Starting here, starting now

A man in the parish named Rob brought his new web site to my attention this morning. Thus begins a new collection of Catholic sites dedicated to busting the myths and bringing out the truth about the beauty of the fullness of Christian Faith in the universal Church: one, holy, catholic and apostolic.

Do you have a site to add to the collection? Any elements of unorthodoxy will result in elimination.

Try this one out. Send comments. Thanks.

From Rob's site:

"Which Church is the Church founded by Jesus Christ?

"Many claim that their church is that founded by Jesus Christ. Christ, Himself, clearly states his intention to found one and only one church. “And this on this rock I will build my church.” [Matthew 16:18]. In His high priestly prayer at thLast Supper, He prayed “that they may be one, as we are one.” [John 17:20 2] For the first thousand years, there was only one Christian Church. So which church today is the legitimate and faithful continuation of the Church Jesus founded?

"To find the answer, we need to look back to the writings of Christians from the 1st and 2nd centuries and examine what they wrote about the Church in its early decades. For these writings, we look to the Early Church Fathers, some of whom learned their faith from the apostles themselves. Their writings, many still in existence, speak in great detail of the practices and doctrines of the early church. Let’s compare what they say to the claims of churches in our own time."
