Catechism of the Catholic Church, that is
What, exactly, is the God of the Catholic church?
Well, Prologue, Chapter 1, Verse 1 of the CCC (written by the current Pope?) seems like a good stab at it. Off the mark, though, in my opinion.
It goes something like this:
"God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplilsh this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life."
-That's a lot of reference to men in there (I count 15).
-Why is God and He and Him and His, etc. not capitalized...
-"Infinitely perfect and blessed in himself" -I like that, lol.
-to know him (biblically?)
-the Church family, Mr. and Mrs. Church.
-I don't draw
-I didn't make anyone to share in my life.
