•"But the word of the Lord abides
for ever.‟ That word is the good
news which was preached to you"
(1 Pet. 1:25) St. Peter

•"So faith comes from what is
 heard, and what is heard comes
by the preaching of Christ"
(Rom. 10:17).
•“And what you have heard from
me through many witnesses
entrust to faithful people who will
be able to teach others as well”
( 2 Tim 2:2)

•"stand firm and hold to the
traditions which you were taught
by us, either by word of mouth or
by letter" (2 Thess. 2:15).
First of all you must understand
this, that no prophecy of scripture
      is a matter of one's own
            interpretation.
            ( 2 Peter 1:20)
There are some things in them hard
 to understand, which the ignorant
   and unstable twist to their own
  destruction, as they do the other
               scriptures.
             (2 Peter 3 :16)
So Philip ran to him, and heard
him reading Isaiah the prophet,
and asked, "Do you understand
what you are reading?" And he
said, "How can I, unless some one
guides me?" And he invited Philip
to come up and sit with him. Acts
8:31-31

Council of Jerusalem – Acts 15
• The word “Church” (Latin ecclesia)
  originally meant a convocation or
  assembly gathered for a religious
  purpose.
• In Christian usage the word “church”
  refers to the worshipping community,
  the local community or “parish” and
  the entire universal community of
  believers. (CCC, 751 – 752)
• In the Old Testament God called the
  chosen people of Israel to be his holy
  people.
• In the New Testament, Jesus calls his
  disciples to form a community of faith
  as the people of the New Covenant.
  Jesus inaugurates the Church through
  his preaching and teaching and in His
  total self-giving on the cross (CCC, 763
  – 766) Eph 2: 19-22
• Pope Pius XII –Encyclical on the Mystical
  Body, said “it is the society of those who
  have been baptized, and who profess the
  faith of Christ, and who are governed by
  their bishops under the visible head, the
  Pope, the Bishop of Rome.”
• St. Paul speaks of all Christians as members
  of Christ, so that with Him, they form one
  Mystical Body (Cf. 1 Cor 12:12-31; Col 1:18;
  2:18-20; Eph. 1:22-23; 3:19; 4:13)

            Communio
            Sanctorum
           (Communion
             of Saints)
This expression also refers to the communion
between holy persons (sancti); that is, between
those who by grace are united to the dead and
risen Christ. Some are pilgrims on the earth;
others, having passed from this life, are
undergoing purification and are helped also by
our prayers. Others already enjoy the glory of
God and intercede for us. All of these together
form in Christ one family, the Church, to the
praise and glory of the Trinity – CCC 961-962
For though we live in the world we
are not carrying on a worldly war,
for the weapons of our warfare are
not worldly but have divine power
to destroy strongholds.

• FACILITATORS: WHAT
  DO I LIKE ABOUT THE
  CATHOLIC CHURCH?
The term “Catholic Church”
was used first by St.
Ignatius of Antioch (c. 100
A.D.) who in his letter to the
Smyrnaens wrote: “Where
Jesus Christ is, there is the
catholic Church”
(Smyrn. 8:2).
     “The Church in Antioch”
          Acts 11:19-30
Nicene Creed


     We believe in One, Holy,
     Catholic and Apostolic
             Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the
forgiveness of sins. We look for the
resurrection of the dead, and the life of the
world to come. Amen.
There is one body and one
  Spirit, just as you were
called to the one hope that
 belongs to your call, one
    Lord, one faith, one
  baptism, one God and
  Father of us all, who is
 above all and through all
and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6
THE CHURCH IS HOLY




  (Eph 5:25-27, Rev 19:7-8,
       CCC 823-829)
THE CHURCH IS HOLY
      By his grace
 Jesus makes the Church
           holy,
    just as he is holy.
  This doesn’t mean that
  each member is always
   holy. Jesus said there
 would be both good and
bad members in the Church
        (John 6:70).
THE CHURCH IS HOLY

But the Church itself is Holy
        because it is
  the source of Holiness
   and is the guardian of
the special means of grace
     Jesus established,
      the sacraments
        (Eph. 5:26).
THE CHURCH IS HOLY



