Quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church
III. Christ Jesus -- "Mediator and Fullness of All Revelation"
There will be no further Revelation
66 "The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. "Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.

Fear and Love
Love: Patient, Kind, willing to suffer without a desire to retaliate, turns the other cheek, humble.
Fear: Anger, hate, jealousy, arrogant, apathetic, anxiety.
I would like to repeat the words
with which I began my ministry as Bishop of Rome and Pastor of
the universal Church; "Do not be afraid! Open, indeed, open wide
the doors to Christ! Open your hearts, your lives, your doubts,
your difficulties, your joys and your affections to his saving
power, and let him enter your hearts. "Do not be afraid! Christ
knows what is in man. He alone knows it". I said this on 22
October 1978. I repeat it with the same conviction, with the
same force today, seeing the hope of the Church and of the world
shining in your eyes. Yes, let Christ govern your lives; serve
him with love. To serve Christ is freedom! --Pope John
