Greetings to you all! To more
fully understand what is being offered to us this
let us look at the Church’s teaching on Dogma
for a moment. For many of us the word “dogma” presents
an image of a cold statement of the faith, important
for theological discussion, but totally irrelevant
for living the Christian life. This simply is not
so. Dogma is alive and continually growing as we
come to a clearer understanding of what makes a better
Catholic Christian. If we are going to lead a Christian
life, we have to know who Jesus is for us and how
Christianity can exist in the modern world. Still,
remember, no one has ever been saved by Dogma. Christ
does the saving. Dogma is a time and culture sensitive
teaching and definition of the truth of the Lord. Read
Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's
and visit us.
Joseph Catholic Church is located in southern St. Petersburg,
Florida, on 22nd Avenue South, just east of the 22nd
