The Catholic faith can be understood as an invitation that leads those who embrace it to an active life aligned with the ideals and example of Jesus Christ. Catholics are Christians. The Catholic faith goes beyond obedience to the “rules and statements” of the Catholic Church like the Ten Commandments and the Cathecism of The Catholic Church. The Catholic faith is dynamic rather than static as it causes one to learn, grow, change and give fruit in his or her daily life.
The Catholic faith seeks understanding based on the personal experiences of the person who believes, the scriptures, the community of believers, and also traditions passed from one generation to the other. The Catholic faith is also closely related to prayer as the believer seeks to connect and grow in his/her relationship with God.
