Just this past week I’ve come across three Catholics trying to explain why they believe what they believe.   I’ve been so impressed with the reasoning and the intelligence they exhibit in  their thinking that I am happy to be in their camp and I invite others to listen in.    Here three writers look at their faith from entirely different vantage points.

He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore.
