Description: It’s been a tough year for the Church and it’s understandable when people ask why we remain Catholic. A typical response, seen in many blog posts over the last twelve months, has been “I don’t follow the Church.

But it also misses the greater point: we are a Church, a people in Communion. We talk more with Greg Erlandson.
