"Let nothing disturb you, nothing frighten you,
all things are passing,
God is unchanging.
Patience gains all,
nothing is lacking to those who love God;
God alone is sufficient."
St. Teresa of Avila, Spain, 1515 - 1582
My dear friends in Christ,
As I continue my study of the Catechism in Article 3 of Chapter Two I am reminded to know that:
The Catholic Church VENERATES the Lord's precious Body and never fails to present THE BREAD OF LIFE to the faithful.
The Church receives nourishment and strength from Sacred Scripture, from which our Heavenly Father speaks to us, His children.
God is the AUTHOR of Sacred Scripture and which was written down by man under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Catholics consider BOTH the Old and the New Testaments as Sacred.
We believe that both the books of the Old and New Testaments TEACH THE TRUTH to ALL people, Catholics and non-Catholics. These perfect books, without error, are what we must use to TEACH these TRUTHS when defending the Faith or simply sharing the Faith!
Blessings to you this lovely afternoon in October!
