My Catholic beliefs


I’m a Catholic, Latin Rite  I believe in-

God, the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit-the Trinity, Three in One!

Mary, Mother of God, Immaculately conceived, ever virgin, assumed into heaven, our Mother

Peter, our first Pope (yes, I know they didn’t call him Pope!) and an unbroken succession, for 2000 years…

12 Apostles-Peter at their head, our first bishops

The Four Marks-One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic

10 Commandments

7 Sacraments-Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Eucharist, Marriage, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick

6 Precepts of the Church-To go to Mass and refrain from servile work on Sundays and holy days, To go to Confession at least once a year (traditionally done during Lent), To receive the Eucharist at least once a year, during the Easter Season (known as the “Easter duty”), To observe the days of fasting and abstinence, To help to provide for the needs of the Church according to one’s abilities and station in life, To obey the marriage laws of the Church


46 books in the OT, 27 in the NT – the original canon of the Catholic Church

21 Councils and their decrees

  1. There’s no such thing as a “good” convert or “bad” convert. Being a convert, by itself, is ‘good’. We all can get better, though!

  2. Coming over at your request. I guess my next question based on your comment is on what authority do you take the teachings of the apostles and the content of what they taught except for what’s written down? And what apostolic teachings were written down prior to the Scriptures?

    So would you consider someone who leaves the Catholic church and becomes a Baptist because he didn’t esteem Mary as the mother of the church to be “fallen away”?

  3. Yes, Amen. Not too many Catholics believe in all of this. Especially the anti-abortion and being against homosexual “marriage”. If you can call it that.

What say you???
