Some beliefs o' mine...

I believe that what is now known as the Roman Catholic Church is the Church founded by Jesus Christ.

I believe that this same Church, also known as the Body of Christ, has as its Vicar of Christ the Roman Catholic Pope.

I believe that the Pontiff's words on on faith and morals are infallibly correct.

I believe that salvation was, and remains, offered to the Jews.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah promised to the Jews.

I believe—and am humbly grateful for this—that this same Messiah came to free all people from the bondages of sin.

I believe that it is my obligation to pray to God our Father that all Jews—and all people—be led to accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, and the Salvation of all.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

Just in case anybody was interested.
