The Bible is the foundation of christian faith. Over the centuries, people have passed on their experiences of God by telling others and writing them down.
Christianity has many ways to express how God accompanies the daily life. The ways of celebrating Catholic feasts have formed Austrian culture and the lives of the faithful for centuries.
The basic values of Christianity are love for God and love for your neighbors. Christians are commanded by Jesus Christ to love their enemies and pray for them.
