Steve Ray is Here!
World-renowned Catholic convert and apologist Steve Ray is in the country to give talks on the Bible, salvation history, and Catholic apologetics. From July 19-21, he will be at St. James the Great Parish in Ayala, Alabang from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. He will also give a talk at De La Salle Zobel from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the same dates. The talk is free and open to the public. He has been going around the country for almost a week now giving talks here and there and I only caught him last night over DZMM Salitang Buhay with Fr. Bel San Luis and Fr. Jerome Marquez, both SVD priests along with Ms. Ilsa Reyes. The topic was on Marian devotion and dogmas which has always been a tough and controversial issue especially among non-Catholics.
Man, this guy can give you a power-packed point by point lecture on apologetics complete with Bible references and magisterial teachings right on the spot! He is such a zealous defender of the faith and he wants to arm the Catholic laity with the tools on how we can defend our faith from the attacks of other sects and Christian denominations. Being a former Baptist himself, you would not believe how deep is his understanding and knowledge of the faith which he gained from reading books, researches, and extensive travels to the Holy Land and other parts of the world until you sit down and listen to him speak. This fiery speaker is also the host of the EWTN program Footprints of God.
