I am new on this Forum, and I joined it in order to better understand my religion.
Welcome aboard :tiphat:
So, I have this one question which has bother me for 1 year now.
Am I correct that both eastern and roman catholics** have to follow "catechism of the catholic church" **
I was happy to see an E Catholic Catechism mentioned in this post #3 . :thumbsup:.
Re: The CCC, vs any other official Catechism from another Catholic rite, you're free to follow that Catechism, because there should be no contradictions to worry about.
In extension, the CCC it's a huge library of teaching, easy to read and navigate through by search function, and collect any particular teaching in progression of thought. And it's accessible to read online
Let's say you're interested in "mortal sin also called "grave sin"
You can search by each term
*]Mortal sin ccc.scborromeo.org.master.com/texis/master/search/?sufs=0&q=mortal+sin&xsubmit=Search&s=SS
*]Grave sin ccc.scborromeo.org.master.com/texis/master/search/?sufs=0&q=grave+sin&xsubmit=Search&s=SS
at the bottom of each paragraph, you have these options as well
» Enter the Catechism at this paragraph

» St. Charles Borromeo Home
Not meant as a sales pitch, just giving information
That said, while it's a universal Catechism, meaning for the Catholic Church worldwide, and it's massively thorough and easy to use, it's not meant to replace another official Catechism from another Catholic rite.
So as I understand it, don't worry. ;)
for example:- Coptic Orthodox Church do not recognize some(most) of the councils and creeds, but Coptic Catholic Church do recognize all the councils and creeds.
Furthermore, the only difference which exists between the eastern and roman is traditions, cultures, languages.
Is this 100% correct?
We Catholics believe in these Ecumenical Councils
