March 02, 2016 – “To Be Deep in History is to Become Catholic”

Blessed John Henry Newman exclaims that the vitality of our faith depends, in part, on knowing about our Christian family’s history. Our Jewish ancestors were unique and distinguished themselves by particular beliefs. Jesus and the apostles were also Jews. The early Church saw themselves as the New Israel. Naturally, therefore, we might expect to see development of the faith in Christ and his church as it had developed for centuries, namely: through God’s personal presence and guidance, and accomplished through leaders chosen by him!
