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.

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 So glad my humble efforts have been a blessing to you. God bless!!

Al Flores January 19, 2019 at 10:27 AM

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

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.

Deacon Tom Fox January 23, 2019 at 4:48 PM

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

Steve Ray January 23, 2019 at 7:56 PM

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.

David McArthur January 29, 2019 at 10:55 AM

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.

Gina Anelli February 22, 2019 at 1:16 PM

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

Steve Ray February 24, 2019 at 5:34 AM

Thanks Gina. God bless you and prosper you!!

George February 26, 2019 at 2:52 PM

Praise be to Lord Jesus Christ!!

Dear Bro Steve

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

Doug Peterson March 8, 2019 at 10:23 AM

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.

Cody March 21, 2019 at 9:16 AM

Steve I came across this in your back and forth with Webster. Can you tell me what book Ambrose wrote that this comes from?

But Ambrose went on:
“ ‘The persecutor falls to the ground and into hell. Christ [falls] on the risen, Christ falls on the rock, Christ falls on the Church. Hear how Christ falls on the Church! In the background was Peter who followed him as he was led by the Jews to the house of Caiaphas, the head of the Synagogue. Peter is the one to whom he said: “You are Peter and on this rock I shall build my Church.” Where Peter is, there is the Church; where the Church is, there is no death, but eternal life [Ubi ergo Petrus, ibi Ecclesia; ubi Ecclesia, ibi nulla mors, sed vita aeterna]. And therefore he added: “And the gates of hell do not prevail over it, and I give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven.” Blessed [is that] Peter, over whom the gates of hell do not prevail, and before whom the door of heaven does not shut itself; on the contrary he destroyed the vestibules of hell, opened the celestial ones. Being placed on earth, he opened the heaven, closed the hell. There was in all this not a hint that what performed thos

Commentaries on Twelve of David’s Psalms [381-397 A.D.]

[38, 25] “We saw the Prince of Priests coming to us, we saw and heard Him offering His blood for us. We follow, inasmuch as we are able, being priests; and we offer the sacrifice on behalf of our people. And even if we are of but little merit, still, in the sacrifice, we are honorable. For even if Christ is not now seen as the one who offers the sacrifice, nevertheless it is He Himself that is offered in sacrifice here on earth when the Body of Christ [the Eucharist] is offered. Indeed, to offer Himself He is made visible in us, He whose word makes holy the sacrifice that is offered [on the altar at Mass].”

[40. 30] “It is to Peter himself that He says, ‘You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church [Mt 16: 18].” Where Peter is, there is the Church. And where the Church, no death is there, but life eternal.”

Bill Yates May 19, 2019 at 12:55 PM


Dear Steve, The comment facility isn't working on the page where you discuss which bible translation to use and the difficulties involved in translation so I hope you don't mind me posting it here and also hope the comment is valid:

And the difficulties also occur in the English translation of the Missal. How we got 'And also with you' from 'Et cum spiritu tuo' is a mystery. It fits neither the literal nor the dynamic model where the sense has been completely lost. Similarly, the translation of 'For Many/For All' in the Eucharistic Prayer. In the Greek I the word used was polloi, not pante and in the Vulgate multos not totus. Again this fails both the literal and dynamic definitions and was presumably used by the translators to suit their own political/theological bias rather than translate accurately what Jesus is reported as saying the Gospel??

Christina May 31, 2019 at 4:35 AM

Praise the Lord Bro,
I am Christina. i watched your talk at Magnificat about your conversion to Catholic. It was inspiring to hear because i was also convinced that Protestants were right in conversion of Catholics. thank you so much for your insights on this. Now i know i m on right Path.

Aimee Fleming June 7, 2019 at 10:28 PM

Thanks be to God. Heard the warning talk at Steubenville regarding Islam. 4am public call to prayer/theocracy within a democracy? Surely against US law? An imam (Mario Joseph) who converted to Catholicism a good resource. Knows Koran backward and forward. Sends warnings too regarding the Love Jihad. Muslim men allowed to marry Christian women but allowed up to 4 wives and to beat, separate, divorce. Bad news. Says alert all the churches.

