  3. 3. Walls, yes … bridges, no
  4. 4. Response to Reformers Sola Scriptura  Scripture AND Tradition  Church alone can interpret scripture  Latin Vulgate is the ideal translation  “And for anyone who says scripture and tradition are not equal, let him be anathema.”
  5. 5. Justification/Salvation Salvation Through Grace By Faith  Without grace, we are doomed … ○ BUT … we must cooperate with grace ○ Grace is only the beginning  Devotions and good works affirmed, but abuses (like selling indulgences) stopped Faith AND works
  6. 6. Priesthood of All Believers Hierarchy still stands The “character” of orders is indelible (permanent, unchangeable, inerasable) However … the clergy needs reform  Seminary in every diocese  Bishops must live in diocese  Priests and bishops must preach  Priestly celibacy

  10. 10. Vincentians/Charitys Vincent de Paul (1581-1660)  Focus on the poor; preach to, teach commoners Louise de Marillac  Daughters of Charity  Bypass cloister rules by taking private annual vows
  11. 11. Christian Brothers John Baptist de La Salle (1652-1719)  Educate poor children  escape poverty, crime  Began classroom teaching (not private tutors)  Considered a founder of modern education
