I belie’e in ‘un God,
yonder Father almighty,
maker o’hea’en an’ earth,
o’all thin’s visible an’ in’isible.
I belie’e in ‘un Lord Jesus Christ,
yonder Only Begotten Son o’God,
born o’thar Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial wi’ t’Father;
through him all thin’s were made.
Fer us men an’ fer our sal’ation
he came down from hea’en,
an’ by thar Holy Spirit was incarnate o’t’ Virgin Mary,
an’ became man.
Fer our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death an’ was buried,
an’ rose again on yonder third day
in accordance wi’ yonder Scriptures.
He ascended into hea’en
an’ be seated at ye right hand o’yonder Father.
He will come again in glory
t’ judge ye li’in’ an’ ye dead
an’ his kingdom will have no end.
I belie’e in ye Holy Spirit, thar Lord, t’gi’er o’life,
who proceeds from ye Father an’ ye Son,
who wi’ thar Father an’ yonder Son be adored an’ glorified,
who has spoken through t’prophets.
I belie’e in ‘un, holy, catholic an’ apostolic Church.
I confess ‘un baptism fer yonder forgi’eness o’sins
an’ I look forward t’ resurrection o’thar dead
an’ yonder life o’t’ world t’come. Amen.
How can ‘un God be three “persons” – Father, Son, an’ Holy Spirit?
How can Jesus be both God an’ human?
Wha’ be God’s kingdom like?
Think o’un club, team or organization t’which ye presently belong. Wha’ be ye purpose o’this group? Wha’ be ‘un requirement or belief o’yonder group that helps all its members work toward a common goal?
Read Isaiah 49:15-16. Wha’ be thar prophet attemptin’ t’ell us about God?
Read CCC #239. Wha’ does ye Church say about God in this passage?
Read John 13:3-17. Wha’ does this passage tell us about Jesus an’ therefore about God?
When do ye most feel yonder presence o’Jesus in yer life?