Paul Villarreal June 21, 2019 at 10:16 PM

Hello Steve,
Ive contacted you before and I want to get more resources on deliverance and healings from a Catholic perspective. My brother and I were born Catholic, attended a Catholic parochial school & high school. For about 8 years I began supporting Televangelists like Benny Hinn etc because of healing miracles. For about a year I’ve come back to the Catholic Church thanks to your videos. You referred me to St Andrews Bassette and I have been asking for his intercession along with our Blessed Mother for complete recovery. I also asked for St Dymphna for intercession due to nervous and mental stresses issues I have due to Tinnitus like symptoms. My brother has become a Bible Believing Christian and is fired up due to healing and deliverances. His wife wants to become a Chaplain. I want to be healed completely to share that the Catholic approach is also powerful and effective and also bring him back home to the Catholic Church. Is there any other resources that can help? Ps. One day we will meet because my goal is to go on one of your trips to Isreal..

Steve Ray June 22, 2019 at 5:08 PM


Sorry but I don’t have any other resources off the top of my head. I’m actually running through an airport right now. I know there are a lot of sources and I just heard of a man who is being prepared for canonization soon who is healed tens of thousands of people who is a very humble man. Sorry I don’t know his name but a lot of this you could search on the Internet. Also, I would suggest you Visit my free Discussion Board at I am sure that many people there will no other resources and be able to help you.

Ric Ramos September 18, 2019 at 1:11 AM

Good pm Steve,

ive been following your website and have purchased some of your books and audio topics.

I have a muslim colleague who obviously not believing on our Bible. He has some reference he mentioned as contradicting passage. One of them is about the time of Jesus birth. in Matthew chapter 2 – Jesus was born in the time of King Herod(4BC) but in Luke chapter 2 – Jesus was born during time of Cyrenius as Governor of Syria(6AD). He said there is a gap of 10 years.

Was there really a contradiction on these passage? I will appreciate your answer. Thank you.


Elise Hougesen September 20, 2019 at 7:36 PM

El Vaticano II tuvo estas cosas entre las consecuencias. Quizás la más conocida de las separaciones postconciliares es la de Lefebvre. Siempre existe la opción cismática en la Iglesia, siempre. Pero es una de las opciones que el Señor deja a la libertad humana. No le temo a los cismas, rezo para que no existan, porque está en juego la salud espiritual de mucha gente. Que haya diálogo, que haya corrección si hay algún error, pero el camino del cisma no es cristiano.

Vatican II had these things among the consequences. Perhaps the best known of post-conciliar separations is that of Lefebvre. There is always the cismatic (schismatic) option in the Church, always. But it is one of the choices that the Lord leaves to human freedom. I am not afraid of cismas, (schisms) I pray that they do not exist, because the spiritual health of many people is at stake. Let there be dialogue, that there is correction if there is any error, but the path of the schism is not Christian.

My comment:

Pope Francis did not specify “separation” as schism. That he prays they do not exist implies that they might not exist. So he is still double speaking.

Your travel radio spots note Mexico being safe and beautiful. I don’t see a 2019 or 2020 trip. Will one be scheduled?

We hope to take another group in a few years but don’t have one one the calendar yet. Stay tuned.

Tom December 3, 2019 at 5:40 PM

Steve, hi. Recently discovered your site and love it. I just bought Upon This Rock from Amazon and look forward to diving into it.
I found your site through a Google search while looking for a book on Luther written from a Catholic perspective…a book that will clearly call him a heretic and demonstrate why. Surprisingly, I still cannot find such a book. I found a few articles here and there, and a few audio CDs only.
A glance at Amazon shows dozens of books about Luther the hero, the mild-manner reformer, the common man who stood up to the evil Pope, etc. But no books about the schism he sowed.
Catholic Answers is nice, but I find too many Protestants on there defending Luther on every post.
Anyway, keep up the good work, and I will be reading Upon This Rock soon.

Steve Ray here: thanks for your kind words and I hope that you enjoy the book Upon This Rock. It took two years of my life to research and write. I have some books at home that you would appreciate about Martin Luther but I’m not at home right now so I don’t have access to give you titles and authors. If you send me an email at I’ll try to remember when I get home to send you a few titles.

