I’m about three-fourths of the way through my new translation of the doctrines of the Council of Trent. When completed, I plan to add some commentary throughout the text. The completed book should be a good resource for Catholics who are seeking to know Christ better by knowing what the Church teaches (a rarity today).
Sample text of the translation:
DECREE ON JUSTIFICATION
A description is introduced of the justification of the impious,
and its mode under the law of grace
By these words, a description of the justification of the impious is introduced, as being a translation from the state, in which a person is born a child of the first Adam, to the state of grace and of the adoption of the children of God, through the second Adam, Jesus Christ, our Savior. And certainly [this] translation, after the promulgation of the Gospel, is not able to occur without the washing of regeneration or its desire, just as it is written: “unless one has been reborn by water and the Holy Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.” [John 3:5]
Notice in the text above that not only baptized Christians (those who receive “the washing of regeneration”), but also those who receive a baptism of desire, are children of God by spiritual adoption. This infallible teaching is sometimes denied today by certain Catholic commentators who teach without first having learned.
Please take a look at this list of my books and booklets, and see if any topic interests you.
