Mother Mary

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom He loved standing near, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!”

Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. – John 19:26-27

Called in the Gospels “the mother of Jesus”, Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth, at the prompting of the Spirit and even before the birth of her son, as “the mother of my Lord”.

In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father’s eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity.  Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly “Mother of God” (Theotokos) – CCC #495

The word “apologetics” comes from the Greek word “apologia,” pronounced, “ap-ol-og-ee’-ah.” It means, “a verbal defense.” It is used eight times in the New Testament: Acts 22:1; 25:16; 1 Cor. 9:3; 2 Cor. 7:11; Phil. 1;7,17; 2 Tim. 4:16, and 1 Pet. 3:15. But it is the last verse that is most commonly associated with Christian apologetics.

Christian apologetics is the branch of theology that deals with answering any and all critics who oppose or question the validity of Christianity.   It can include studying such subjects as biblical manuscript transmission, philosophy, biology, mathematics, evolution, logic, history, etc.   But it can also consist of simply giving an answer to a question about Jesus or a Bible passage.

Why Catholic Apologetics?

1 Peter 3:15 The Truth,
1 Timothy 2:4,
John 8:32,
John 18:37,

There comes a time when we, as Catholics, have to be able to defend and explain certain teachings of our Catholic Faith.- Bishop David Foley
