The Catechism

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

The Christian Faith is the firm conviction, arrived at with the grace of God, that all that Jesus Christ taught on earth is true, as well as all that the Catholic Church teaches by the commission she has received from Him.

The Catechism Explained

by Spirago-Clarke

ORIGIN OF THE ROMAN CATECHISM

The Church at the Council of Trent, assembled December 13, 1545, seeing the need of a uniform and comprehensive manual which would supply parish priests with an official book of instruction for the faithful, ordered the preparation of the work which has ever since been variously known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent, the Catechism for Parish Priests, the Roman Catechism, or the Catechism of Pius V. It was some months, however, after the opening of the Council before mention was made of any kind of catechism. This was during the fourth session, on April 5, 1546. Eight days later the draft of a decree was read proposing that there be published in Latin and in the vernacular a catechism to be compiled by capable persons for children and uninstructed adults, “who are in need of milk rather than solid food.” The purpose of such a manual was to afford instruction for beginners in the primary duties of a Christian life and to prepare them for further and higher religious education. The idea met with general approval, but as the Council was occupied with matters more pressing, we hear nothing further.

I THE CATECHISM EXPLAINED

It is most important in those  days of unbelief that the school should be the means of reviving a Christian spirit in the family. Hence it is advisable that the Catechist should take care the chief points and the plan his instruction from a book, and it should not be left to each individual to propound what truths he pleases. Besides, it is desirable the the Catechumens themselves should have the essential part of the instruction placed before them in black and white; for it is a know fact the what is not seen by the eye is not long retained by the memory. If the impression received, the feeling excited, the resolutions called forth are to be permament, they must be re wakened by reading the Catechism. Thus the Catechism becomes not merely a class-book, but a book of spirtitual reading, to be taken up again and re-read in after years. Hence we see what a wide sphere of of usefulness the books used in our schools may have. Ought a book whose influence is so extensive, which contains the most of all teaching, present that teaching in a dry, uninteresting form, orgive a scanty outline, the mere framework of the thruths of religion ?

CATECHISM: is concise instruction how we are holy and happy according
to the true according to the true doctrine of Jesus, as know to us
from Holy Scripture, tradition, and the decisions of the Church.

II WHAT WE BELIEVE Videos

On a whole, we traditional Catholics believe that the heresies of modernism, secularism and progressivism, condemned by Pope Pius X, have caused all the problems in the Catholic Church and is very much alive and active today in almost every part of the Church’s Sacraments and hierarchy. The heresy of modernism was condemned in the encyclical

Pascendi Domini Gregis By Pope Pius X Sept. 8, 1907

III THE MEANING OF A CATECHISM

A catechism is any book made up in question and answer form, no matter what it treats of. We have catechisms of history, of geography, etc. Our Catechism is a book in the same form treating of religion. It is a little compendium of the truths of our religion, of all we must believe and do. It contains, in the simplest form, all that a priest learns during his many years of study. The theology he learns is only a deeper and fuller explanation of the Catechism. A whole book might be written on almost every question. For example, might we not write a book on each of the first three questions—the World, God, and Man? There is consequently much meaning in the Catechism, which must be made known to us by explanation. You should therefore learn the Catechism by heart now, even when you do not fully understand it; because afterwards, when you read books on religion or hear sermons, all these questions and answers will come back to your mind. Sermons will help you to understand the questions, or the questions will help you to understand the sermons.

******************************

The Catechism

Learn the Faith!

Pope St. Pius X:We are forced to agree with those who hold that the chief cause of the present indifference and, as it were, infirmity of soul, and the serious evils that result from it, is to be found above all in ignorance of things divine. And so, Our Predecessor Benedict XIV had just cause to write: “We declare that a great number of those who are condemned to eternal punishment suffer that everlasting calamity because of ignorance of those mysteries of faith which must be known and believed in order to be numbered among the elect” –Acerbo Nimis (April 15, 1905)

The Catechism is arranged in four principal parts:

1) The Profession of Faith (the Apostle’s Creed) 

 2) The Celebration of the Christian Mystery (the Sacred Liturgy, and  especially the sacraments)

3) Life in Christ (including the Ten Commandments)

4) Christian Prayer (including the Lord’s Prayer)

 

Why did God make you? A. God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in the next.
