“God our Savior desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth”. (Footnote #2 from 1Timothy).

For starters, this is a very important point. It tells me that as Catholics, we believe that the message of the Gospel is meant for all men.

Because these words are used to open up the Catechism, I see them as considered of primary importance to us.

It matters to me that this is the starting point of the catechism.

These corrections to the English text of the Catechism of the Catholic Church were made to harmonize it with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II on the same date. For details of the corrections, see the editio typica modifications to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Amen! And I can’t see it being any other way. We all know how Jesus felt about the self-satisfaction of the Pharisees and they had that attitude because they believed that they were the only ones who were following their man-made rules well enough.

I am special to God but if I thought that I was one of very few who were special to God, my ego could be insufferable.
