Teachers Notes

The first few topics in the Beliefs module explore the articles of the Apostles’ Creed not from a deeply theological or philosophical point of view but from the point of view of how each article of the Creed has been commonly understood in the Church and of its significance for us now. Useful links are embedded in a text that explains each statement of the Creed in simple non-theological language. These links are chiefly to accessible articles and papers which reflect on the meaning of the Creed for believers today. Later on, other aspects of the Catholic faith will be explored in further depth and topics added which reflect efforts to understand and clarify the faith claims and stance of the Church in the present time.

The method by which each topic is examined is less structured than the approach taken in other modules of RESource but attention is paid in each

  • to the fundamental contribution of Scripture to Catholic belief,
  • to the tradition and teaching of the Church through its two thousand year history
  • and to present day thought about the topic.

The Beliefs Module of RESource explores the Christian response to the great questions about life and its meaning which confront every human being.
