Superb. This has almost two million views on YouTube. We need Catholic Apostolates that could do internet videos with this type of production values and this type of faith. Too many Catholic videos on the internet are shockingly bad. Good intentions do not make up for appallingly bad execution.
Catholics don’t ask why enough.
To some — for instance, those who have the run-of-the-mill dissenter in mind — this might seem to be prima facie false, given that plenty of Catholics seem to question Church teaching. But I’m not talking about questioning Church teaching in the sense of doubting it; yes, dissenters do that aplenty, but what they don’t do is ask “Why?” with sufficient depth, with the goal of truly seeking to understand what the Church teaches on topic X and why she teaches that. In the case of most dissenters I’ve encountered, their “why?” is really “Well, that’s silly, I don’t believe that,” without any substantial engagement with the Church’s teaching, without any grappling with the inner rationale of the doctrine. For the most part, dissenters don’t really ask “why?”.
But they should. And so should the rest of us.
Hat tip to Rich Leonardi at Ten Reasons. A powerful video from Catholics Come Home. The internet can be a powerful tool for Catholic evangelization, and it is heartening to see lay Catholics seizing the initiative. Time for us all to roll up our sleeves.