Eduardo Yabo February 8, 2020 at 8:37 AM

Thank you very much! God bless you, Sir! I watched your videos especially with your Indian people audience. I really appreciate the way you explained your conversion to the Catholic Church with your family. I am also a Roman Catholic member and once I studied theology for priesthood. I am now active in my parish because I did not pursue priesthood. I am now working as a Public School Teacher here in Mindanao, Philippines. I like the way you shared your life. I am also one of the defenders of faith here in our parish. I hope one of these days, God willing, we will meet in person. Thank you and God bless you and your family. Are you a Franciscan?

Br. Craig Digmann February 19, 2020 at 10:45 PM

Hi Steve,
You have been a great inspiration to me ever since I heard your conversion testimony cassette back in the mid 1990’s. As a Cradle Catholic, I have learned so much from your cassette tapes, VCR’s, and DVD’s. Now as a Glenmary Home Missioner, I do “Catholic Presence Outreach Ministry” in Hancock County TN which is .2% Catholic, and about 95% Baptist. By invitation, I have attended services at about 230 different protestant churches (primarily Baptist) in the past 8 years. I share about the Catholic Faith in their churches! I would really like to chat with you, and think we might have a lot to talk about. Maybe we could talk by phone.
May God Bless You Always!

Hey Mr. Ray,

Hi again! We made a video in the likeness of you and I thought you may want to check it out. So here’s the private video link. I really think you’ll enjoy it. We put our heart and soul into it. So with our further ado, here is, “The Miracles of Jesus; A Steve Ray film” Contact me back and tell us what you think about ir video or whatever you feel is appropriate. Thank you and God bless.

Ethan Elia

STEVE RAY HERE: Hey guys! What fun! My wife and I laughed and smiled our way through the whole thing. I especially liked the conclusion when Max is shaking off the potato chips!! We will send a short thank you by video later today.

LEONARD HEATH April 27, 2020 at 11:04 AM

Hi Steve,

One year ago, I viewed your conversion story. The next day, I went to confession and received the Body and Blood of Christ for the first time in 15 years. Thank you for what you do.

Christy Rieder April 28, 2020 at 9:42 AM

Hi Steve,
I have all of my young adult children in their mid to late 20's who are cradle born Catholics and questioning their faith — the fact that they have questions is actually a big step . I also have a son-in who is not from any faith who is interested in finding answers. I have a daughter in law who is Christian and against my son pursuing his Catholic faith — she has so many questions about the Catholic Faith. I am a practicing Catholic but feel I am not the best to answer all their questions , I fear I may lose them all if I don't find someone to have an open discussion with them . I have prayed for some kind of a spiritual director for them . and funny but you keep coming up ! I just feel your wife and you are so much stronger in the faith bc you have walked that journey . I know you have said your job is to evangelize and we are in desperate need . I have talked to priests but to be honest my children etc have a harder time asking them . I know you have talks and speeches that I love !! I have talked to them and they said they would love to talk to someone personally . They are ALL wanting too — but I REALLY REALLY REALLY worried I won't find someone now that they are seeking ! Again have been praying and Our Lady keeps leading me back to you and your wife !! I know this is odd bc I have NO idea how that would work but maybe you have some local connections where I live to help . Please pray on this to Our Lady to see what direction we are to take . THANK YOU JUST FOR READING and Praying on this . Christy

STEVE RAY HERE: Your children are lucky-blessed to have a mother like you. Like I wrote in a personal e-mail, send me your mailing address and I will send you a bunch of my audio CDs to share with your kids and we will go from there.

Paul Lazarus Rubio Flores May 3, 2020 at 1:38 AM

Your the best Steve I'm a cradle Catholic who shares many traits with you, I once left the mother ship and got onto that raft you talked about and it took guys like you, Scott Hahn and Tim Staples guys who were on the other side of the fence that saw the beauty of the ins and outs of our home. Thanks Mate cause through God's grace, power was channelled through you and it got me psyched and pumped.

