About Waking Up Catholic
The mission of this website is to give new Catholics, those going through the RCIA process, Catholics looking to reawaken their faith, and even those who are looking into faith the first time, a resource and guide on their journey of faith.
What It Is... And What It Is Not
This site is a resource to guide your learning. At all times, WakingUpCatholic.com will try to stay true to the teachings of the Catholic Church by validating the information with scripture, the Catechism, and other scholarly resources. I hope to inspire you to a deeper faith. I hope to challenge your theological understanding. By the time we are done, I hope that you have grown from this experience.
This site is not the end; it is the beginning. Do not end your studies here. By giving you scripture and Catechism references, I hope that you will learn to use those tools for yourself. This does not have all of the answers. I am not a scholar. I am not a priest. I am a guy that went through RCIA and went searching for answers. Hopefully, by sharing the answers that I am finding along the way, I can plant the seed of a deeper faith within you, as well.
One of my long-term goals is to write a book on the same subject. Actually, it is more of a short-term goal. The book will be more in-depth on each subject, and it will challenge you even more. Like you, I have had my share of questions. As I write each chapter, it will share with you my doubts and fears, my raw emotions as I experience everything the Catholic Church has to offer, and a summation of what I learned from the ordeal. By supporting this site (and sharing it with ALL of your friends), you will help me to accomplish this dream.
Thank you for all of your love and support. I hope that this site can help you in some way. Feel free to contact me anytime.
