Catholic Quiz Bowl

Lot's of people know of the Catholic Church, but few people are true defenders of the Faith. It takes guts and study and prayer. Also, it takes a commanding knowledge of scripture, history, and doctrine, coupled with docility to the Spirit and true humility. The good old sacrament of Confirmation helps too!

So, how about trying this quiz? Let's see where you stand so far in your studies. Did you pay attending in catechism class? Test your mettle in the fire and see if you prove to be gold! Note that I have written it from the perspective of being a Latin-rite Catholic, so keep that in mind. Also, the initial personal questions are not part of my quiz, so they don't affect your score.
