Are you tired of all the confusion in the Catholic Church? So was I! For this reason, I decided to intensely study the Catholic Magisterium in order to discern between what people say about the Catholic Church vs. what it actually says and teaches.

Fr. John Brown, SJ

“Thought provoking and thought purifying, R&T is a faithful lodestone for Catholics looking to navigate the complexities of our doctrine and practice.”

“I just read this, and couldn’t recommend it enough. It shares related scriptural examples of crises happening in the church today, putting things into perspective and giving hope. Michael also shares personal experiences of times he’s encountered such things. I appreciated that it didn’t shy away from the issues in the church while at the same time didn’t ‘doom and gloom’ the reader. Absolutely worth a read!” – YouTube Review

The Catholic Church is supposed to be the witness to Christ’s teaching. Yet, it seems like many in the Church are more concerned with what the world thinks of them.

This undermines the trust of many faithful Catholics, who expect the Church to be a beacon of truth, goodness and beauty in these tumultuous times.

Some Catholics are tempted to leave the Church. Others have already left. If you fall into either of these categories (or know someone who is), then you’ll want to check out this FREE eBook “Church Chaos: Biblical Insights for Confused Catholics.
