Mary Leads to the Mystery of Christ

Mary Leads to the Mystery of Christ

Thus, by her "yes" to God's unbelievable proposal, the Virgin Mary absolutely became the model of Christian faith for all men. She leads the whole human race to the mystery of Jesus Christ, the mystery that is proclaimed in its entirety in the Creed that the faithful confess at the celebration of the Eucharist.

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father;

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God, begotten, not made,

one in Being with the Father.

Through Him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit He was born of the Virgin Mary,

and became man.

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

He suffered, died, and was buried.

On the third day He rose again in fulfilment of the Scriptures;

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead,

and His Kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son He is worshipped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
