The Mind Meanderings of a Millenial Catholic is a collections of essays and social media posts and comments from author Oliver J. Olinger. In today's atmosphere of political turmoil, social unrest, and secular chaos, many a sublime answer and solution can be found in the timeless teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church. In this book, Oliver tackles issues ranging from marriage to education, to politics and elections, to the crisis taking place within the Church, and much more... including the occasional, humorous interlude. The majority of the content of The Mind Meanderings of a Millenial Catholic has been taken from online forum discussions and debates, mostly on Facebook. The author backs up his claims and ideas with a thorough knowledge of the history of the Catholic Church traditions and teachings, Vatican decrees, Papal pronouncements and encyclicals, Councils and Synods, and more to the tune of 15+ years of intensive self-study, and authoritative, ecclesiastical instruction. Throughout every entry you, the reader, will find a general theme of Faith, Hope, and Charity... the three theological virtues which lead to salvation. These virtues often get lost in a sea of technicalities and overly-scrupulous interpretations. In this book, you will see that these three, simple virtues are actually the foremost tenets of the Catholic religion... and when they are applied to the problems of the world, sensible answers tend to present themselves where previously only confusion and strife could be seen.
