Welcome To


(pardon the redundancy)
My name is Steven Kellmeyer. My purpose is to provide an easily-referenced index to the Scriptural underpinnings of Catholic doctrine and dogma, with a minimum of exegesis. I am searching through numerous apologetics and doctrinal resources to bring together, in one place, all the Scriptural references which have historically been used in the defense of Church teaching. A list of the references used in creating this site is available. All Scripture quotations on this site are taken from the Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition. All errors in these pages are my own.

In order to gain a full understanding of Scripture, the Christian must have a grounding in how God works in covenant relations, an understanding of the relationship between Sacred Scripture and the Church of Christ, and a basic grasp of the story which Scripture tells.
Reading the Litany to Jesus in the Womb of Mary couldn't hurt....
