TFI #21

21. Be able to distinguish between Tradition vs. traditions

When we speak of the Sacred Tradition, we are speaking of Divine Revelation as it is continually handed on in a living way through the Church.

“traditions” = ecclesial traditions, e.g. the language (Latin or English) used during Mass.  While the Church may speak authoritatively on these, they do not have the same eternal importance as teachings which are considered to be divinely revealed.
