The riches of tradition

…do our young people comprehend the rich tradition and foundational truths of the historic Christian faith? Have parents and church leaders done an adequate job in passing along the torch to the next generation? Sadly — and one might even say alarmingly, given the stakes — the answer is an overwhelming and resounding no, according to recent studies.

This statement coming from a Protestant sorce I posit that the parents neither know the “rich tradition and foundational truths of the historic Christian faith”…

…because all the separate assemblies of heretics call themselves Christians in preference to others, and think that theirs is the Catholic Church, it must be known that the true Catholic Church is that in which there is confession and repentance, which treats in a wholesome manner the sins and wounds to which the weakness of the flesh is liable.
Lactantius
