Do you know your family history?
The history of the Church is the story of our family.
It is the epic story of our ancestors in the Faith – the
heroic men and women who shaped civilization and spread the Gospel throughout
Knowing this story is crucial to our identity as Catholics.
Just as we would uncover exciting and interesting stories of
our ancestors through the study of our family genealogy, we can uncover our
Catholic past through the study of Church history.
Many in our society misunderstand and even attack our Church
for the supposed misdeeds of the past.
Topics such as the Crusades, the Inquisition, and Galileo
are used in an attempt to discredit the Church and her role in the world.
What is the truth concerning these events and persons? How
can you answer the objections?
