031: Was the Early Church the Catholic Church? (w/ Mike Aquilina) October 30, 2019

In this episode, I’m joined by Mike Aquilina, best-selling author of over fifty books on Catholic history, doctrine, and devotion to talk about the Early Church.

We talk about the visible structure of the Early Church, how the very first Christians valued Catholic practices like veneration of relics and what the very early worship services looked like. With such a preponderance of evidence, Mike walks us through how the Early Church was, in fact, the Catholic Church.

For more from Mike please visit his website. Mike also recommends two of his books to get started, they’re available on his website or through Amazon.

The Apostles and Their Times and The Fathers of the Church
