A List of Some Good Practicing Famous Catholics

The following is a small sample of some famous Catholic people who are faithful to the authentic Teaching of the Catholic Church. This is not a definitive list. LPCA has done its very best to show that a famous Catholic person is faithful to the authentic Teaching of the Church, by posting citations for each person. Since humanity is weak, it is possible that a famous Catholic person listed below can fall into mortal sin for example. LPCA will do its best to make appropriate changes to the list when needed, if discovered a Catholic celebrity is unfaithful to Christ and His Church. LPCA is not responsible for any statements and opinions made by any of the famous Catholics listed. If you are interested in getting more information about the fidelity of a famous Catholic person to the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church, contact EWTN's TV Viewer Response Department, EWTN's Q&A Section, and Insidecatholic.com for more information.
