Can you give any concrete examples of Tradition?


Can you please give me a couple examples of Apostolic Tradition that we are aware of today that have been passed down. Not quotes of Scripture that Tradition should be passed on but one or two Traditions that have been passed on. :tiphat:

Thank you for your time!



Dear C,

Sure! We know that Saints and Anne and Joachim are the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Tradition. The names are not listed in Scripture. We know of Saint Veronica, wiping the face of Jesus during His passion by Tradition as well.
