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

Why Be Catholic?

The following are links to various articles and tracts written by the good folks at Fish Eaters.  They will guide you through some of the most commonly held misconceptions and stereotypes about Catholic Christianity.  There are some people out there who make a living off of attacking the Catholic Church in one way or another.  Suffice it to say, this is their bread and butter, and it's been a very lucrative business for a very long time.  My father told me to always get your information straight from the horse's mouth, lest you end up looking like a horse's ass.  So in honour of that I leave you with this fine apologetic library written by knowledgeable Catholics about real and actual Catholicism -- not the fictional Catholicism you may have heard about from non-Catholics...
