Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church
Read The Holy Father's letter, "Porta Fidei," Bishop Rhoades has asked us to recite the Creed DAILY . . . and pray the acts of Faith, Hope, and Love. I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
Amen. Council (n.) - legally convened assemblies of ecclesiastical dignitaries and theological experts for the purpose of discussion and regulating matters of church doctrine and discipline.

the Holy Catholic Church teaches because you have
revealed them who are eternal truth and wisdom, who
can neither deceive nor be deceived. In this faith I
