In his Apostolic Constitution FIDEI DEPOSITUM,
St. Pope John Paul II wrote that the Catechism of the Catholic Church “is offered
to all the faithful who wish to deepen their knowledge of the unfathomable
riches of salvation (cf. Jn 8:32).” Accordingly, learning the Catechism is
necessary for those who believe in God and want to achieve his salvific gift.
In other to help laypeople, especially young people in such learning, Father Francis Xavier Nguyen Hai Tinh, SJ has started a series of online video lectures on the Catechism of the Catholic Church titled under the title of Catechism of Catholic Church: Overview and Explanation. These online lectures offer easy-to-understand explanations in Vietnamese on subjects related to the deposit of faith. Each episode uses humor and animation to draw viewers’ attention.
The first part of this series includes 8 video
clips named as follows:
- Revelation: God’s Self-Communication
- Revelation: Communication of God’s Salvific Truths
- Faith: Meaning
- Faith: Several Characteristics
- Sacred Scriptures: Meanings, Inspiration, and Truth
- Sacred Scriptures: Canon and Interpretation
- Holy Tradition
Last year Fr. Tinh used to offer a series of online video lectures on theology designed for catechists, theology students, and anybody interested in theology.
