“Christianity, unlike any other religion in the world, begins with catastrophe and defeat. Sunshine religions and psychological inspirations collapse in calamity and wither in adversity. But the Life of the Founder of Christianity, having begun with the Cross, ends with the empty tomb and victory.” -Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“All Sacred Scripture is but one book, and that one book is Christ, because all divine Scripture speaks of Christ, and all divine Scripture is fulfilled in Christ” (Hugh of St. Victor, De arca Noe 2, 8: PL 176, 642).
“The Sacred Scriptures contain the Word of God and, because they are inspired, they are truly the Word of God” (DV 24).
God is the author of Sacred Scripture because he inspired its human authors; he acts in them and by means of them. He thus gives assurance that their writings teach without error his saving truth (cf DV 11).
Interpretation of the inspired Scripture must be attentive above all to what God wants to reveal through the sacred authors for our salvation. What comes from the Spirit is not fully “understood except by the Spirit’s action’ (cf. Origen, Hom. in Ex. 4, 5: PG 12, 320).
The Church accepts and venerates as inspired the 46 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New.
The four Gospels occupy a central place because Christ Jesus is their centre.
The unity of the two Testaments proceeds from the unity of God’s plan and his Revelation. the Old Testament prepares for the New and the New Testament fulfils the Old; the two shed light on each other; both are true Word of God.
"The Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures as she venerated the Body of the Lord” (DV 21): both nourish and govern the whole Christian life. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (⇒ Ps 119:105; cf. ⇒ Is 50:4).

IT’S ASH WEDNESDAY!
In the Bible a mark on the forehead is a symbol of a person’s ownership. By having their foreheads marked with the sign of a cross, this symbolizes that the person belongs to Jesus Christ, who died on a Cross.
This is in imitation of the spiritual mark or seal that is put on a Christian in baptism, when he is delivered from slavery to sin and the devil and made a slave of righteousness and Christ (Rom. 6:3-18).
Because ashes are a biblical symbol of mourning and penance. In Bible times the custom was to fast, wear sackcloth, sit in dust and ashes, and put dust and ashes on one’s head. While we no longer normally wear sackcloth or sit in dust and ashes, the customs of fasting and putting ashes on one’s forehead as a sign of mourning and penance have survived to this day. These are two of the key distinctives of Lent. In fact, Ash Wednesday is a day not only for putting ashes on one’s head, but also a day of fasting.
“Remember, man, that thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return, "which is modeled after God’s address to Adam (Genesis 3:19; cf. Job 34:15, Psalms 90:3, 104:29, Ecclesiastes 3:20).

A new scientific discovery by U.S. and Switzer…

A new scientific discovery by U.S. and Switzerland scientists has found that 90% of all current animal life on earth came into existence between 100k to 200k years ago, and that all human beings descend from one man and one woman at about the exact same time. In other words, genetic science has now confirmed there was a literal Adam and Eve and we are all descended from them between 100k to 200k years ago.
Now this does not mean the Genesis account in the Bible is to be taken literally. What it means is that the Catholic Church is (scientifically) right in requiring belief in a literal Adam and Eve even if we don’t subscribe to a literal interpretation of the creation accounts in Genesis 1 and 2.
Catholic Christians are free to interpret the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis as figurative if they so choose. However, they are not to be dismissed as myth. Rather, the themes and characters are to be taken as literal people, while the details of their lives may be written of in a legendary way to convey a certain moral or teaching. This is why Catholics are free to believe in scientific evolution, while at the same time required to believe in a literal Adam and Eve. The pair literally existed, and they literally fell from grace. But the details of their life and fall may be figuratively written in symbolic ways.

🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️🗳👶❤️ Roe v Wade has caused the legal deaths of over 60,853,941+ babies in the United States of America…
Roe created an “absolute right to abortion” under which “any abortion can be justified”
“Most Americans favor legal restrictions on abortion that go way beyond current law,” according to Lydia Saad, a senior editor for the Gallup polling company which has long tracked abortion opinion.
The way Americans self-identify has changed dramatically over the years. In the mid-1990s, “pro-life” was a distinct minority view. But in May 2009, for the first time, a significantly greater percentage of Americans self-identified as “pro-life” than “pro-choice.”
According to Gallup, only a small minority of Americans agree with Roe:
—61% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the fetal heartbeat has begun, which occurs in the first month of pregnancy.
—72% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the first 3 months of pregnancy.
—86% of Americans say abortion should be illegal after the first 6 months of pregnancy.
—Only 6% -17% of Americans believe abortion should be legal at any time, in all circumstances.
