WHAT IS THE CREED?
Help us to understand why we pray The
Creed, where it comes from and to realize
the importance of professing it with love.
In Mass we pray the Nicene Creed, which was written during two of the great councils of the Church, Nicacea in 325 A.D. and Constantinople in 381 A.D. It’s the Church’s way of briefly summarizing the most important truths of our faith.
“THE CREED” is recited after the Homily. We stand and profess our faith.
When we say “Amen” at the end of the Creed, we are saying that we believe in God.
Why Do Catholics Pray the Creed? by Life Teen
“The Creed” is a profession of faith that is a personal act. It is a personal statement of what you believe. It’s like the ‘About Me’ section on Face book or a blog where you put what you like to do, what movies you like to watch, your favorite quotes and music, things that you love and enjoy. It describes you. The Creed gives us a set of beliefs that build the foundation of the faith Christ passed on to the apostles.
Watch and recite “The Creed!”
Watch this for a deeper understanding!
