Catechesis: Justification

When fearful consciences are comforted by faith, and are convinced that sins have been blotted out by Christ’s death, and that God has been reconciled to us because of Christ’s sufferings, then, indeed, Christ’s suffering profits us. If the teaching about faith is left out, saying that works are useful by virtue of Christ’s passion is of no use at all.—Ap. V:261.
