What Catholics Believe - Continuing the Study of the (CCC) Catechism of the Catholic Church


"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!

Greetings on the Feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1962 Calendar):

I wish to take this opportunity to welcome you to St. Blog's Parish Directory. As a Traditionalist Catholic, I wish to thank you for blogging.

Even of more worth than the CCC, I recommend the Baltimore Catechisms as well as the Catechism of the Council of Trent.

Laudetur Jesus Christus!

Dear Seminarian Matthew,

Thank you so much for visiting my blog; I feel humbly honored.

Could you tell me what the difference between the CCC and the Catechisms of Trent and Baltimore?

Thanks again for stopping by and joining me on my Journey of Faith.

Blessings, Roz
