“There is only one reason to be Catholic—not because you love father’s homilies, not because they have great youth groups, not because the cutest girl in the world sits in that third pew—it’s because it’s true,” clinical psychologist and radio personality Dr. Ray Guarendi told students at Christendom College on November 8. “If it’s not true, get out of it. Go do what you want. But if it is true, it is everything.”
His talk entitled “Why Be Catholic?” exposed the common fallacies in the Protestant system that he discovered during his journey from evangelicalism to Catholicism.
Guarendi, a father of 10, is host for the radio show The Doctor Is In, which is featured on Ave Maria and EWTN Radio. He has been a regular guest on national radio and television, including Oprah, 700 Club, and CBS This Morning. He is the author of several books, including Discipline That Lasts a Lifetime, You’re a Better Parent Than You Think!, now in its twenty-fifth printing, and his newest book, Good Discipline, Great Teens.
