I am Catholic

When our fellow believers start to question us about our faith, most of the time we tend to back down because our faith seemed to be just a “hand-me-down” culture/religion… It is important that as a faithful believer, we don’t only follow blindly but we follow with a grateful heart because we know deep in our hearts the reasons why we do these things. So here’s a list/guide of the bible scriptures that will answer the cabwebs on our heads related to the Catholic faith.
