Mmm interesting. I want to know more, especially the history. Let's ask father after.
Ate, why do we have to go to mass every sunday?
This is a way for us to truly connect with God and to practice our faith
The importance of mass is for us to accomplish so great a work, Christ is always present in His Church, especially in her liturgical celebrations. He is present in the sacrifice of the Mass, not only in the person of His minister, "the same now offering, through the ministry of priests, who formerly offered himself on the cross" , but especially under the Eucharistic species. (vatican.va, 1963)
Father, what's our (Catholic Church) relationship like with other religions?
The Church shows respect towards our differences with other religions.The Catholic Church rejects nothing of what is true and holy in these religions. It has a high regard for the manner of life and conduct, the precepts and doctrines which, although differing in many ways from its own teaching, nevertheless often reflect a ray of that truth which enlightens all men and women. people find the fullness of their religious life. (bc.edu, 1965)
Yes! It so cool to see the improvement to better practice our catholic faith especially that it applies to this modern time. I should ask Father next week more questions. I really find this topic interesting.
The Church today has improved thanks to the Second Vatican Council
Gaudium et Spes looked outward. The authors explain the text’s orientation to mission. They write, “It follows that since the Church is participating in, and a sacrament of, Christ’s mission of proclaiming, and effecting, the reign of God, the new creation, and eternal life, then the Church has a responsibility to all of humankind – a service to render in God’s name through the power of the Holy Spirit and in the manner of Jesus himself. (Winters, 2015)
Thanks to the popes who led the second vatican. Our church was able to progress. Thank you St. Pope John XXIII and St. Pope Paul VI. (vatican2voice.org, 2019)