STEVE RAY HERE: Paul, Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Welcome back to the one holy Catholic and apostolic church! God bless you real good!

robert epperly May 13, 2020 at 9:28 AM

Thank you for clearly defining why and when is’t okay to be critical this pope. I was afraid at first to think critically of him although I knew in my heart that something was very wrong, especially when you look at the people that he promotes and surrounds himself with. I met you at the Eucharistic Conference in Charlotte in ’07 or -08 where I did a book signing for my first book Son’s of Thunder, Only Saints Get To Heaven. Be not afraid of what other’s think when you speak the truth. Blessings. Robert Epperly

RobertEpperly May 15, 2020 at 8:54 AM

Steve, what do you make of the fact that the Jsh Talmud states that Jesus is a false prophet and is in hell burning in dung or semen and Mary was a prostitute who catered to carpenters?

STEVE RAY HERE: I would expect nothing less from people and groups who hated Jesus and denied he was the Messiah, especially by the time the Talmud was written and they began to see the future — the Christians gaining the predominance in society.

RobertEpperly May 15, 2020 at 9:09 AM

Look Steve, you do good work, you are a brilliant man, yet unlike Christ, St. John the Baptist, and St. Maximilian Kolbe, you never name who the enemy is. Please go to the saint’s Wikipedia page and click on CONTROVERSIES. Then follow down to paragraph two. One might scoff at much of what’s on Wikipedia but in this case the facts are truly there. Remember: “One knows who their masters are by those they dare not criticize.” blessings and courage. RE

Steve Ray May 15, 2020 at 9:16 AM

Robert, I am not sure what you are referring to for sure. But I was quite clear in what I said and no one except you seems to have misunderstood me. Some people expect me to be radical and say what THEY want me to say. I prefer a certain amount of prudence along with clarity.

Craig Alexander May 23, 2020 at 7:45 AM

Dear Mr. Ray,

I first met you at Franciscan University of Steubenville a number of years ago. I was hoping to meet you again this year at Franciscan University but that has been canceled. I shared with you that I was a convert to the faith, I entered Holy Mother Church on March 26, 2005. I told you that I was discerning a call to the priesthood but I was concerned I would not be accepted because of my age. You told me about a man you knew who was older when he was accepted and became a wonderful priest. I later emailed you and you told me that your wife would add my name to the list of people she prayed for. I wish to inform you that I received a phone call one evening as I was driving to a hockey game and it was a Bishop asking me to come to his Diocese and study for the priesthood. I entered the seminary at the age of 57 and I have now completed my pre-theology studies. This coming fall I will start my theology studies. I wanted to ask you for any advice you may have as I start my theology studies? I would also like to ask you if you know of any item or product that you feel would aid me in my theology studies? Thank you for all that you do for our Lord and His Church. Would you please keep me in your prayers as I will keep you in mine?

God Bless
Craig Alexander

Hi Steve,

Looking forward to Sat morning. While in the navy, we would go to Subic Bay and pick up marines and take them to Viet Nam. Visited Manilla many time. Beautiful country with wonderful people. Thank you for what you do.


STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks Len! YOu have lived an interesting life!

LEONARD HEATH June 6, 2020 at 9:44 AM

Hi Steve,

Wow. Your talk with the Phillipino Catholics was outstanding. We Catholics in the states need to see this. We MUST be able to put aside our selfishness and anger and learn to defend our faith. Thank you for what you do.


STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks Leonard! It was fun and thanks for your generosity and kind words.

Minnie Santos September 20, 2020 at 12:45 AM

Hello Sir: Greetings from the Philippines. I am very thankful to your writings, it helped strengthen my FAITH as a Catholic. In one of your talks (i just watched it from YouTube, Peter, the Rock, the Keys, and the Chair), you mentioned about writing a book, about anything that is thrown off to the Catholics if it comes from the bible… that would be a great book if you can write about it. It will be more i think, reachable to understand. Something funny and witty, i think. Serious enough but just the same full of lessons. So many thanks to you, you have helped a lot of people in their Catholic faith more than you could ever imagine. Salamat po!

Bill Christian September 20, 2020 at 10:28 PM


Hope all is well with you and your family. Kathy and I talk about our trip with you all the time. I have an updated paper on Islam. The e-mail I have from 2015 did not work. If you want to update it on your site let me know were to send it.

