Dubito, ergo sum

Are you a Catholic who deals with doubts about your Catholic faith?  Atheist-turned-Catholic Jennifer Fulwiler has some good tips for you!  I was always reminded of Bl. John Henry Newman's famous dictum, "Ten thousand difficulties do not equal one doubt."  He was distinguishing "doubt" from "difficulty" so as to make the former more serious than the latter.  Fine with me: just realize, O chary reader, that Jesus came to take away our sins, not our brains--so feel free to investigate.  The Truth is the Truth, and will withstand our best assaults as a stone wall resists even a volley of popcorn.
