Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults 2:1 – The Bible, God’s Word Part I by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

RCIA - artwork 2The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults are formed and received into full communion with the Catholic Church.  We continue our publication of the full text of Fr Guy de Gaynesford’s RCIA course, written for this purpose for use in parishes.

The second session is entitled The Bible: God’s Word – Part I –  which explores what the Church believes she is reading in the Scriptures, and how the Scriptures need to exist side by side with the Church’s teaching office (the bishops in union with the Holy Father).

The Foundations of the Catholic Faith 3 – The Catechism and Holy Scripture by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

Foundations of the Catholic Faith artwork for podcastCCC 11: ‘This Catechism aims at presenting an organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental contents of Catholic doctrine, as regards both faith and morals in the light of the 2nd Vatican Council and the whole of the Church’s Tradition. Its principal sources are the Sacred Scriptures, the Fathers of the Church, the liturgy and the Church’s Magisterium.’ The Scriptures are listed first in order of importance. Fr Guy further examines this often overlooked principle of Catholic teaching and shows how the Holy Scriptures are the prime source of all Catholic doctrine, contrary to what many may believe.
