The circumstances of the time that we are living now require a new generation of apologists.
Apologists who use new methods and approach in the defense of the Faith. Apologists who defend the Faith in its entirety (which presupposes acceptance of Vatican II).
Apologists who can uphold and teach Catholic dogmas with charity towards all. Apologists who seek Christian unity and is in dialogue with persons of various convictions.
I consider myself an apologist because I am a Catholic priest who is committed to the Faith and obedient to the Church.
Apologetics must encompass the whole content of Church Magisterium and the methods proposed by the Church through which that teaching is disseminated and communicated.