I reverted to the Catholic faith last year. Among many other apologetic videos, your "Are you Born Again?" clip on YouTube was life-changing and helpful in my journey. I really appreciate how you address complicated issues. Thank you for your untiring work for the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

If possible, can you please email me your work address? I would love to share my reversion book with you.

David B. Monier-Williams October 15, 2020 at 6:39 PM

Steve as a cradle Catholic educated by the English Benedictines in the late 40’s I was fortunate enough to get as whiff of apologetics at Public School. at St. Gregory’s Downside. I’m now far away from there in Phoenix AZ. I found your wonderful videos on YouTube during the Virus.

Needing much more basics about our Faith, I’ve watched many of your videos some many times over for they are both full of information so well presented and entertaining in such easy to swallow bites. You are my Rock for the Flock.

For a slightly different and more serious experience, I watch the videos of Dr. Brant Pitre. In England he would be called, Peter, just as Ralph is often pronounced, Rafe. Unless you’re a lab dish…LOL. I wish I could say I watch Hahn but …

So there you have it. You’re my Rock for the Flock and Peter is flavouring.

Keep up the good work, I wish I’d found you sooner as I would have loved to go to the Holy Land with you and your wife. Bestens! David

Brendan Battle November 14, 2020 at 3:55 PM

Any chance of making one of your Holy Land pilgrimages in 2021 or 2022 a Holy Land II pilgrimage?

STEVE RAY HERE: Unhappily, for several reasons it would not be possible but maybe after things get back closer to normal. Thanks for asking and watch my site for updates. We will also send out periodic e-mail updates.

jonas de leon November 24, 2020 at 6:34 AM

Hi Steve, I would like to see the article that you've posted about 500 reasons on why to be a Catholic and you left it on the door of the church where Luther posted his 95 theses. I cannot find it. Can you give me the link or a copy of it? Thank you and God bless!

STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks for writing. These were never written down and posted on my sites. And for all the reasons people submitted to me many were duplicates.

Happened is we were going to Germany in 2017 during the year of Martin Luther. Our group followed the footprint of Martin Luther throughout Germany and we argued with him along the way. Our point was to prove that the protestant reformation, or should I say “deformation” was a terrible thing for the church and brought a great schism.

Since he had nailed the 95 mL on the door of the church in Wittenberg Germany. I asked people then, to write out the reasons they are Catholic and send them to me. I printed them all out and wrap them in a scroll with a ribbon around it and I delivered it to the very same door of the Wittenberg church in Germany.

Here is a video of our group at the church when I delivered the messages in Germany

Jordan Duby December 12, 2020 at 1:07 PM

TOPIC: Santa Claus

Hi Steve! Huge fan, read several books and love them both. Bought the DVD series too, amazing. Makes it all come to life. Fan-boying aside, I wondered what you thought about Santa Claus. My wife would like our kids to believe in Santa, I feel uncomfortable with it despite believing in it myself as a child and enjoying it. Do you have thoughts on this one way or the other?

Thanks and God Bless you and your family.

STEVE RAY HERE: Jordan, thanks for writing and your kind words. And I’m glad that my humble efforts have been a blessing to you and your family. It is the grace of God and it makes my heart sing.

My parents and my wife and I had a middle ground. I think we met a good compromise. We talked about Santa Claus and had a lot of fun with it but we let the kids know when they’re old enough that it was just a fun story. We didn’t want to lie to our kids so that they would trust us when we told them Jesus and Mary were real.

But we always had a lot of fun with it. My dad used to run around the house after dark on Christmas Eve jingling bells and we all said “Santa Claus is coming, Santa Claus is coming”. we all knew it was dad and that the presents under the tree were from dad and mom, but we sure had a lot of fun running around the house shouting and screaming and enjoying the story.

It was fun, but when we were old enough we all knew it was just a fairytale but it was a fun one.

I think if you do it that way you have a happy medium and the kids know you’re always honest with them but you can also have fun as a family. I hope that helps.

