I had a request yesterday to be interviewed by some folks for a podcast they do discussing big questions. She said she was an Evangelical Protestant. The other two interviewers were to be a “religious agnostic” and an atheist. They wanted to ask why I am Catholic.
The best answer if that the Catholic Church is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic,
Last first: It is apostolic. It goes back 2000 years to the Apostles and therefore the Lord Jesus Christ himself. It was not founded by a 21st century TV preacher or an 18th century itinerant evangelist or even a sixteenth century monarch or reformist firebrand. It was founded on the lives and ministry of Christ’s own apostles and there is plenty of historical proof that this is so.
