Answer by Richard Geraghty on 08-18-2013:

Dear Holly,

You are not going to be able explain to a Jehovah Witness passages from scripture showing the the Catholic Church is the true Church. He or she has been taught to reject such explanations. The best you can do is to say that you are a Catholic and then invite them to consult a Catholic web site for a fuller explanation. The reason why one is a Catholic is because one believes in the Catholic Church as one's authority for interpreting The Scriptures. It is not because one understands the mysteries in which he believes. He accepts the Church as his guide. That should be the end of the discussion.

Dr. Geraghty
