What Do Catholics Believe

 I have been in many situations where someone has made a totally incorrect statement about the Catholic Church. Yes I corrected the individual and they were very surprised at the misinformation they were given. You see the problem is that many people see with their eyes and don't know the facts. One common one is that we pray to the statues. Well no in fact the statue is merely a reminder of the person and what they did in their lives. Also when we are praying we are asking that individual to pray for us. Many people think that once your dead your gone. That is just simply not true, because it says in the bible to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ.
 So what should we do as Catholics to spread the truth about the Catholic Church and what we believe. I believe we should do just what is says in the Bible. We should put on the Armor of God. In other words we should find all the material written by Catholics and share it with others. This can be done through the building of websites, blogs, social media like facebook and twitter as well as many others. I believe if we all started to share the information, people and other faiths would have a better understanding of the Catholic Faith. They would also find out that we actually have more in common then they know.
 So start by purchasing various books on the Catholic Church and Catholic Faith. Start up websites and more blogs, then show the Love and Respect that Jesus wanted all of us to do. I believe that as others see what we believe and why we do it, they may be drawn into the church. I would suggest watching shows on EWTN such as The Journey Home. This is a show where many different individuals have left their churches to join the Catholic Church. It can be very interesting and a worthwhile experience. You will also learn some things you may not have known about your Catholic Faith.
