Day 39 The Communion of Saints

In this episode we conclude our study of the ninth article of faith “I believe in the Holy Catholic Church The Communion of Saints.” Today we focus particularly on the second part of the article “the communion of saints.” The Catechism explains that the gifts that justify men are the common possession of all members of the Church. (particularly the graces that come to us from the sacraments). But also the gratuitous graces (e.g. knowledge, prophecy, healing, etc.) are also the common possession of all the faithful. In addition to reading the Catechism we also turn our attention once again to the treatment St Thomas Aquinas gives to this article of Faith in his Compendium Theologiae.
