The entirety of the Catholic Church has been given the gift of the Sacred deposit of faith that is contained in Sacred Scripture and Tradition. (CCC) This Tradition is the foundation for the Catholic Church’s teaching authority.
The tradition of the Catholic Church began with Christ Himself. He commissioned the Apostles saying “Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. (Mt. 16:14-18). Christ gave His authority to Peter and the Apostles. The Church’s authority flows from this tradition and Christ’s commissioning of the apostles.
Preserving the Tradition of the Catholic Faith is to preserve the Church herself. The Church and her Tradition, and thus her authority, are under constant bombardment. The Neuman Forum aims to support the faithful in defending the faith and preserving the Tradition of the Catholic Church.
