Please help Rekindle our faith by sharing with a fellow Catholic today, let’s build up our faith.
Remember too that the Catholic Church predates the New Testament, in the sense that the Church Christ founded was nourished and governed, after his death with Tradition until fading memories ocassioned the commital of memorised events into writing- about seventy years after.
The New Testament Epistles were written to specific christian communities that were already established and run by Tradition(words and practices from Jesus) So far, no one historian has succeeded in disproving this.
So, the Church is governed by Scripture, Tradition and Magisterium. *I AM PROUD TO BE A CATHOLIC.* Are you?
