A junior high catechist writes that he does the following exchange with his students:
If you meet someone at an airport or wherever and said you were Roman Catholic, and they asked what you believe, what would you say? Suppose they were Muslim, Buddhist, or another Christian denomination.
I tell them the answer can be found in something we say at EVERY MASS!!!
Our Profession of Faith.
We then review it word for word, slowly. We discover it is the fabric of our Faith and with that said Faith is the gift from God to believe!
I challenge them to not just chime the words……we believe…da…da….da. and instead say it OUTLOUD and confirm our belief as Roman Catholics!
To that, I say, “Amen!”
