I BELIEVE AND TRUST

Every Sunday, we are invited to proclaim publicly the Apostles’ Creed. The Creed summarises what Christians believe and have believed since the time of Christ. (There is a lovely legend that suggests that each of the apostles provided one of the articles it contains.) When we stand to say the Creed, we unite with Christians past and present, and from all over the world, in proclaiming our common faith. Paragraph 197 in our Catechism states: ‘As on the day of our Baptism, when our whole life was entrusted to the "standard of teaching", let us embrace the Creed of our life-giving faith. To say the Credo with faith is to enter into communion with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and also with the whole Church which transmits the faith to us and in whose midst we believe. This Creed is the spiritual seal, our heart's meditation and an ever-present guardian; it is, unquestionably, the treasure of our soul.’
