Explanations to some common misunderstandings about the Catholic Church.

I never really had a chance to answer Amanda's issues with the Catholic Church, but it occurred to me that maybe her list was representative of some of the more common misunderstandings about the Catholic Church. So I thought it might be informative to do a series of basic explanations on Catholicism using Amanda's list as the basis.

Amanda gives the doctrine she is addressing and the proof text she sees as being biblically against it.


She didn't really have a text against the rosary but I don't think she is aware of how biblical the rosary really is! So here are some links about the history of the rosary and the different bits of scripture that tie into each decade.

The scriptural rosary. An example of the first Joyful Mystery.

Our Father

The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a virgin;/ and the virgin's name was Mary. (Lk 1:26-27)

Hail Mary

'Rejoice, so highly favored!/ The Lord is with you.' (Lk 1:28)

Hail Mary

She was deeply disturbed by these words/ and asked herself what this greeting could mean.

(Lk 1:29)

Hail Mary

But the angel said to her, 'Mary, do not be afraid;/ you have won God's favor.' (Lk 1:30)

Hail Mary

'Listen! You are to conceive and bear a son,/ and you must name him Jesus.' (Lk 1:31)

Hail Mary

'He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High;/ and his reign will have no end.'

(Lk 1:32-33)

Hail Mary

Mary said to the angel, 'But how can this come about,/ since I am a virgin?' (Lk 1:34)

Hail Mary

'The Holy Spirit will come upon you/ and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow.' (Lk 1:35)

Hail Mary

'And so the child will be holy/ and will be called Son of God.' (Lk 1:35)

Hail Mary

'I am the handmaid of the Lord,' said Mary/ 'let what you have said be done to me.' (Lk 1:38)

Hail Mary

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit./ As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
