"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

Judge Robert H. Bork: "..there was the fact that the (Catholic) Church is the Church that Christ established"

"I found the evidence of the existence of God highly persuasive, as well as the arguments from design both at the macro level of the universe and the micro level of the cell.

"I found the evidence of design overwhelming, and also the number of witnesses to the Resurrection compelling. The Resurrection is established as a solid historical fact.

"Plus, there was the fact that the (Catholic) Church is the Church that Christ established, and while it’s always in trouble, despite its modern troubles it has stayed more orthodox than almost any church I know of. The mainline Protestant churches are having much more difficulty."

-Judge Robert H. Bork, Former circuit judge, U.S. solicitor general and 1987 Supreme Court judicial nominee, entered the Catholic Church on July 21 at age 76 Source: Catholic Education

  1. Christ did NOT establish the Catholic church. The catholic Church was made by a comittee at least 300 years AFTER Christ and Peter were DEAD!!!

    1. How could that be when St. Ignatius of Antioch already recognize the EXISTENCE OF A UNIVERSAL (CATHOLIC) CHURCH when he said in 110 A.D. "Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church".

      St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

      In fact, St. Ignatius was St. John's disciple.

      So 300 years after Christ and Peter died is quite inaccurate.
