“Faith is more than assent of the mind. It’s you staking your whole life on the Word of God.”
In this little book Father Émile Brière sheds light on our understanding of the Apostles’ Creed—it comes alive as we hear it applied to daily life. His style is simple and chatty, geared towards young people preparing to enter into a deep commitment of living their faith as lay apostles.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Sprit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
