Part 3 What does the word "apologetics" mean? The word "apologetics" is derived from the ancient Greek word apologia, which means, an apology.
Not an apology in the modern sense of the word - which is to say you're sorry for something. But rather, an apology in the ancient sense of the word - which is to make a reasoned defense of something or someone.
In ancient times, the word apology referred to the case a lawyer would make on behalf of his client.
Apologetics is about building the case for our Faith Basically, there are 3 types of apologetics: Natural apologetics builds the case for truths we can know from the "natural" light of reason.
Truths that can be known without any divine intervention. Truths which the articles of our Faith rest upon and build upon. Truths such as the existence of God, the innate spirituality of the human soul, the objective reality of right and wrong Christian apologetics, on the other hand, builds the case for divinely revealed truths - truths that cannot be known by reason apart from faith.
Truths such as the reality of biblical miracles, the divinity of Christ, the Virgin Birth, and the Resurrection to name a few. Catholic apologetics encompasses all of Christian apologetics - since Catholicism is the fullness of Christianity - but Catholic apologetics tends to focus on those truths of Christianity that are not generally believed by non-Catholic Christians.

Pray that He will give you the courage to share your Faith and the wisdom to choose your words carefully and profitably.
