Donal Kerr a partial pass. After all, we were all taught famine in schools on both sides of the Atlantic. Fr. Kerr’s The Catholic Church and the Famine faithfully presents a series of letters and extractions of letters by eyewitness bishops and priests during Ireland’s Holocaust. Kerr might be innocent; he might not be aware that it wasn’t famine, but a carefully-planned genocide whose perpetration required the deployment to Ireland of sixty-seven British regiments; more military force than had conquered the Indian Subcontinent.

The Catholic Church is losing members in Latin America at an increasing rate. There is even a growing number of Latin Americans who now profess no church affiliation. Protestants now make up 19 percent of the Latin American population, while another eight percent now profess no religious affiliation, a figure reaching 37 percent in Uruguay. org) 11/17/2014 (5 years ago).

Kerr shows how the Famine and consequent evictions led to rural violence and assassination and how these years also saw an increase in religious tensions as Protestant Evangelicals made an all-out effort to Protestantize Ireland. His incisive analysis charts the souring of relations between church and state and the destruction of Lord John Russell's dream of bringing a golden age to Ireland. It is quite true that landlords in England would not like to be shot like hares and partridges. Catholics, given the central position of the pope in their Church, were often accused by governments of dividing their allegiance between a foreign power-Rome-and the nation-state.

A dogma of the Catholic Church is defined as "a truth revealed by God, which the magisterium of the Church declared as binding. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: Dogma can also pertain to the collective body of the Church's dogmatic teachings and doctrine. The faithful are required to accept with the divine and Catholic faith everything the Church presents either as solemn decision or as general teaching. Yet not all teachings are dogma.

History of the Catholic Church. According to the Catholic tradition, the history of the Catholic Church begins with Jesus Christ and his teachings (c. 4 BC – c. AD 30) and the Catholic Church is a continuation of the early Christian community established by the Disciples of Jesus

Some wonder whether, like Catholic social teaching, Scripture scholarship is becoming one of the church’s best-kept secrets. There is a good argument to be made that modern biblical scholarship, begun as a Protestant enterprise, has in the last half-century seen Catholic thinkers emerge as the most respected and readable Scripture scholars. Few get beyond the story of the flood early in the Book of Genesis and the tide of begats that follows. When I was growing up as a Catholic we were really told not to read the Bible because we could not understand it, and that it was too complex for us to understand, Ms. Upchurch said.

Know your Catholic Faith, read the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
