I was trying to explain to my church planting team what Catholics (and Anglo-Catholics) believe about communion. I am no expert , being some have observed, rather low-church. It was a flying education for them in doctrine, the Reformation and church history and by the end of it they all looked utterly confused. To be honest so was I.
This morning I read How a sixteen year old explained the sacraments to her Catholic interrogator in 1554 and I found it absolutely fascinating and splendidly timely.
