    Is Catholicism true? Or is it just made up? How can I explain the faith to my family or friends who no longer believe?

    In this mind-blowing series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes up the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith and provides clear and compelling biblical answers. He begins at the beginning--with the existence of God--and walks you step-by-step through the foundations of the faith.  Along the way, Dr. Pitre explains:

    Does God Exist? How can we know it?
    Is Jesus God? Did Jesus claim to be God? And why should we believe him?
    Peter and the Papacy?  Did Jesus establish the Catholic Church? What is the historical evidence?
    How Did We Get the Bible?  From where did the Bible come? Who decided which books got in and which didn't?
    Is the Eucharist Jesus’ Real Presence? What does the Bible teach about Jesus' Real Presence in the Eucharist?
    Why Confess to a Priest? Did Jesus arrange for us to confess our sins to a priest of the new covenant?
    Do Catholics Worship Mary? What does the Bible teach about her?
    Purgatory and Prayers for the Dead? Where is Purgatory in the Bible? Why do Catholics pray for the dead?

    If you've ever been asked any of these questions but weren't quite sure how to answer -- or if you know someone who has left the Church and no longer believes, then buckle up: this Bible study is for you. In it, you'll discover how just reasonable, biblical, and beautiful the Catholic faith really is.

Why We Believe - Answering Common Questions About Our Catholic Faith

In the Adult Religious Education Program at my Parish, I recently facilitated the first 4 sessions of Why We Believe. On the Evaluation Form, the attendees were asked to list two or three things that they learned and want to remember. The following is a very short summary of what they learned. Three reasons why we know that God exists – The World, The Human Person, and Divine Revelation;The 3 motives of credibility that are reasons for believing that God has revealed Himself – miracles, prophecy, and existence of the Church;.Jesus claims to be divine in all four Gospels; When God changes names, something significant is going to happen.; The Bible is Inspired Word of God.; The different numbers of Books in Catholic and Protestant Bibles. Catholic Bible has 73 Books – 46 OT, 27 NT. The Protestant Bibles have 66 Books – 39 OT, 27 NT; Jesus believed Scripture. Dr. Pitre does an outstanding job of presenting the material in an easy to understand way. The attendees are anxiously waiting the Sessions 5-8.

Genesis

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.

Enlightening!

Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
