THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE 

CHURCH

THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY

337. What is the plan of God regarding man and 

woman?

God who is love and who created man and woman 
for  love  has  called  them  to  love.  By  creating  man 
and  woman  he  called  them  to  an  intimate 
communion of life and of love in marriage: “So that 
they  are  no  longer  two,  but  one  flesh”  (Matt19:6). 
God  said  to  them  in  blessing  “Be  fruitful  and 
multiply” (Gn1:28).

338. For what ends has God instituted Matrimony?

The  marital  union  of  man  and  woman,  which  is 
founded and endowed with its own proper laws by 
the  Creator,  is  by  its  very  nature  ordered  to  the 
communion  and  good  of  the  couple  and  to  the 
generation  and  education  of  children.  According  to 
the  original  divine  plan  this  conjugal  union  is 
indissoluble,  as  Jesus  Christ  affirmed:  “What  God 
h a s  j o i n e d  t o g e t h e r,  l e t  n o  m a n  p u t 
asunder” (Mk0:9).

339. How does sin threaten marriage?

Because  of  original  sin,  which  caused  a  rupture  in 
the  God-given  communion  between  man  and 
woman,  the  union  of  marriage  is  very  often 
threatened by discord and infidelity. However, God 
in  his  infinite  mercy  gives  to  man  and  woman  the 
grace  to  bring  the  union  of  their  lives  into  accord 
with the original divine plan.

343. How is the sacrament of Matrimony celebrated?

Since  Matrimony  establishes  spouses  in  a  public 
state of life in the Church, its liturgical celebration is 
public, taking place in the presence of a priest (or of 
a  witness  authorized  by  the  Church)  and  other 
witnesses.

344. What is matrimonial consent?

Matrimonial  consent  is  given  when  a  man  and  a 
woman manifest the will to give themselves to each 
other  irrevocably  in  order  to  live  a  covenant  of 
faithful  and  fruitful  love.  Since  consent  constitutes 
Matrimony, it is indispensable and irreplaceable. For 
a valid marriage the consent must have as its object 
true  Matrimony,  and  be  a  human  act  which  is 
conscious and free and not determined by duress or 
coercion.

346. What are the effects of the sacrament of 

Matrimony?

The sacrament of Matrimony establishes a perpetual 
and  exclusive  bond  between  the  spouses.  God 
himself seals the consent of the spouses. Therefore, a 
marriage  which  is  ratified  and  consummated 

between  baptized 
p e r s o n s  c a n 

never be dissolved. 

Furthermore,  this  sacrament  bestows  upon  the 
spouses  the  grace  necessary  to  attain  holiness  in 
their  married  life  and  to  accept  responsibly  the  gift 
of children and provide for their education.

347. What sins are gravely opposed to the sacrament 

of Matrimony?

Adultery  and  polygamy  are  opposed  to  the 
sacrament of matrimony because they contradict the 
equal dignity of man and woman and the unity and 
exclusivity  of  married  love.  Other  sins  include  the 
deliberate  refusal  of  one’s  procreative  potential 
which deprives conjugal love of the gift of children 
and divorce which goes against the indissolubility of 
marriage.

348. When does the Church allow the physical 

separation of spouses?

The  Church  permits  the  physical  separation  of 
spouses  when  for  serious  reasons  their  living 
together  becomes  practically  impossible,  even 
though  there  may  be  hope  for  their  reconciliation. 
As  long  as  one’s  spouse  lives,  however,  one  is  not 
free to contract a new union, except if the marriage 
be null and be declared so by ecclesiastical authority.

349. What is the attitude of the Church toward those 

people who are divorced and then remarried?

The Church, since she is faithful to her Lord, cannot 
recognize  the  union  of  people  who  are  civilly 
divorced and remarried. “Whoever divorces his wife 
and  marries  another,  commits  adultery  against  her; 
and  if  she  divorces  her  husband  and  marries 
another,  she  commits  adultery”  (Mark  10:11-12). 
The Church manifests an attentive solicitude toward 
such  people  and  encourages  them  to  a  life  of  faith, 
prayer, works of charity and the Christian education 
of  their  children.  However,  they  cannot  receive 
sacramental  absolution,  take  Holy  Communion,  or 
exercise  certain  ecclesial  responsibilities  as  long  as 
their situation, which objectively contravenes God's 
law, persists.

350. Why is the Christian family called a domestic 

church?

