Hebrew Catholics - Beliefs

Beliefs

Hebrew Catholics subscribe to the doctrines of the Roman Catholic faith and are in full communion with the Bishop of Rome. One point of differentiation lies not in dogmatic beliefs but in liturgical practices. For example, their liturgical calendar might differ from Latin Catholics in their retention of certain Jewish holidays. Hebrew Catholics may celebrate Passover, Rosh Hashana, Shavuot, etc. and even wear traditional ritual wear like kippot, tallitot, tefillin, use mezuzot and keep many mitsvot (commandments) in the Torah as a sign of their heritage. Where these Jewish holidays and practices do not conflict with Catholic doctrine, they are kept for ethnic reasons, much as Irish Americans might celebrate Saint Patrick's Day.

The movement is not a sectarian group in the Roman Catholic Church, nor a schismatic movement outside it.

Famous quotes containing the word beliefs:

    We are born believing. A man bears beliefs as a tree bears apples.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The methodological advice to interpret in a way that optimizes agreement should not be conceived as resting on a charitable assumption about human intelligence that might turn out to be false. If we cannot find a way to interpret the utterances and other behaviour of a creature as revealing a set of beliefs largely consistent and true by our standards, we have no reason to count that creature as rational, as having beliefs, or as saying anything.
    Donald Davidson (b. 1917)

    It is not to be forgotten that what we call rational grounds for our beliefs are often extremely irrational attempts to justify our instincts.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
