The need for "C" and "E" Christians

We need to be “C” and “E” Christians. Not what we commonly understand as being those who attend church only at Christmas and Easter. Rather we need to see and uphold the “C”reed and the “E”ucharist as essential to the faith and the liturgy. The Creed is the summary of the faith we have by divine revelation, that God is One, the Holy Trinity, and Jesus is incarnate. He has come in the flesh for our salvation. The Eucharist is the fulfillment of God’s gift of salvation through Jesus’ sacrifice and death, Christ’s Body and Blood given and shed for us. The Creed sums up what we are given in God’s Word and the Eucharist sums up the divine life we are given here, the Bride’s foretaste of the feast to come. The faith is an everyday thing and this is our prayer in the liturgy. The Church in this world needs more “C” and “E” Christians.
