Man cannot live without love.... His life is senseless if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it.
John Paul II, Redemptor Hominis
If you were asked what immediately comes to mind when you hear the words "Catholic Church," would you answer "an intimate relationship with the God who loves me"?
If not, you would do well to read this engaging and thought-provoking book which explains why such a relationship is the reason for everything the Church does and teaches. Professor Edward Sri will show you how all the pieces of the Catholic faith, including the most baffling ones, fit together to make one beautiful mosaic of God's love for us and our own participation in that all-encompassing love.
Using the Catechism of the Catholic Church as his itinerary, Sri will walk you through all the important aspects of the Catholic Church what Catholics believe about God and the difference it should make in life. Along the way he addresses such often-heard questions as:
More than an intellectual enterprise, this work is also a deep spiritual reflection and a practical guide to living out our faith in Christ. It aims to form both the head and the heart, not only helping us to understand Jesus and his plan of salvation, but inspiring us to love God and our neighbor better."
Inhaltsangabe: Based on the acclaimed film series, Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained, this book leads readers through the big picture of the Catholic faith. Professor Sri helps you discover all the essential aspects of the Catholic faith - from creation, the cross and the Church, to the sacraments, social teaching, sexual ethics, purgatory, the papacy and prayer. The author shows how all the aspects of the faith fit together into the one overarching story of God s love for us and our participation in that love. He uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church for our itinerary, focusing on the four main pillars of the Catechism Creed, Sacraments, Moral Life and Prayer As we walk through core Catholic beliefs, he addresses common questions people have today, such as: Why do I need the Church - can t I just be spiritual on my own? Isn t one religion just as good as another? How is the death of a man 2,000 years ago, in a city far away, relevant for my life today? Why does the Church talk about morality so much? Can t I make up my own morality? Is it really our responsibility to care for the poor doesn t God help those who help themselves?Addresses common questions Protestants have about Mary, the Bible, Confession, the Papacy, the Mass. Much more than an intellectual enterprise, this work is also a deep spiritual reflection that draws upon the beauty of the Catholic tradition and the insights of the saints. It offers many practical applications to our daily lives, considering how the various aspects of the faith invite us to a deeper conversion to love God more and entrust ourselves to him. Thus, this book aims to form the head and the heart, helping us to not only understand Jesus and his plan of salvation, but inspires us to love him and our neighbor more. For this is what the faith is all about: Being a Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.
