The “In Brief” Catechism On “I Believe In God” (CCC #228-231)

“Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God is one LORD…” (Mark 12:29) The supreme being must be unique, without equal. If God is not one, he is not God.

 

●  Faith in God leads us to turn to him alone as our first origin and our ultimate goal, and neither to prefer anything to him nor to substitute anything for him.

 

●  Even when he reveals himself, God remains a mystery beyond words: “If you understood him, it would not be God.” (St. Augustine)

 

●  The God of our faith has revealed himself as HE WHO IS; and he has made himself known as “abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” (Exodus 34:6) God’s very being is Truth and Love.
