Questions on Dispensationalism, Old Testament, etc


Hello all,

I recently was asked these questions from a relative after explaining the Church’s stance on contraception:

“What is the Catholic Church’s view of the Torah and its place in today’s world? Do they believe in a new and old covenant church? Do they believe in dispensations? If so, when did they adopt them?”

I know we do not believe in dispensationalism, but could someone please elaborate for me? I’m just confused on this topic as a whole, and I would like to explain as accurately and completely as possible the Roman Catholic Church’s answer to these questions.

Thank you!
