I recently started my RCIA classes to begin the process of converting from atheism to Catholocism. I was raised Southern Baptist so my knowledge of the Church and what it believes is still rather limited, having grown up in a home in which the Catholic Church was often demonized.
Several weeks ago I heard the man in charge of my RCIA class (the Steward of Christian Initiation or something like that) mention something about this being around the time of the 8000th year of creation. That we had entered into the 8th day of creation or something very similar to that? I can’t remember this part for sure but I think he may have said something about time starting over with Christ or something like that.
I didn’t really have time after class to ask him about it and he’s been out of town since for the holidays. I’m very confused as to what he was talking about and haven’t been able to find anything online, mostly because I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated
