In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains how and why the Catholic Church has the authority and ability in the name of Jesus and the Holy Spirit with God our Father to establish doctrine. This is the Church that Jesus himself founded.
‘Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven..‘ (Matthew. 16:17-19).
