How then does the Roman Catholic Church compare with the teachings of the Word of God? By participating in various time-honored traditions, such as making Jesse trees or putting on a Christmas play at home, Catholic families can engage more fruitfully in the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Either we live the liturgical year with its varying seasons of joy and sorrow, work and rest, or we follow the pattern of the world, writes.

    Catholic Traditions & Treasures New converts and cradle Catholics alike are often perplexed by the myriad of devotions, traditions, practices, and beliefs that the Catholic Church has accumulated over the past twenty centuries.

As a long-time Christian but new Catholic, I found Fr. O'Grady's book to be extremely liberal in its outlook. He presents a spectrum of possible beliefs and moral stances, but I felt as if he favors the most liberal end of the spectrum: on abortion, homosexual behavior, birth control, even apostolic succession, his views seem calibrated to the "lowest common /5(4).

The first Sacred Tradition that you will need to have is the list of the books of the New Testament. This delightful book explains the origin and nature of most of the common traditions of the Catholic Faith, as well as the source and meaning of many of the quaint and obscure ones.

From Forty Hours to First Fridays and from Holy Hours to Holy Days, you'll find in these pages an informative, delightful compendium of the Catholic way of life 5/5(3).

It is a must-have for anyone curious about the traditions, practices and beliefs of the Catholic Church. Each chapter is concise and filled with fascinating facts that captivate your attention and make you eager to read more.