Julian M. Omandam Jr. January 7, 2021 at 6:03 AM

Sir Steve,
I am a Roman Catholic from the Philippines I always see your videos about teaching about Catholic Faith. Thank you so much for that, you enlightened us very much. But I have some question for you, please explain tome Matthew 24:32. Why is it that only the FATHER alone knows the time not even the SON knows.
The you very much from the Philippines

STEVE RAY HERE: That is a good question but also an easy one to answer. And Philippians chapter 2 we are told that Jesus humbled himself and became a man. By doing so he gave up or relinquished for a time some of his attributes divinity. Before the incarnation he was spirit and everywhere but his man he gave that and became localized in the physical body. He gave up some of his prerogatives I’ve been God in order to become men. Where is the passage from the Philippians…

Philippians 2:5–7 (NAS): Christ Jesus,
6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7 but emptied Himself [i.e. laid aside His privileges], taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

Catechism 472 This human soul that the Son of God assumed is endowed with a true human knowledge. As such, this knowledge could not in itself be unlimited: it was exercised in the historical conditions of his existence in space and time. This is why the Son of God could, when he became man, “increase in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man,” and would even have to inquire for himself about what one in the human condition can learn only from experience. This corresponded to the reality of his voluntary emptying of himself, taking “the form of a slave.”

Hope that helps.

Hi Steve,

As Catholics, we believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as one God. Was Jesus pelting the sodomites with fire and brimstone? YES HE WAS. Our Bishops must denounce homosexuality.

STEVE RAY HERE: There is no condoning unrepentant homosexual sin and it’s promotion. Excommunication yes, strong action, yes! But we leave it to God to rain down the fire and brimstone ?

I was surprised and pleasantly pleased at the message that came out from the Pope in the Vatican two days ago.

To introduce Catholicism to a non-Catholic, what book of the Bible would you recommend they read

STEVE RAY HERE: I would suggest the Gospel of Saint John. After that maybe the Book of Acts.

I listened to your video on homosexuality and i want to thank you for that . My son is living with a guy and my husband and myself are beyond upset . I’m not sure on what we should do we told our son we don’t expect and never will . Just want to hear what you had to say . Thank you ! Sharon

STEVE RAY HERE: Sharon, I can only imagine your dismay. My prayers for you and your husband, and your son. At this point, he already knows what you think of his lifestype. The best you can do is love him a man made in the image of God and your son. You will not “change” him by anger, rejection or criticism.

As long as he is clear on your position and why, I would love him and embrace him and be a lifeline if and when he decides to reform his life.

Here is an article I wrote that will help you:

Hi Steve,
In 2019, I had 30 Masses said for the poor souls in Purgatory in honor of Pope St. Gregory the Great. If I remember correctly, he did the same for one of his friends.
Later that year, I was attending Mass at the tiny adoration chapel next to the Divine Mercy Parish. We would Adore Our Lord prior to/and or after daily Mass. One morning later that year, the Priest announced that it was the feast of Pope St. Gregory the Great (Sept. 3rd). I was happy to hear it.
When Mass ended, I left the Chapel and suddenly had thoughts of intentions for the Holy Rosary within a couple minutes. I remember thinking: I need to write these down or I will forget them. They are as follows:
In reparation for desecrated Hosts…
In reparation for sacrilegious receptions of the Holy Eucharist…
In reparation for unbelief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, especially among Catholics…
In reparation for lukewarm receptions of the Holy Eucharist…
For a great increase in belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, and for a great increase of love for Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
In July '20, I added: In reparation for all of my sins to the last intention.
Other intentions can be added to these. They seem to make the Holy Rosary easier to pray.
Our Great Queen is often pictured holding the Child Jesus in one arm, and the Holy Rosary with the other. She is holding the Holy Eucharist with one arm and the Holy Rosary with the other. What a great weapon Mary has given to us to combat the problems in our world and Church. The Immaculata will step on the head of the ancient enemy. I think She will be holding the Rosary when she does it.
Hope you like this Reparation Rosary. I consider it a gift to be shared. God bless you. Steve

STEVE RAY HERE: Very nice. Thanks for sharing Stephen. God bless you!!
