Catholic Answers is an apostolate dedicated to serving Christ by bringing the fullness of Catholic truth to the world. We help good Catholics become better Catholics, help bring former Catholics "home," and lead non-Catholics into the fullness of the faith.

Welcome to Catholic apologetics, led by Dr. Jim Dobbins, Author of Take My Hand: A personal retreat companion. Just finished an RCIA program? This is the next stop on your faith journey.

Adults leave the Catholic Church because they do not understand the truths of our Faith. If our children, the future of the Church, are going to learn, defend and explain the eternal truths of our Catholic faith, adults must be well catechized or the children will have no teachers. Learning does not stop with CCD, CYO, or RCIA. Your next step to learning the truths of our Catholic Faith is right here. Join us on this journey of discovery.

My work is about reading the Bible — reading it with you, and reading it “from the heart of the Church.”

As I invite you to dig into Scripture and into this site, I join St. Paul in his prayer:

"May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones, and what is the surpassing greatness of his power for us who believe…" Ephesians 1:18-19
PATRICK HOSTS the popular “Right Here, Right Now” radio show, Monday through Friday from 4:00 to 5:00 pm ET. His show is  produced by Immaculate Heart Radio and is broadcast across the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network of approximately 220 AM & FM stations in the U.S., as well as on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio (channel 130), globally via shortwave, and on the Internet.

Don't you wish everyone you knew was Catholic?

In his groundbreaking DVD, Why Be Catholic?, Catholic Answers Director of Apologetics Tim Staples, offers an engaging and simple solution: "Catholicism has the cure for what ails each of us."

Using an entertaining speaking style, backed up by logic and science, Tim leaves his audience with answers to our most fundamental questions.

In Why Be Catholic? Tim covers:

  • Scientific proofs for the existence of God;
  • Philosophical principles for proving the existence of God;
  • How God is revealed through his Church;
  • How all roads lead to Rome;
  • And why the Catholic Church is the one true Church.

Tim Staples has spent his life studying the faith, both from outside the Catholic Church (as a Protestant minister) and from inside as a Catholic apologist and speaker. In Why Be Catholic?, he presents a 90-minute, information-packed primer.

In the end it is the Holy Spirit who brings individuals to Christ and his Church. Your job is to assist in the process—and Why Be Catholic? will help you do just that.