The  Christian  family  is  called  the  domestic  church 
because  the  family  manifests  and  lives  out  the 
communal and familial nature of the Church as the 
family of God. Each family member, in accord with 
their  own  role,  exercises  the  baptismal  priesthood 
and  contributes  toward  making  the  family  a 
community  of  grace  and  of  prayer,  a  school  of 
human and Christian virtue and the place where the 
faith is first proclaimed to children.

Quotes

Always remember that you are absolutely 

unique. Just like everyone else.

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get 

out of it alive.

People who think they know everything are a 

great annoyance to those of us who do.

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as 

you please.

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her 

eyes.

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If 

you can fake that, you've got it made.

ARE YOU BEING CALLED?

pity when He saw a leper”

Are you moved with love and compassion

SAINTS OF THE WEEK

Optional  Memorial,  St  Peter  Damian,  Bishop, 
Doctor: 
Sat, Feb 21: 
Maybe because he was orphaned 
and  had  been  treated  shabbily  by  one  of  his 
brothers, Peter Damian was very good to the poor. 
It  was  the  ordinary  thing  for  him  to  have  a  poor 
person  or  two  with  him  at  table  and  he  liked  to 
minister  personally  to  their  needs.  Peter  escaped 
poverty and the neglect of his own brother when his 
other brother, who was archpriest of Ravenna, took 
him  under  his  wing.  His  brother  sent  him  to  good 
schools and Peter became a professor.

Already  in  those  days  Peter  was  very  strict  with 
himself.  He  wore  a  hair  shirt  under  his  clothes, 
fasted  rigorously  and  spent  many  hours  in  prayer. 
Soon,  he  decided  to  leave  his  teaching  and  give 
himself  completely  to  prayer  with  the  Benedictines 
of  the  reform  of  St.  Romuald  (June  19)  at  Fonte 
Avellana.  They  lived  two  monks  to  a  hermitage. 
Peter was so eager to pray and slept so little that he 
soon  suffered  from  severe  insomnia.  He  found  he 
had to use some prudence in taking care of himself. 
When he was not praying, he studied the Bible.

The  abbot  commanded  that  when  he  died  Peter 
should succeed him. Abbot Peter founded five other 
hermitages. He encouraged his brothers in a life of 
prayer  and  solitude  and  wanted  nothing  more  for 
himself.  The  Holy  See  periodically  called  on  him, 
however,  to  be  a  peacemaker  or  troubleshooter, 
between  two  abbeys  in  dispute  or  a  cleric  or 
government  official  in  some  disagreement  with 
Rome.

Finally,  Pope  Stephen  IX  made  Peter  the  cardinal-
bishop  of  Ostia.  He  worked  hard  to  wipe  out 
simony  (the  buying  of  church  offices),  and 
encouraged  his  priests  to  observe  celibacy  and 
urged even the diocesan clergy to live together and 
maintain scheduled prayer and religious observance. 
He  wished  to  restore  primitive  discipline  among 
religious  and  priests,  warning  against  needless 
travel,  violations  of  poverty  and  too  comfortable 
living.  He  even  wrote  to  the  bishop  of  Besancon, 
complaining  that  the  canons  there  sat  down  when 
they were singing the psalms in the Divine Office.

He  wrote  many  letters.  Some  170  are  extant.  We 
also  have  53  of  his  sermons  and  seven  lives,  or 
biographies,  that  he  wrote.  He  preferred  examples 
and  stories  rather  than  theory  in  his  writings.  The 
liturgical offices he wrote are evidence of his talent 
as a stylist in Latin.

He  asked  often  to  be  allowed  to  retire  as  cardinal-
bishop of Ostia, and finally Alexander II consented. 
Peter was happy to become once again just a monk, 
but  he  was  still  called  to  serve  as  a  papal  legate. 
When  returning  from  such  an  assignment  in 
Ravenna,  he  was  overcome  by  a  fever.  With  the 
monks  gathered  around  him  saying  the  Divine 
Office, he died on February 22, 1072.

In 1828 he was declared a Doctor of the Church.

Comment

: Peter was a reformer and if he were alive 

today  would  no  doubt  encourage  the  renewal 
started  by  Vatican  II.  He  would  also  applaud  the 
greater  emphasis  on  prayer  that  is  shown  by  the 
growing number of priests, religious and laypersons 
who  gather  regularly  for  prayer,  as  well  as  the 
special  houses  of  prayer  recently  established  by 
many religious communities.

Quote:

  “...Let  us  faithfully  transmit  to  posterity  the 

example of virtue which we have received from our 
forefathers” (St. Peter Damian).

