Tradition and scripture are one 

We know of the bible, that it relies on the church, and must only be understood, on the foundation of her teaching (I timothy III verse XV, 1 timothy chapter 3 verse 15).


Tradition is that which is passed on, from one person to another- this involves ceremony, objects, such as the bible (since 382 A.D. (a few centuries after Jesus' death), when we have known the books it contains, thanks to the Church), and also the teaching, and action of Jesus Christ, which, as numerous as they were, could not be resigned to mere paper, but neither could be lost, for his divine words, which were all divine, could never fade away. 


Every organization relies on tradition, even those who condemn such practice, do so because others handed it down to them, and their speech itself was handed down to them. 


The bible is a written recording of Sacred tradition (the teachings of the Apostles, and the church), and is to be read in obedient faith, and as the church specifies.
