Everyone is looking for answers to their deepest questions, and for meaning in their lives. We want to know who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. Some attempt this by seeking out the modern Gurus of self help, others by delving into Eastern Mysticism, some simply overwhelmed turn to drugs, while others seek to "liberate" themselves through unrestricted sexual license, while others use excessive amounts of exercise to take control of their life, and others make an unrestrained pursuit of wealth, and yet even when the ultimate end of all of these paths are achieved very few if anyone is enlightened or happy.
So many feel so empty today and they don't even seem to know why. There is so much depression and mental illness in the world today, and suicide is possibly the most common it has ever been throughout the world. The most terrible crimes are committed in astounding numbers every day all throughout the so called civilized world. Terrible ailments plague mankind, and are only surpassed by those terrors we create for ourselves.
But the answers to all of our problems and to those deepest questions can be found, and it is indeed in and through Catholicism. No matter what the difficulty or the question is Catholicism has the answer and really the only answer to the most basic and essential questions of life, death, and beyond.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why must we suffer? How can evil exist if God is goodness itself, and He created everything? Is it a sin to shop on Sunday? What is the cause of all the evils in the world? Are organ transplants ever morally licit? What does the Church really teach about suicide? How can the Catholic Church be the One True Church when so many Catholics, even Priests and Bishops perpetrate great evils?
For all of these questions Catholicism has the answer. And it is the purpose of this website to make an attempt to share these greatly desired answers with anyone who has "ears to hear".
God bless you and thank you for your visit to this website.
“Dispensers of mercy” was only meant to refer to Priest and Bishops as they are the only ministers of the Sacrament of Penance, which is called also the “sacrament of mercy”. This was not meant to discount or minimized the ministry of Deacons.
