    Doesn’t the Bible say we’re all saints?

How can the saints possibly hear the prayers of everyone on earth?

Isn’t praying to dead saints not only idolatrous but also the unbiblical practice of necromancy?

If Jesus is the “one mediator between God and men” (1 Tim. 2:5), isn’t it wrong to ask the saints to mediate for us with God?

Catholics believe that the souls of those who were saved by Jesus not only live forever in his presence, but that we who are still on earth have fellowship with them. This sense of solidarity with all those who live in Christ is ancient and unbroken—but it’s also a source of confusion and sometimes even hostility for non-Catholic Christians. 20 Answers: The Communion of Saints explains this beautiful Catholic teaching in a way that’s easy to understand and share, with solid biblical arguments dispelling many myths about our belief and practice regarding the saints.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

    Did the pope support Hitler?

Aren’t Christmas, Easter, and other holidays stolen from pagan feasts?

Doesn’t the use of statues and idolatrous religious art prove that Catholics worship Mary and the saints?

Isn’t Catholic history one long string of oppression, from native peoples subjected by missionaries to innocent women, scientists, and non-believers burned at the stake?

When you have been around for 2,000 years like the Catholic Church, there are bound to be some crazy rumors about you. Some are ancient, re-warmed from age to age by the Church’s enemies; others are modern, kept afloat by the mounting ignorance of an increasingly secular society. 20 Answers: Anti-Catholic Myths looks at some of the most persistent of those myths, both historical and theological, serious and silly, that continue to be voiced to our day, and shows you how to defend the Church from the lies.

    Aren’t relics and sacramentals just “Catholic superstition”?

What are some biblical reasons for revering sacred objects and using them in prayer?

How does the Church know that body parts of saints and other holy objects are authentic?

Are there any rules for keeping relics and sacramentals at home, giving them to others, and disposing of them if necessary?

The use of holy objects in worship is one of the best-known hallmarks of Catholicism—and one of the most misunderstood. Whether it’s venerating the corporal remains or personal belongings of saints (relics) or praying with the help of tangible items in liturgy and individual devotion (sacramentals), such practices often puzzle Catholic, Protestant, and nonbeliever alike. 20 Answers: Relics and Sacramentals clears up the misconceptions and shows you how Christianity is truly an incarnational religion that involves the whole person, body and soul, and the physical world that Jesus came to redeem.

    Popular culture fills our heads with lurid images of apocalyptic events, and the daily headlines make us wonder if the prophesied end of days may soon be here. 20 Answers: The End Times cuts through the wild speculation and explains what the Church and biblical prophecy really teach us about the Christ’s return and the long-foretold events that will mark the culmination of creation as we know it. Best of all, it shows us how to look forward to these things not with fear but with patient perseverance.

    Everyone recognizes the string of beads with a crucifix on the end as a symbol of Catholicism. But the rosary is not for piety-signaling or hanging on your rear view mirror—it’s a powerful tool for prayer and meditation. 20 Answers: The Rosary reveals the history of this venerable devotion (and how it’s not an act of idolatrous “Mary-worship”), explains the gospel mysteries that it dwells on, and shows you how to pray it more fervently to unlock the graces that God wants to deliver through it.

    Just as the natural world has its cycle of seasons featuring light and darkness, life and death (and rebirth), so too does the Christian life trace an annual path marking the sequence of the mysteries of the Faith. 20 Answers: Seasons & Feasts demystifies the “Church calendar,” explaining the beautiful way in which our prayers and observances are ordered throughout the year. It also clears up common misconceptions about certain Catholic practices and offers tips on participating in the liturgical year more fruitfully.

    With the modern hunger for spirituality created by the vacuum of declining religious belief, Western interest in the so-called New Age is stronger than ever. Whether its ideas are ancient and mystical as its promoters believe or just leftovers from hokey novelties from the sixties, they’re finding millions of devotees today—leading Christians away from revealed truth and potentially even opening the door to demonic influence. 20 Answers: The New Age explains the roots and substance of New Age beliefs and contrasts them with Catholic teaching, showing you how to protect yourself and your family from their seductive errors.

    Perhaps no single theological issue divides Catholics and Protestants, and along so many fine lines, as the question of salvation: namely, are we saved solely by profession of our faith in Jesus, or do our actions (and omissions) play a part? Is it enough to commit ourselves interiorly to Christ, or do we need things like sacraments, sacrifices, and acts of love, too? 20 Answers: Faith & Works gives a short and clearly readable explanation of the basic disagreements, provides a compelling case for the traditional Christian understanding that the Catholic Church professes even today, and holds out hope for increasing unity among all believers on this critical issue.

    When Jesus inaugurated his kingdom on earth, he taught us to bring heavenly principles to it. And so, for millennia the Catholic Church has contemplated how Christ’s teachings should be applied to society. 20 Answers: Catholic Social Teaching offers a useful introduction to this often misunderstood topic. It explains how Catholic doctrine affects government, economics, the family, war and peace, basic human rights, and interpersonal justice. Just as important, it lays out where this Catholic approach binds us to necessary principles and conclusions and where there is considerable freedom for disagreement.

    Prayer is the Christian’s source of strength and peace, a channel of grace, a medium of joy and consolation. By it we open our minds to the One who made us and loves us, to give him praise and thanks and to tell him our needs. And we also open our hearts to him, asking him for wisdom and direction in our life. But prayer doesn’t always come easily, especially when we have questions about how or why we should do it. 20 Answers: Prayer addresses some of the most common questions, giving you profitable understanding of what prayer is, strategies for praying more often in a busy day, and ways to advance in prayer toward its goal: deeper, more loving communion with God.

    We believe that God is one, and so is his truth. The mysteries he has revealed to the world, the teachings that his Church professes and safeguards, and the conclusions that we reach by the light of natural reason all harmonize and enrich each other. But in a world skeptical of faith and often too clouded by sentiment and sin to wield reason, it can seem that religious truth and rational truth must be enemies—or at least from different worlds. 20 Answers: Faith and Reason shows you how to restore the unity of truth that is our only basis for living a coherent life of the mind and of the soul, helping you tackle both secular skeptics and your own nagging doubts.

    The rich history and theological, liturgical, and artistic traditions of the twenty-three Eastern Catholic churches are such an indispensable part of the global Catholic communion that, along with the Latin West, these churches are said to form one of the two “lungs” by which the Church breathes and lives. Yet even though Pope St. John Paul II called on the faithful to appreciate the treasures of the Christian East, far too many Catholics remain ignorant of them. 20 Answers: Eastern Catholicism provides an invaluable primer, explaining the origins of the Eastern Catholic churches and how they fit into the one Church of Christ, their distinctive prayers and practices, and some of the common misunderstandings and controversies that even today can cause unnecessary division and confusion.
