This is a question many might ask with more than a touch of pique in their voice.

You might like not like the Catholic Church, but let me tell you what She has done for you:

The Catholic Church preserved apostolic Faith.

The Catholic Church preserved the original writings of the Apostles and the Early Church Fathers.

The Catholic Church gave you the books of the Bible and set up the  Canon of the Bible.

The Catholic Church preserved Western Civilization.

The Catholic Church christianized and civilized barbarians.

The Catholic Church established law and order.

The Catholic Church created institutions to take care of the poor and the sick.

The Catholic Church  established universities.

The Catholic Church encouraged a moral code based on reason and faith

The Catholic Church established consistent liturgical services.

So, you might not like or agree with the Catholic Church, but we all owe Her a debt of gratitude for preserving order, preserving culture and preserving Truth.
