EWTN presents the teachings of the Catholic Church in an easy-to-use format. Catholic topics presented here are structured in a hierarchy of learning, ranging from simple definitions to the teachings that are more detailed and involved.

Many people think that Christmas is the most important day in the Catholic liturgical calendar, but from the earliest days of the Church, Easter has been considered the central Christian feast. As Saint Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians"If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain."Without Easter—without the Resurrection of Christ—there would be.

Roman Catholicism - Roman Catholicism - Beliefs and practices: The idea of faith shared by all Christian churches is rooted in the New Testament. But the New Testament idea of faith is not simple; indeed, it possesses a breadth of meaning that has led to varying understandings, even within a single Christian communion.

Most modern interpreters of the New Testament would agree to a description. Dispensing with that most important of distinctions is the very basis for Mr. Martin's success in persuading readers of his book that the Church's current teaching is wrong. The chief teachings of the Catholic church are: God's objective existence; God's interest in individual human beings, who can enter into relations with God (through prayer); the Trinity ; the divinity of Jesus; the immortality of the soul of each human being, each one being accountable at death for his or her actions in life, with the award of heaven or hell ; the resurrection of the dead; the historicity of the.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines purgatory as a “purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven,” which is experienced by those “who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified” (CCC ).

It notes that “this final purification of the elect is entirely different from the punishment of the damned” (CCC ). The Catholic Church, in an attempt to help Catholics do at least a minimum during Lent, asks all Catholics to fast and abstain from meat on certain days.

Fasting means to limit food to one full meal a day with the possibility of two smaller meals (not adding up to a full meal) as needed.
