    • 567 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Within the Catholic faith, there are many myths and beliefs. Many of these myths are located in the Bible and consist of a greater being, also known as God, and his son, Jesus Christ. One myth that is well known among people within the Catholic Community is the creation of the 10 Commandments.

    • 976 Words
    • 4 Pages
