So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by the letter.2 Thess. 2:15
What the Catechism of the Catholic Church says about the Seven Sacraments…
- The Lamb’s Supper- The Mass as Heaven on Earth. Author- Scott Hahn.
- The Imitation of Christ- Thomas Kempis.
- Daily Meditations With the Holy Spirit- Author: Rev. Jude Winkler, OFM, CONV.
Tradition is rather understood as the fullness of divine truth proclaimed in the scriptures, preserved by the apostolic bishops, and expressed in the life of the Church through such things as the Divine Liturgy and the Sacraments (Eucharist, baptism, marriage, etc.), the Creed and other doctrinal definitions.
“Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, then, are bound closely together and communicate one with the other. For both of them, flowing out from the same divine well-spring, come together in some fashion to form one thing, and move towards the same goal.”40 Each of them makes present and fruitful in the Church the mystery of Christ, who promised to remain with his own “always, to the close of the age”.41
