What is an “Apologist”? Does it mean saying sorry?

An Apologist is someone who speaks in defence of a doctrine or belief. In the case of Steve Ray, it means he defends or vindicates the teaching and beliefs of the Catholic Church.  Some of the earliest Christian apologists were St Paul, St Justin Martyr and St Irenaeus.  The modern term “apology” derives from this but has acquired the different meaning of expressing regret for a fault.

So being an Apologist doesn’t mean you always have to say you’re sorry!
