CUSTOMS AND PRACTICES FROM SACRED TRADITION

The purpose of this webpage is to give some examples of customs and practices which the Church inherited from Sacred Tradition and which She still practices today. The evidences for the existence of these ancient customs and practices come mostly from the writings of the Fathers, the Liturgy and Prayers of the early Church, the Decrees of Ecumenical Councils and other monuments of Sacred Tradition.
