Ask Father Marty

NOTICE: Fr. Marty is now accepting emails. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask! -Br. Vito

I’m Father Marty Pable, a priest, psychologist, and friar with the Capuchin Franciscans. I’ve spent many years talking with people about their questions, concerns, and sometimes their personal troubles in life and on their faith journey. I enjoy answering questions about being a Catholic and what we believe as Catholic Christians.

I know there are many people, Catholic and otherwise, who have questions about what Catholics believe – and why. There are others who are “spiritual seekers,” meaning that they may not belong to any church, but they are searching for something to believe in – a way to make sense of life and its stresses. People have questions about the existence and nature of God, questions about the Bible, about prayer, about the connections between faith and science, about ethics and morality, and much more.

No matter where you are in your faith journey, I welcome your questions and concerns. I will not “preach to you” or try to convert you; I will respect your own process. I will only try to answer your questions the best I can, and leave you free to decide the next step. I am deeply convinced that God loves each of us and guides us all in our search for faith.

If you wish to connect with me, just fill out the form below. I may not be able to respond immediately, but I will do so as soon as possible. Be assured that our conversations will be kept confidential. Any questions or messages will not be posted on Br. Vito’s blog or any other chat room or message board.

Thank you, and may God bless you.

Fr. Marty Pable, OFM Cap.
