It seems like these days
I keep running into people
who are just like me
just like I was
prior to being confirmed Catholic
full of preconceived
notions, some true, some completely untrue
about what the Catholic Church believes
Just because you are Catholic
Just because you have a few friends that are Catholic
you don’t necessarily know what the official “Catholic” teaching is on a topic.
I had many misconceptions growing up and perhaps you do too.
The worst thing is …..is that it is many Catholics(uneducated in the true catechism of the Catholic church) that perpetuate the many myths, mysteries and misunderstandings about the beliefs(doctrine) of the Church.
So…just what is the Catechism of the Catholic Church?
The United States Council of Catholic Bishops even have it available for free…online.
Do you want to know what the Catholic Church really says about
The Nicene Creed? as basis for beliefs of Catholicism
The Life of Jesus?
Mary?(and the catholic devotion to, NOT worship of)
modern “Objections to Prayer”?
The Summary of the whole Gospel(the good news)?
of Catholocism…. I’ve studied enough to know….there’s more I can learn.
and if this post helps dispel some of the misconceptions of the catholic church for even one person
it is the work of God
and I am grateful.
