The following is taken from the inaugural post on Quidquid Est, Est! It should provide some back-story to the generation of the blog.
Welcome to “Quidquid Est, Est!” The title says it all: “Whatever it is, it is!” After about an hour of pondering and googling, I decided this would sum up the blog best. Whatever it is, it is.
What is “it”? “It” is the answer to your questions. But not just any random questions. Here I seek to help you answer your deep, dark questions about life, God, religion, and the Church.
This is a blog of Apologetics (see the forthcoming post about Apologetics), specifically Catholic Apologetics, though as we will see, many of the arguments brought forward are not always from Catholic sources, nor must all of the topics here involve Catholic teaching. Some of the issues we will discuss will stem from basic questions like “Does God exist,” or “How do I know I can trust the Bible.” Neither of these questions require you to be a Catholic to answer them. Other questions might deal more directly with matters of the Catholic Faith; questions will appear involving popes, priests, sacraments, saints, Catholic dogmas and moral teachings, and even what happens to us when we die. All of these will have varying answers depending on the background of the person answering.
The purpose of this blog is not to offend or otherwise hurt others. It is to provide truth. “What is truth,” Pilate asked Jesus (John 18:38), but that rusty Roman did not wait for an answer. We, however, know the answer.
Jesus had said earlier “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14: 6).
So we begin on a journey for truth. We begin a voyage, more adventurous than that of Odysseus, Dante, Frodo and Sam, and Littlefoot from The Land Before Time. We begin a exodus from uncertainty and dismay, from insincerity and dishonesty, to Truth.
Hence the name: Whatever it is, it is.
