Catholic Word of the Day: SIMILITUDE , 10-14-11 ^ | 10-14-11 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 10/14/2011 11:46:34 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):



Some likeness or resemblance of one to another. Similitudes are the basis of all teaching of revealed truth. We come to know, more or less, of the meaning of the mysteries of faith by means of comparison with things that are known by reason. Every truth of revelation is communicated to the world as a similitude, e.g., grace as life, sacraments as signs, the Church as a body, heaven as a kingdom. (Etym. Latin similitudo, likeness.)