The Holy Spirit, whom Christ
  the head pours out on his
members, builds, animates,
 and sanctifies the Church..
          CCC 747
THE CHURCH IS CATHOLIC




  (Matt 28:19-20, Rev 5:9-10,
         CCC 830-856)
THE CHURCH IS CATHOLIC

 Jesus’ Church is called
 catholic ("universal" in
          Greek)
because it is his gift to all
          people.
He told his apostles to go
throughout the world and
    make disciples of
       "all nations“
    (Matt. 28:19–20).
UNIVERSAL
THE CHURCH IS APOSTOLIC




(Matt 16:19, Eph 2:19-20, Rev 5:9-10,
            CCC 856-865)
• “You are Peter, and
   on this rock I will
  build MY CHURCH,
    and the gates of
     hades will not
   prevail against it.”
     • (Matt 16:18)
AUTHORITY AND INFALLIBILITY
• I will give you the keys
  of the Kingdom of
  Heaven, and whatever
  you bind on earth will
  be bound in heaven,
  and whatever you loose
  on earth will be loosed
  in heaven."
• Matthew 16:19
APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION
•“For I received from the
 Lord what I also handed
      on to you…”
       1 Cor 11:23

•“For I handed on to you
  as of first importance
  what I also received”
        1 Cor 15:3
This is the most basic
  meaning of Catholic
 Tradition; it is the true
  faith itself, given to
 apostle by Christ and
faithfully transmitted to
 each new generation.
       CCC 77-78
•The Magisterium is protected from error
    and guided by the Holy Spirit who
“reminds and guides to all truth” thereby
gives us certainty in matters of doctrine ;
             (John 16:12-13)

•“ and whatever you bind on earth will be
   bound in heaven, and whatever you
loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
             •Matthew 16:19            61
“"He who listens to you listens to me, and he
  who rejects you rejects me and who ever
  rejects me, rejects the one who sent me."
                 (Luke 10:16).
• The Catholic Church considers all
  goodness and truth found in
  these religions as “a preparation
  for the Gospel and given by him
  who enlightens all men that they
  at length have life. (CCC 843)
• Those who, through no fault of
  their own, do not know the
  Gospel of Christ or his Church,
  but who nevertheless seek God
  with a sincere heart, and, moved
  by grace, try in their actions to do
  his will as they know it through
  the dictates of their conscience –
  those too may achieve eternal
  salvation. (CCC 847)
SALVATION FOR THE
    IGNORANT?
• "Although in ways known to
  himself God can lead those
  who, through no fault of their
  own, are ignorant of the Gospel,
  to that faith without which it is
  impossible to please him, the
  Church still has the obligation
  and also the sacred right to
  evangelize all men."(CCC 848)
“So then, my beloved, obedient as you
  have always been, not only when I
  am present but all the more now
  when I am absent, work out your
  salvation with fear and trembling.
               Phil 2:12

    „Not everyone who says to me,
      "Lord, Lord" shall enter the
          Kingdom of heaven‟
             (Matt. 7:21)."
"I have fought the good
 fight, I have finished the
race, I have kept the faith.
Henceforth there is laid up
    for me the crown of
righteousness, which the
Lord, the righteous judge,
 will award to me on that
            Day"
       (2 Tim. 4:7-8)
71
“I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS TO THE END OF
                AGE”
             (Matt 28:20).

  • 58. •“For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you…” 1 Cor 11:23 •“For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received” 1 Cor 15:3
  • 59. This is the most basic meaning of Catholic Tradition; it is the true faith itself, given to apostle by Christ and faithfully transmitted to each new generation. CCC 77-78
  • 60.
  • 61. •The Magisterium is protected from error and guided by the Holy Spirit who “reminds and guides to all truth” thereby gives us certainty in matters of doctrine ; (John 16:12-13) •“ and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." •Matthew 16:19 61

  • 68. “So then, my beloved, obedient as you have always been, not only when I am present but all the more now when I am absent, work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Phil 2:12 „Not everyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter the Kingdom of heaven‟ (Matt. 7:21)."
  • 69. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day" (2 Tim. 4:7-8)
