“The magisterium, the Church’s teaching office, does not assert that in its proclamation of the faith it has exhausted every development, nuance, or application of the faith in the circumstances of our day. But the Church does define that the authoritative teachers of the faith will not lead us into error and away from Christ. No one else can rightfully make that claim. We turn to the teaching of the Church not for speculation, but for sure guidance on the way to eternal life with Christ.”
Donald Wuerl, New Evangelization: Passing on the Catholic Faith Today

“Why do we need to know more about our faith? Why would someone want to spend time learning more about what we believe? Why would you want to take time studying more about your Catholic faith? There are two good and basic reasons to do this. One is so that we can live it more fully; and, two, so that we can share it more effectively with others.”
Donald Wuerl, New Evangelization: Passing on the Catholic Faith Today

“We believe that the sacraments are, as it were, arms of the Savior himself by which he extends his action throughout place and time to give life, to bless, to renew, to heal, and to multiply the bread of life.”
Donald Wuerl, New Evangelization: Passing on the Catholic Faith Today
