Our Apologetics Page Answers Questions About Catholicism's Beliefs, Practices and History

Christ and St. Thomas in the upper room
Christ was crucified on earth and the Church is crucified by all of us, by her members most particularly, because she is a church of sinners. Christ never said that the Church would be operated in a sinless or intelligent way, but that it would not teach error. This does not mean that each and every priest won’t teach error, but that the whole Church speaking through the Pope will not teach error in matters of faith. The Church is founded on Peter who denied Christ three times and couldn’t walk on the water by himself. You are expecting his successors to walk on the water.
From a letter by Flannery O'Connor in response to a friend's criticism of the Catholic Church's shortcomings.

The articles on our apologetics page explain the beliefs, practices and history of the Catholic Church. As the above quotation cites, it is important to remember that the Church is a human institution with a divine mission. We hope that this information will lead you to a deeper love and greater appreciation for Christ and His pilgrim Church. Answers to questions about the Faith are a click away.
