Catechism of the Catholic Church (contd.)
The objective of the Catechism is to teach the truth of the deposits of faith handed down from the Apostles. One’s subjective reasoning on the faith of the Church today should be informed by this reality.
Pope St. John Paul ii- “the deposits of faith is the mission which the Lord entrusted to his Church and which she fulfills in every age,” and it is in the grace of these deposits of faith that she offers her children the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so that they may grow in the love and knowledge of the one true God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Catechism outlines points of doctrine touching on
Fundamental theology, liturgies morals, and prayer deepen our faith in the Twelve Articles of Faith, the Seven Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, and the Seven petitions of the Our Father. Its primary focus is on what God has done for us and what we ought to do in return.
We hope that this short synopsis of the Catechism will encourage you the reader to hear the Lord as he says, I am the Lord, I speak the Truth, I proclaim what is right (Isaiah,45).
May you draw near to Jesus Christ as he proclaims his truth evident in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
