Not a lot of questions by number – but we spent a lot of time on some of the excellent conversations. Fun show!

1 – I want to become Catholic but do I HAVE to go to RCIA?
2 – My wife is going through RCIA and I am joining her to keep her company and support her, but I am Protestant and plan to stay a Protestant. The class has brought up more questions than answers, like why do you use the Catechism more than the Bible?
3 – Same questioner as No. 2: I cannot accept the Catholic teaching that your Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Christ. How do you justify your belief?
4 – I am not Catholic or Protestant but I am wondering why Protestants seem so upset with Catholics and keep attacking them?
5 – Earlier in the show you tied the Chair of Moses to the Chair of Peter. Do you think Clement of Rome who was a pope soon after Peter would recognize that? Do you think that idea is required of Catholics to believe?
6 – I am considering becoming a Catholic. What is the proper procedures and orderly manner to come into the Church? I have some issues that might cause problems with me joining. What should I do?
