It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

The Jewish Roots Of Catholicism

Want to learn more? click here

Evangelicals are well aware of the Jewish roots of Christianity, but they are mostly oblivious to how deeply this manifests itself within the Catholic Church. Many of the mysteries within Catholicism cannot be adequately explained without going back to the Jewish roots of the faith. Indeed, when Evangelicals learn of this, they gain a special appreciation for Catholicism, and some of them even convert over to Catholicism directly because of this. Catholics miss a huge window of opportunity for ecumenical relations with Evangelicals by glossing over the Jewish character of Catholicism. Emphasis on this element in Catholicism would not only help Evangelicals better understand the Catholic Church, but would also result in more Evangelical conversions to the Catholic faith.
