My First Post
It took a while but, I finally made it back to Catholicism. I left the Church for the same reason why many people have left—scandal—and I wasn’t properly catechized as a child. However, through the power of podcast and prayer, I have made my way back to the Church Christ established on Earth. The Holy Spirit also helped along the way.
My name is Ryan Taylor, and this is my Substack Blue Collar Catholic. What is Blue Collar Catholic going to be about? My goal is to reach people like me—the forgotten, blue-collar middle: people that work with their hands, deliver your packages, and do jobs that most Americans don’t want to do.
I plan on evangelizing through this Substack by talking about the problems we face today with the help of Jesus and Church teaching. The Catholic Church is the Church that Jesus Christ established on Earth and has been going strong for more than two thousand years. The Church Magisterium has a lot to offer people like us. Family problems, economic problems, job problems, and much more have all been covered by the Magisterium of the Church.
Rome has spoken. The Magisterium is the Catholic Church’s office of teaching and authentic interpretation of the Word of God. The task of interpretation of the Word has been entrusted to the Pope and the bishops through history. This history is vast and has a lot to offer the people of the world. The Church also has other teachings from the saints as well. Saints like Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, John Chrysostom, and many more. The knowledge of the Church is vast, and I hope to bring it to the world.
Thank you all in taking the time to read this. I do not have any experience in journalism so like you, I am on this adventure as well. With help from my family, The Catholic Church and prayer I hope to bring the Catholic Church into your lives. God Bless and have a great day.
