  1. 500 years ago this Halloween, Martin Luther a Catholic monk (I forget which order, but I'm sure that information is readily available) went public with his concerns about the Roman Catholic Church, kicking off the Protestant Reformation. Some of my reflections: 1) God wants us to come to a unity of faith. The Reformation shows how difficult it can be. The Protestant Catholic schism is not the only division within Christianity, but it is arguably the most obvious. 2) I recall some sentiments expressed withing Mormonism regarding how the Reformation laid the groundwork for the LDS Restoration by making "heresy" no longer punishable by death. The Restoration could only survive in a society that could tolerate (even if only just barely) religious plurality. 3) While the worst of the "bad feelings" from the Reformation are mostly behind us, there are still some anti-Catholic sentiments out there. At the same time, I hear of anti-Protestant sentiments from the Catholic side of the aisle. It seems to me that the wounds from the Protestant Reformation are still healing. Some these "you're not Christian" arguments can strick pretty close to home as a Mormon, as many of the same accusations get leveled against us (and we are not entirely free from guilt for our own brand of "Mormon superiority"). Anyone else (LDS and non-LDS here) have any reflections on the Reformation?
  2. Greetings, Friends! My name is Geoffrey Miller, Obl OSB Cam. I'm a catechist, cantor, and subdiaconate candidate at Our Lady's Maronite Catholic Parish in Austin, TX. I'm also a Camaldolese Benedictine Oblate, hence the funny letters after my name. As a twenty-five-year-old graduate student at Texas State University-San Marcos, I live the evangelical counsel of poverty by force of circumstance, not by choice. When not consuming ramen noodles or writing papers, I enjoy learning about theology, especially as it pertains to living out an authentic Catholic spirituality in the modern world. I blog at: Austin CNM | Author Archives Pomeranian Catholic Anyway, I noticed another thread had been started in which Mormons could ask a Catholic questions, so I figured, why not two threads? I'm an Eastern Catholic (Maronite), so my perspective may be slightly different. I also have formal experience in comparative religion, so hopefully, that will provide me with some unique insights to address your questions. Moreover, as a professional mathematics educator, I have learned to explain very difficult and confusing concepts in a straightforward and understandable manner. Please, ask away! Sincerely in Christ, Geoffrey
  3. In recent years, Mormonism been popping up to surprise me nearly everywhere I go. Mostly in good ways. Anyway, I took a hint from the Holy Spirit, and I've decided to open up an unofficially official Mormon-Catholic dialogue geared toward orthodox members of either religion. This will not be about debate, but rather exchange. Let's learn about each other! Pomeranian Catholic: Geoffrey's Mormon-Catholic Dialogue If anyone is interested on doing a few guest posts on the LDS faith with an educational focus, please let me know.
  4. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Geoffrey Miller. I'm a catechist, cantor, and subdiaconate candidate at Our Lady's Maronite Catholic Parish in Austin, TX. I'm also a Camaldolese Benedictine Oblate. As a twenty-five-year-old graduate student at Texas State University-San Marcos, I live the evangelical counsel of poverty by force of circumstance, not by choice. When not consuming ramen noodles or writing papers, I enjoy learning about theology, especially as it pertains to living out an authentic Catholic spirituality in the modern world. I sport a pimped-out wheelchair as well. Growing up, my best friend was LDS, but we never discussed our beliefs in depth. After his passing last summer, I've become curious about what Mormons believe and practice. I'm also writing a novel with Mormon characters, so the more I can learn, the better. Cheers and God bless!
  5. Is it sacrilegious to wear a cross, like the Catholics do? What are LDS views on this?
  6. Hi! My name is Victoria MacKenzie. I am currently Catholic, but I'm thinking of converting to Mormonisim. (If "mormonisim isn't the right word, please somebody tell me!) Several of my closest friends are Mormon, and since I go to a public school, many religious debates insued. These debates sparked my interest in the LDS religon. I have been interested for several years, but I'm just now really considering it as a choice. I would like to know where to start, as I am completly new to the concept of actually converting to this religion. I have bought a "triple" to read, but that intimidated me even more. If I should purchase additional material, please tell me. Thank you, Victoria
