From the Vatican: Making the old new: Vatican encourages a recovery of "apologetics".

By Mike Humphrey

From the January 20, 2012 edition of the Boston Archdiocesan Newspaper, "the Pilot".

Because of the lack of attention to the important and vital vocation of Catholic Apologist, a vocation that goes back to the early Church Fathers who lived from 100 A.D. to 850 A.D., I wanted to share with you an article that was published in my diocesan newspaper.

It's my hope that pastors and priests will hear the call from the Vatican and encourage those who are drawn to this vocation while introducing this vocation to youth in their CCD classes who have never heard about it.

If you do feel called to this vocation, you are more than welcome to contact anyone on the team for:

  • encouragement
  • support, and
  • suggestions

This posting may help.
