This book answers in clear, concise terms many of the most common questions asked about the Catholic faith-queries such as these: Why do Catholics make so much of Mary? Do Catholics really think the pope is infallible? Why do Catholics confess to a priest? Do Catholics still believe in purgatory and mortal sin? Were Catholics ever forbidden to read the Bible? Why don’t Catholics practice artificial contraception? Aren’t annulments just Catholic divorces? Non-Catholics, new Catholics, and even cradle Catholics will find here fresh insights into the Church’s liturgy, sacraments, hierarchy, and much more.
