“In recent times the teaching of Apologetics has been out of favour even in Catholic circles and has been largely neglected. We have paid dearly for this neglect. …A simple proclamation of the Gospel message without being given an understanding of the rational grounds for our beliefs in God, in Jesus Christ and in the Church He founded, cannot withstand the confusing currents of ideas and hostile attacks in the modern very secular world.”  Sr. Maur Woodbury SM
