lesson 2: - Atheists deny God’s

|Faith: Lesson 1
- This is the
first of 30 lessons based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church,
offered by the Catholic Information Service. Written by Peter Kreeft
this first lesson, on Faith, gives a basic understanding of the
relationship between faith and reason, faith and authority, and faith

Christ to make disciples of all nations. Following the lead of Pope
John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI by proposing the truth of the faith.
Ours is the basic work of evangelizing today’s culture by accepting the
challenge to make God visible in the human face of Jesus Christ. As
Father Michael J. McGivney did in the 19th century so we do in the 21st
century by “helping individuals to recognize and experience the love of
Christ, [and] awaken in them the desire to dwell in the house of the
Lord, embracing the life of the Church,” as Pope Benedict XVI said to
the Ontario bishops.
Over the years CIS has printed millions of booklets, and tens of
thousands of people have enrolled in our courses in an effort to preach
Jesus Christ to the nations.
