I am pretty sure that the RCC still rejects the 5 Solas and views the Priest hearing Confession and administering the Eucharist in Mass as "non-optional" ... but I am willing to be shown a Catholic Catechism or Papal/Magestrum Dogma that contradicts my understanding.I know Catholic doctrine and since we're discussing JUSTIFICATION (is that what we're discussing? It IS the solution, I think)
then I'll have to disagree with the above.
The CC teaches that man is saved only by faith...
but then in the sanctification phase (which they call ongoing justification) works are necessary and man received grace from sacraments and also naturally from God.
Frankly, while I disagree with Rome on some fine points of Justification/Sanctification, that is not what prevented me from joining "The Church" when I seriously considered Catolicism. My axe to grind is really more in the area of "Mariology" and the elevation of Tradition to the point that it contradicts the Bible (obviously, in my personal view). The current move towards "co-redemptrix" is just a bridge too far for me.
