Understanding and Defending the Catholic Faith



Mar Bawai - Understanding and Defending the Catholic Faith

The fundamental principles of defending our Catholic faith begin by understanding what Catholic faith means to us. It means life worthy of our Lord's Gospel, not just living a life. It means rendering unto God what is suitable for Him, not just to be present. It means accountability to God's ways and commandments. We are made to God's Image, thus called to live a life animated by truth, holiness and happiness. We are to love, to self-give and to unconditionally forgive, all God's creation.

On Thursday 08/04/2011, Bishop Soro spoke about Christ our Lord establishing His Church, which is His visible Body on earth. And, elaborated about the head (foundation) upon whom Jesus established His Church, Saint Peter. He showed in detailed the necessity for all Catholics (Christians) to adhere to the teachings of the Apostles because they were handed this teaching and authority by Christ Himself. Bishop Soro emphasized our obligation as Catholic Christians to follow the Word of God as given to us in the Bible and Church Tradition, to worship Christ in the Eucharist, and to adore the Blessed Virgin Mary due to her role and relationship with her Son in the history of salvation.

We extend our gratitude to Bishop Mar Bawai Soro who gracefully delivered a message that will resonate with us for a long time. We are also very appreciative of the frequent and substantial pastoral and educational care offered to us by our Diocese in San Diego.
