Book Catholic Customs Traditions by Ronda Sola - AbeBooksSacred tradition , or holy tradition , is a theological term used in the major Christian traditions , primarily those claiming apostolic succession , such as the Catholic , Eastern Orthodox , Oriental Orthodox , Assyrian , and Anglican traditions, to refer to the foundation of the doctrinal and spiritual authority of Christianity and of the Bible. Christians believe that the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles were preserved in the scriptures as well as by word of mouth and were handed on. This perpetual handing on of the tradition is called the "Living Tradition"; it is believed to be the faithful and constant transmission of the teachings of the Apostles from one generation to the next. That "includes everything which contributes towards the sanctity of life and increase in faith of the People of God; and so the Church, in her teaching, life and worship [the Creeds, the Sacraments, the Magisterium, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass], perpetuates and hands on to all generations all that she herself is, all that she believes. According to Roman Catholic theology , two sources of revelation which constitute a single "Deposit of Faith", meaning that the entirety of divine revelation and the Deposit of Faith is transmitted to successive generations in scripture and sacred tradition through the teaching authority and interpretation of the Church's Magisterium which consists of the Church's bishops, in union with the Pope , typically proceeding synods and ecumenical councils.

I'm so glad that you stopped by! I would love for you to subscribe to my RSS Feed. You can also find me on Pinterest and Twitter. Thanks for visiting! Published by Our Sunday Visitor, it goes through the whole liturgical calendar, providing not only a summary of each month as far as dedication for the month, liturgical colors useful if you have a home altar and major saint feast days, but activities, recipes, craft projects, and stories and discussion starters, as well! There are some reproducible pages though not many. One of the things that I like best about this book is that it includes several secular holidays BUT it always approaches them from a Catholic viewpoint.
