As any detective will tell you, no investigation is quite so complete as an on-the-spot investigation. Hence, dear reader, if you are a Protestant, an unaffiliated Christian, or an agnostic, who wants to know the truth about Catholic belief, read this little booklet.

Read this booklet; then forget all the fiction you have heard about the Catholic Church, for you will have the gospel truth. Hidden With Christ In Godby Fr. Patrick J.
