Father Backbone Rothrock -v- Bishop Jellyfish Doherty

Episode 80

The perception we get of Bishop Jellyfish, more commonly known as Bishop Timothy L. Doherty of Lafayette, Indiana, gets really bad when we contrast him with Fr. Backbone, better known as Fr. Theodore Rothrock, a priest under the jurisdiction of Bishop Jellyfish. We’ll be talking about what’s happening here in this episode.

Catechism Of The Catholic Church

FOR PASTORS:

"The greatest tragedy in the Catholic Church is the ignorance of the laity.”—St. John Henry Cardinal Newman

What We Believe… Why We Believe It—the weekly bulletin insert to educate your parishioners!

No one disputes that today’s Catholic lacks knowledge of the faith. That's the reason so many are leaving the Church (6.5 people leave for every one who becomes a Catholic)—they simply don't know the faith. But the What We Believe… Why We Believe It system can change all that. Within a year of reading What We Believe… Why We Believe It, your parishioners will know exactly what they believe… and be able to defend those beliefs.

 What We Believe… Why We Believe It works because…

  •  It's intrusive (70% of Catholics get 100% of their information from the weekly bulletin)
  • Each issue is in engaging
  • Far from boring catechism, each issue is highly informative of orthodoxy without being “highbrow"
  • With the JoeSixpackAnswers.com website and weekly webinars, your parishioners have a source where they can ask questions when you're not available
