Contact Steve

Steve is unable to answer all the questions he receives. We are concerned about you and your questions, but due to the increased number of e-mails Steve receives and the demands on his time (due to writing deadlines, travel for the Footprints of God video series, leading pilgrimages, teaching at conferences, writing, and trying to keep the lawn mowed :-) please consider the following:

1. Steve has provided writings and studies to answer many of the most common questions. Also his books, videos, and audio CD’s will answer many of the frequently asked questions.

2. Steve’s Discussion Board is a very helpful and personal resource. You can easily join many different forums with knowledgeable Catholics who are ready and willing to answer questions and help with understanding and defending the Catholic faith.

3. If you have specific questions about the Bible, the Catholic Church, or if you need personal guidance about the Catholic faith, there are many great apologetic and general Catholic sites listed on my Link’s page. Check out Biblical Evidence for Catholicism.

4. I would specifically recommend Catholic Answers with a marvelous set of resources and several Catholic apologists trained to answer inquiries about Catholicism. You can call their Apologist’s Line free of charge at 619-387-7200 (Monday–Friday, 9 AM–5 PM, Pacific Time).

5. If you are considering converting to the Catholic faith, you can find compassionate and understanding guidance from The Coming Home Network.

6. Other great sources for information can be found here: Haydock Bible Commentary, Catholic Encyclopedia, Fathers writing on the Gospels, Aquinas’ Summa Theologica, Fr. Hardon’s Bible Dictionary, On-line Catechism, Vatican website, and EWTN.

If you do need to contact Steve Ray personally he will try to respond but please understand that he receives about 100 e-mails a day and although he tries to respond to each one, his responses may be short, delayed, or impossible.

We apologize for this inconvenience. Thanks for understanding and we hope you enjoy this website and find all the resources helpful.

If you still need to contact Steve Ray, send him an e-mail him at sray@me.com.

Hi Steve,
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have many protestant friends and it is so hard to defend the faith with them. You have given me strength and a new vision.
I want to order some materials. Do you ship to Canada? Do you have a Canadian site.
God Bless,]
Michael Merante

STEVE RAY HERE: Yes, we ship to Canada! My store is here at http://www.SteveRaysStore.com. So glad my humble efforts have been a blessing to you. God bless!!

Where can I get your anology of the ship and the rafts in writing?
Thank you for all you do!

STEVE RAY HERE: Al, sorry but I don’t think that I have that analogy anywhere in writing. I know that it’s an audio in my conversion story sold on my website. Thanks for the prod because I do think I should put it in writing sometime.

Hello Steve. Greetings and graces once again. You’ve been an interview guest on our podcast (link below) which is co-broadcast on our Catholic radio station (link below). We’re very thankful. BUT… I have another reason for reaching out. Would you be willing to consider (leading) a holy land tour next year which would, in part, be a (modest) fundraiser for our non-profit Catholic radio station? I’m sure the economics of your tours must favor your stipend needs, etc. But is there room to consider some sponsorship for our radio? Call, email or text (cell follows). Thanks very much. Blessings. Deacon Tom. 928-277-9851/cell http://www.kpihradio.com http://www.catholicvitamins.com

Yes we can Deacon Tom. I will call you on Thursday.

Steve Ray January 23, 2019 at 9:02 PM

Yes, we can do this like we have for many others in the past. I will give you a call.

Besides Greek and Aramaic what other languages did the Apostles, including Paul, speak and write? Why didn't they use Latin since that was available? Why then does the Church use it. And No, it doesn't work for the faithful.

STEVE RAY HERE: Latin may have been spoken by some in Rome and was becoming the lingua franca of the time, but during the age of the apostles the language used around the world was Greek. Thus, the New Testament was written in Greek so the vast majority of literate people could read it. Later, Greek was eclipsed by Latin and that became the language of the Roman empire.

Paul most certainly spoke Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek and maybe his own dialect in Tarsus.

Thank you dear Steve for your love,efforts and coming home to the Catholic Church. What a blessing to so many. I am a64yr old “cradle catholic “ deepening my faith and loving every second of it. Tonight a beloved friend (born again) and I will be discussing your video. I want to gently show her the Scriptures supporting the true meaning of Baptism. Not sinners prayers etc…
God bless you for helping me..The best Catholics are converts sometimes.
Peace in Christ
Gina

Praise be to Lord Jesus Christ!!

Dear Bro Steve
Peace;

This is George I am from India, presently addressing to you from the United Arab Emirates where I am employed.
I have the below concern and would appreciate if you cud shed some light to it.

Concern : Would ‘Eucharistic celebration’ be an appropriate synonym for the Holy Mass??

The Holy Eucharist is a sacrament and a sacrifice. In the Holy Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is contained, offered, and received.

(a) The whole Christ is really, truly, and substantially present in the Holy Eucharist. We use the words “really, truly, and substantially” to describe Christ’s presence in the Holy Eucharist in order to distinguish Our Lord’s teaching from that of mere men who falsely teach that the Holy Eucharist is only a sign or figure of Christ, or that He is present only by His power.

(b) The word “Eucharist” means “Thanksgiving.”

While The Mass is the Sacrifice of the New Law in which Christ, through the ministry of the priest, offers Himself to God in an unbloody manner under the appearances of bread and wine.

(a) The name “Mass” comes from the Latin word Missa meaning dismissal. In the early days of the Church the catechumens were asked to leave after the gospel and sermon were finished. The faithful, however, remained until they were dismissed after the sacrifice was completed. Then, as now, this was done by saying or singing Ite Missa Est. In the course of time the word Missa, or dismissal, was used to designate the entire sacrifice.

Shall await your kind reply.
Thank you
In Christ Jesus
George

Hello Steve,
Just heard you on EWTN radio with Teresa Tomeo (March 8 2019). You were great and I am sure you helped many Catholics that are struggling with the hierarchy at this time.
My wife and I have wanted to go on pilgrimage with you for many years. Glad to say we will be joining you in May and are even more excited now to join you. Can’t wait to meet you and Janet and to walk in the footprints of God.
Peace
Doug Peterson
