Conversations on the Catechism: “I Believe” – “We Believe”


"There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church, which is, of course, quite a different thing." – Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

A recent post by Jollyblogger got me thinking. He’s trying to start a League of Reformed Bloggers with an eventual Carnival of the Reformed. I’ve seen a few "merely" Christian and Protestant carnivals. I haven’t seen any Catholic carnivals. Does anyone know of one? Maybe someone within St. Blog’s could organize one (I wouldn’t have a clue where to start.).

Anyhow, I’d like get people to discuss the broader issues of Catholicism (as opposed to gluten-free wafers). In particular, I’d like to invite my Protestant readers to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To those ends, I’m going to write posts that highlight sections of the Catechism. This will be the first.

I invite all of my Christian readers to read Part One, Section One: "I Believe" – "We Believe" (paragraphs 26 through 184). What statements do you agree with? What parts would you disagree with? Why?

    Hey Funky,

    Maybe you could start one called the “Carnival of Trent,” or the “Carnival of the Counter-Reformation.” Then we could get together for the “Carnival of Worms.” 😉

    Cheers,
    David

    […] I’ve been meaning to make a regular practice of presenting parts of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and asking people to respond, but life interfered (in good ways, like marriage). My previous "Conversations" post is here. […]
