  1. Just tried a few different topics, and the responses were pretty good! They weren’t perfect, with a few typos and grammatical errors, but generally they were solid, with Catechism references included. Great work setting this up!

  2. Does a Catholic married in the anglican church need an annulment to marry in the catholic church?

    That’s the question I asked and it responded with;

    Invalid nonce. This means we are unable to verify the validity of the nonce. There are couple of possible reasons for this. 1. A cache plugin is caching the nonce. 2. The nonce has expired. 3. Invalid SSL certificate. 4. Network issue. Please check and try again.

    1. Thank you for trying FaithGuide and for taking the time to advise us of the response. I’m sorry to hear it didn’t work for you. I tested it myself and entered the same prompt you sent through. It worked for me and the response received is:

      The Catholic Church teaches that a valid marriage is one which has been witnessed and blessed by the proper authority of both parties. If two Catholics marry in an Anglican church, they are still considered to be married under Canon Law as long as all other requirements for validity have been met (Canon 1055). However, if either party was previously married or divorced then it may not be recognised by the Catholic Church unless there is evidence of nullity – meaning that their previous union did not meet certain conditions required for a valid marriage according to canon law. In this case, an annulment would need to be sought from the appropriate tribunal before entering into another sacramental union with someone else within Catholicism (Catechism 1629-1632). It can seem daunting but seeking out help through your local parish priest will provide guidance on how best to proceed so you don’t feel alone during this process. The Lord never abandons us; He always provides hope and healing when we turn towards Him in faith!

      So, it looks like it may have been a glitch at the moment you tried. Please try it again and let us know if you still get an error.

  3. When I asked about scientific discoveries that support the idea of a Divine creator, the response (understandably) only mentioned catholic doctrine, tradition and scripture. I wonder if this app could also include scientific, rational and philosophical information, as this is an excellent way to engage with our modern world, and in particular, young people.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Matt B. This is an interesting proposition. It is not in the scope of the App at this time as it is specifically designed to provide Catholc teaching on the selected topic. It is an interesting topic to ask AI – perhaps another app for us to consider developing!

  4. Great idea but four responses to related questions gave somewhat conflicting information. When entering “Animals in heaven” (a not unusual topic for children), the response was, in part, “… animals have souls …”. Curious about this response, I asked, “Do animals have souls?”. This time the response began, “The Catholic Church teaches that animals do not have souls.” Consequently, I re-entered “Animals in heaven” and got this opening sentence, “The Catholic Church teaches that animals have no immortal souls, and therefore do not go to heaven in the same way as humans.” Trying another tack, “Pets in heaven” the response was “The Catholic Church does not have an official teaching on whether pets can go to Heaven.” Perhaps a caution message needs to accompany the responses – eg. always check the Catechism to confirm, or similar.

  5. I found this very quick – the CCC reference evaded me until I realised it referred to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It was a very comprehensive response to my single word euthanasia. Response I received below. Thanks Annie

    The Catholic Church teaches that euthanasia is a grave violation of the divine law and an offense against human life. We believe in the sacredness of all life, from conception to natural death. The Catechism states: “Whatever its motives and means, direct euthanasia consists in putting an end to the lives of handicapped, sick or dying persons” (CCC 2277). We also recognize our responsibility for those who are suffering; we must care for them with compassion while respecting their dignity as children made in God’s image. This includes providing comfort through palliative care which seeks to alleviate pain without taking away hope or hastening death (CCC 2279-2282). Scripture references include Exodus 20:13 (“You shall not kill”) and Matthew 25:40 (“Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of these least brothers/sisters…you did it unto me”). At times when someone may be facing unbearable physical or psychological suffering due to terminal illness there can still be other options available such as sedation until they pass naturally if this is what they wish – always remembering that no matter how difficult things seem now Jesus promises us eternal peace at his side after this earthly journey has ended (John 14:2-3)
