Many non-Catholics, former Catholics, or even some practicing Catholics have asked that question. 

Some Catholic beliefs can seem outrageous or even unbelievable – such as:
1. The Eucharist – How can Catholics believe the bread and wine are really the body and blood of Christ?

2. Confession – Why do Catholics air their dirty laundry (and to a priest, of all people)?

3. The Mystical Body of Christ – Isn’t our Faith individual and personal?

4. Mary – Catholics pray to Mary? Isn’t that idolatry?

5. The Pope – Who put him in charge? Can’t we just manage on our own?
