In 2018, we begin a journey to catechize ourselves and our children. In this blog I answer five of the most frequently asked questions about that endeavor.
Yes, to satisfy his justice, God himself, out of mere mercy, reconciles us to himself and delivers us from sin and from the punishment for sin, by a Redeemer.
