just that this thing or that thing proves Catholicism, it’s that EVERYTHING proves it.

    First time I have ever seen a blog on matters of faith begin with a legal disclaimer. A dear and godly mentor of mine used to say, “I am neither Protestant Nor Catholic but I am both protestant and catholic.” I would not argue you out of your convictions, nor would I try to turn you off the Roman Road, I would say the call of Christ is “Follow me” nothing less nothing more. In the Greek that phrase “follow me” carries the implication of wild passionate love. Love Christ that way and trust nothing less than Him. What a day in heaven when Luther and John Paul II will walk along the streets of gold arm in arm and laugh at how silly we all have been.
