Catholic Tradition

For LT members of any religion/denomination who love reading/collecting books on Catholicism, the Tradition, Theology, Scripture, Liturgy, the lived experience of Catholicism, Catholic Apologetics, the Magisterium, Popes past and present, etc. "Catholic" means "universal", and all views are welcome, from the most "progressive" to the most "conservative" and everything in between, as long as they are presented courteously and respectfully. Please remember to respect others' beliefs and post with charity, even where there is disagreement. Stick to issues, not personalities.
