there is also his bride the Church because He and her are one.
A Catechism for Adults, the official teaching of the Church (Source)
Question: Who is the saviour of all men?
Answer: Jesus Christ is who; by His death on the Cross has saved us from our sins.
Question: Who is Jesus Christ?
Answer: The Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, true God and true Man.
Question: Will Jesus come back?
Answer: Yes, on the Last Day, to judge the living and the dead.
In Other Words,
Sin entered the world by man’s disobedience. This act damaged the relationship between God and man, causing death to enter the world.
The effects of death not only damaged man but it damage all of God's creation the universe. Jesus says his death concurred death, and in His second coming it's not only man that will be restored but all of the universe will be restored. Jesus died for everything the Father created, He will restore a new heaven and earth.
You can clearly see the Catholic Church teaches the necessity of faith in Jesus Christ in the Catechism. I challenge you to go read the Catechism and find where the Church teaches we work and earn our salvation. In the Church, working in faith is simply cooperating with Jesus to our best, which by the way we understand is never good enough. It is doing whatever the Spirit leads us to do, whether it’s suffering for the love of neighbor, alms giving, prayer, it's taking up our cross and following Jesus as we are instructed to do.
Read Galatians 2:21, in context, it is obvious Paul is referring to the laws of the Old Testament, particularly referring to circumcision, Paul is not talking about the works of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. Fundamentalist, like all people, cannot and should not explain what they DO NOT UNDERSTAND, about Catholic Church doctrine. Just because you think you understand the precepts, devotions, practices and doctrines of the Church does not make you an authority on these subjects, you must get your facts right, before making these insane accusations. The Church has never taught a person can earn or merit for themselves the rights to heaven.
The Church has always taught for 2,000 years that Jesus is the way the truth and the life, and by his life, death and resurrection, through faith by his grace we his children have access to the throne of the Father. Jesus is our High Priest, in which we now have a participation of his royal priesthood of the New Jerusalem, the kingdom of God here on earth, which is the Catholic Church (CCC's 1544, 1545, 1590 and 2 Tim1:6, 1Tim 3:, Titus 1:5).
So let it be clear, the Catholic Church does not teach salvation is to be earned, apart from Christ’s passion and death, as though salvation is something we can grasp. This is the way the Catholic Church prescribes works and good deeds; Mt 25:40-45, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” Jesus identifies himself with all men, especially the poor and afflicted. Thus by serving others we serve Christ. By performing works of mercy we hope to find mercy (Jas 2:1-13). “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will do the works that I do; and greater works than I do, because I go to the Father (John 14:12).
