⁣Here on the Ecu-Men, we are continuing our journey through the Baltimore Catechism. Today in Lesson 2, Part 2, the Ecu-Men are going to cover the transmission of the deposit of the faith which God has bestowed upon us. This is how we learn about God, His Church, creation, etc. As you listen, please feel free to use the links below to learn more about this topic so that you can get even more familiar with the topic.

23a. What do we mean when we say that God has revealed these truths to us?
He has made them known to certain persons, to be announced to their fellow men as the word of God.

23b. What is the Bible?

The Bible is the written word of God, committed to His Church for the instruction and sanctification of mankind.

23c. What do we mean when we say that the entire Bible is inspired?

Its principal author is God, though it was written by men whom God enlightened and moved to write all those things, and only those things that He wished to be written.

23d. How is the Bible divided?

The Bible is divided into the Old Testament, written before the coming of Jesus Christ, and the New Testament, written after His ascension into heaven.

23e. Are all the passages of the Bible to be understood according to our modern manner of expression?

No; some of the passages of the Bible are not to be understood according to our modern manner of expression, since they contain certain figures of speech, parables, and literary forms used by the people of ancient times but not employed in the present.

23f. How can we know the true meaning of the Bible?

We can know the true meaning of the Bible from the teaching authority of the Catholic Church, which has received from Jesus Christ the right and the duty to teach and to explain all that God has revealed. (II Peter 3:16)

23g. Are Catholics encouraged by the Church to read the Bible?

Yes; Catholics are encouraged by the Church to read the Bible, especially the Gospels, which tell about the earthly life of Jesus Christ, the Son of God made man.

23h. What is the chief message of the New Testament?

The chief message of the New Testament is the joyful announcement of our salvation through Jesus Christ. (John 20:31)

23i. What is Divine Tradition?

Divine Tradition is the unwritten word of God – that is, truths revealed by God, though not written in the Bible, and given to the Church through word of mouth by Jesus Christ or by the apostles under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

23j. Has Divine Tradition ever been committed to writing?

Divine Tradition has been committed to writing, especially by saintly writers called Fathers, who lived in the early centuries but were not inspired, as were those who wrote the Bible.

23k. Has Divine Tradition the same force as the Bible?

Yes; Divine Tradition has the same force as the Bible, since it too contains God's revelation to men.

23l. By what kind of act do we believe the doctrines contained in the Bible and in Divine Tradition?

We believe the doctrines contained in the Bible and Divine Tradition by an act of divine faith, which means that we accept them on the authority of God, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

The white blanket of that August night symbolises Mary, pure as the driven snow, her blessings and graces, numerous and varied as the falling snowflakes.

⁣The Ecu-Men Present: Baltimore Catechism - Lesson 01

If you haven't checked out the introduction to the Ecu-Men, please go here: https://youtu.be/hZQoKM9MpS4

Welcome to the first podcast of the series dedicated to expanding Catholic understanding of the foundational principles of our faith as given to us by the successors of the Apostles through the Baltimore Catechism.

Here in Lesson 1, we start out with the “End of Man” and his purpose in this world. Please check out the links below and feel free to throw us any comments or questions you have; we’re always happy to answer.

+JMJ+

Lesson 1:

1. Who made us? -- God made us.

2. Who is God? -- God is the Supreme Being, infinitely perfect, who made all things and keeps them in existence.

3. Why did God make us? -- God made us to show forth His goodness and to share with us His everlasting happiness in heaven.

4. What must we do to gain the happiness of heaven? -- To gain the happiness of heaven we must know, love, and serve God in this world.

5. From whom do we learn to know, love, and serve God? -- We learn to know, love, and serve God from Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who teaches us through the Catholic Church.

6. Where do we find the chief truths taught by Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church? -- We find the chief truths taught by Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church in the Apostles' Creed.

7. Say the Apostles' Creed. -- I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Communion in the Hand and DIY Christianity
4:55
Radio Immaculata
107 Views · 7 days ago

⁣In the name of the epidemic caused by the Coronavirus, attempts have been made to impose Communion on the hand as a healthier way. This is all to be proven. But the real problem is theological: Communion on the hand is an indult and not a universal law that conveys an idea of Christianity, as well as of the Mass and the Eucharist. Why not start with Communion in the mouth and on the knees to reverse a trend that now seems inexorable: the emptying of our parishes. Could we not also make this a pastoral experiment?

Manner to Receive Holy Communion
32:36
Radio Immaculata
62 Views · 9 days ago

Jesus said "I am the Bread of Life". We need this Bread for Eternal Life. We desire to be drawn into the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross to humble ourselves as Our Master. We must have this humility and profess this mystery in the manner which we recieve Holy Communion on the knee and on the "throne" of the tongue.

The Virgin Mary a mere disciple?
5:33
Radio Immaculata
24 Views · 9 days ago

Is the Blessed Virgin Mary simply a "Discilple of the Master" Jesus Christ or can we say more about the Mother. Can we even dare to say as the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church, that She is the Coredemptrix standing for our redemoption under Christ at the foot of the Cross.

Roman Catechism of Trent (RCT) presents its introductory video to a several-year project of commentary on the "Catechism of the Council of Trent." This 16th century catechism is the only infallible catechism produced by the Catholic Church. Pope Clement XIII wrote that the Roman Catechism contains "that teaching which is the common doctrine of the Church, from which all danger of doctrinal error is absent." This video is presented by Fr. David Nix on the Padre Peregrino channel.

"Sometimes we are caught off guard by certain symptoms of pleasure immediately following a temptation. At most, this can only be a very slight venial sin. However, it becomes greater if, after we perceived the evil that has befallen us, we carelessly delay for some time and dally with the pleasure to decide whether we ought to allow or reject it. The sin becomes still greater, if, after becoming aware of the pleasure, we dwell on it for some time through downright negligence and without any determination to reject it. When we voluntarily and with full deliberation resolve to take pleasure in such delights, this deliberate purpose is of itself a grave sin if the object in which we take delight is also very evil."—St. Francis De Sales in "Introduction to the Devout Life," Chapter 4 part 6 on "How temptation and pleasure may become sinful."
