WHY should ANYONE be a Catholic?
In a Word: TRUTH
If anyone sincerely SEEKS God’s assistance in FINDING HIS TRUTHS, with perseverance; God WILL lead them to His RCC
Benedict says: “If we omit the truth, what do we do anything for?”
“Their cannot be your truth and my truth or there would be no truth” [irrefutable logic}
FATHER HARDON, one of the most esteemed theologians of the 20th Century} taught this about TRUTH:
“Truth is the condition of grace, it is the source of grace, it is the channel of grace, it is the divinely ordained requirement of grace.” …
God’s truth CANNOT be found without the grace to do so. But grace is an OFFER and can & often is rejected or misused. Thus the need for perseverance.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH THE ACCEPTED MULTIPLICITY OF COMPETING FAITHS AND CHURCHES; all calling themselves “Christian”; MUCH confusion reigns, as so many are agreeable to accepting their own truth or the truth they WANT.
Yet historically, biblically & even TRUE-Commonsense-logic confirms that TRUTH [without the benefit of self interpretation/ or redefinition of same Ordains that there can be and IS:
Only One True God
Who can have nothing more than One True set of Faith beliefs
& who [Yahweh] choose ONLY “One Chosen People”; which Jesus [ the very same GOD] replicates by establishing just “MY Church” [singular, and as every "church is identified by their own freely chosen set of “faith-beliefs”; one can discern that the very multiplicity of these faiths, fail the singular TRUTH test.
Add to this that the RCC existed for some 1,500 YEARS before the Reformation; and the LOGIC of the RCC ought to be SCREAMINGLY Clear.
So seek GOD’s Truth and become one of His Catholics.
