Theology

MY THEOLOGICAL PICTURE.

I find the most helpful image to have about theology is that of a HOUSE.

By baptism I enter the house and then I have in front of me several rooms.  These are the Rooms of our Catholic Tradition.   They are filled with the teachings of many different people over our 2000 years of  the Church’s spiritual journey.  In each room I can go back to look at the beginning, and follow the development through the 2000 years.

The Rooms which I choose are:

1. THE SCRIPTURE ROOM

Hebrew Scriputures, Chrstian Scriptures, Commenataries,

2. SACRAMENT ROOM

Jesus,   The Church, Mary,  Mass,  Seven Sacraments, Sacramentals.

3. THE WAY OF THE CHRISTIAN ROOM.

Love of God, Love of Neighbour, Prayer, Justice and Peace. Sexuality. Spiritual life.

4. ROOM FOR UNDERSTANDING GOD.

God.  Trinity.  Holy Spirit.
