A non-denominational Christian friend of Mark Bonocore, who is very interested in becoming a Catholic, has been corresponding with his fellow non-denominationalist and Christian author, Jim Fowler, but has been very disappointed with Mr. Fowler's rather evasive responses. Fowler claims not to be a Protestant, but merely a "Christian" who does not subscribe to any theological tradition. Mark supplies his friend with 30 signs that indicate that Fowler "might be a Protestant".
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) plenary will open with a day and a half public session that will feature two talks by Catholic Studies professor Richard Gaillardetz of the University of Toledo, Ohio, to mark the Year for Priests. The award-winning author and writer who served on the board of the Catholic Theological Society of America from 2006-2008 will talk on the impact of the Second Vatican Council on the priesthood and on the relationship of bishops to priests.
Why have the Canadian Bishops invited a dissenter to speak at their Plenary Assembly?
's John Pacheco, along with other concerned parties, explore the various heterodox proclamations of Richard Gaillardetz and make their case as to why (or why not) he was a poor choice of a speaker to mark the Year for Priests.

In this lengthy tome, Mark Bonocore discusses the sources and misunderstandings of the East and West's understanding of the filioque. In the process, he shows that with a little context and deeper understanding, it was much ado about nothing.
Mark Bonocore offers this excellent article on why unity is so important, and how the Bible and church history testify to it. Protestants claim that they are united in the "the fundamentals", but the question is: Is that enough? Does it meet the biblical standard? Mark shows that it does not.
Ouch. Our little inquisition of Tim Enloe's rather revealing comments seemed to hit a raw nerve with some Protestants. We have been asked to explain how the Catholic rule of faith has always functioned, and we are happy to oblige. With a little bite and drama, our director draws out the truth.
This article deals with the Protestant claim that, unlike Catholic priests, Protestant ministers are sent by God to preach the Gospel, for, as the Scripture says: "How shall they preach unless they be sent?" (Romans 10:15)
Sometime ago, Eric Svendsen offered a $100,000 reward to the contestant who could answer his 18 Challenges to the Catholic Faith. Well, John did it, but Eric hasn't coughed up yet. We're still debating whether to send over Guido or Luigi to collect.
