The Gang Rape of Brett Kavanaugh

INTRODUCTION

This blog, SimpleCatholicTruth (SCT), was founded back in 2016 with one goal in mind, to discover and then explain the Truth in simple terms. As I wrote in the mission statement of SCT (which you can read in its entirety by clicking HERE) – “we should hold back no effort in discovering the Truth, understanding the Truth, and walking in the Light. The Truth is our goal.”

Of course, for me the Truth and the Way is Jesus Christ so blogs here at SCT will always be entirely focused on Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church that He founded. I have intentionally avoided getting mired in subjective social topics, especially politics, that are often nothing but emotional shouting matches. However, the recent events surrounding the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court have forced me to break from the past standard and offer a short commentary.

Jesus is asking… (How) Do You Love Me?

Simple Catholic Snapshots

  • After the Resurrection, Jesus appeared to seven disciples along the North shore of the Sea of Galilee. (Jn 21)
  • The encounter centers on Jesus questioning Peter three times – each question apparently seeking confirmation of Peter’s love. (Jn 21: 15-17)
  • The questions sound simple enough: ‘Do you love me?’
  • But was Jesus asking… or teaching?

Silently Teaching the Truth of Catholicism

Simple Catholic Snapshots