FAST & ABSTINENCE

During Lent

Catholics fast, and abstain from meat on Ash 

Wednesday and Good Friday. 

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we abstain 

from meat on all the Fridays of the year (except 

on Solemnities) in commemoration of our 

Saviour’s death. 

The fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. 

The required fast on Ash Wednesday and Good 

Friday involves eating only one full meal on 

those days. One or two smaller meals may be 

taken on those days, but may not total one full 

meal.  The required fast does not allow eating 

anything between meals. 

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday

 

Abstinence on these days from meat does not 

intend the omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics who have completed their 

fourteenth year are bound by the law of 

abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of 

fast up to the beginning of their sixtieth year.

Our Lord

“Commentary 1 – Embracing those rejected is the 
first step towards healing them

“To touch the unclean made one unclean…. 
Ancient  Jews  concerned  themselves  with 
the  notion  of  pollution,  not  of  infection. 
They  made  little  distinction  between  a 
cultural  and  a  natural  source  of  the 
pollution, as long as they kept the source of 
the pollution at a distance. 

“In  a  culture  that  had  a  firm  mistrust  of 
change,  they  had  an  obligation  to  reject 
anything  that  changed  what  they  believed 
was  a  God-given  lifestyle.  When  Jesus 
touched  the  diseased  man,  he  ‘took’  the 
disease  upon  himself.  He  changed  the 
status of the ‘unclean’ to ‘clean’ and became 
polluted.  He  made  himself  rejected,  so  the 
leper could become accepted. And he did it 
willingly. In this sense, Mark foreshadowed 
Jesus'  ultimate  act  of  accepting  pollution 
from  nature  and  society.  He  took  death 
upon himself, so all might have eternal life 
with God.”

-From a reflection on the Gospel by Larry Broding

Words of Wisdom –St Clare of Assisi 

“God of mercy, You inspired St Clare with 
the  love  of  poverty.  By  the  help  of  her 
prayers, may we follow Christ in poverty of 
spirit and come to the joyful vision of Your 
glory  in  the  Kingdom  of  Heaven.  We  ask 
this  through  our  Lord  Jesus  Christ,  your 
Son, who lives and reigns with you and the 
Holy  Spirit,  one  God.  Forever  and  ever. 
Amen.”

Evangelii Gaudium 

“Our  commitment  [to  the  poor]  does  not 
consist  exclusively  in  activities  or 
programmes  of  promotion  and  assistance; 
what  the  Holy  Spirit  mobilises  is  not  an 
unruly  activism,  but  above  all  an 
attentiveness which considers the other [the 
poor]  in  a  certain  sense  as  one  with 
ourselves.”

Par 199 from Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis, Nov. 24, 2013

being  a  slave  or  losing  control.  But  just 
having  power  isn’t  enough  to  bring 
happiness.  Like  money,  power  is  better  at 
taking  away  unhappiness  than  bringing 
happiness. 

Like  fame,  power  simply  does  not  make 
people happy. We can observe that. For like 
rich  people  and  famous  people,  powerful 
people do self-destructive things more often 
than ordinary people do.

Power  alone  is  not  God-like,  because  God 
is  not  power  alone;  God  is  the  power  of 
goodness

. Power is open to good or evil uses. 

Power  cannot  be  our  true  good  because  it 
can sometimes be evil as well as good. How 
could good ever be evil?

Though  power  is  not  evil  in  itself,  it  can 
readily  be  used  for  evil.  In  fact,  it  tempts 
people  to  do  evil.  “All  power  tends  to 
corrupt,  and  absolute  power  corrupts 
absolutely.”  Dictators,  who  have  the  most 
power, are notoriously evil.

Power is like money: it’s a means to an end, 
since it can be used for either good or evil 
ends. But happiness is our end. To identify 
happiness with power is to confuse the end 
with the means.

WHAT DOES THE CHURCH TEACH?

Parish Meeting Room # 1 

With Fr Simon / Cost $22

Wednesday, Nov 19 @ 7:30 PM

Session 1

Why are we able to believe God?

Why do we seek God?

What does God show about himself when he sends 

his Son to us?

How can we tell what belongs to the true faith?

How can sacred scripture be “truth” if not 

everything in it is right?

Faith -- what is it?

What does my faith have to do with the Church?

Why do we believe in only one God?

What does it mean to say that God is love?

Wednesday, Dec 10 @ 7:30 PM

Session 2

Can someone accept the theory of evolution and still 

believe in the Creator?

If God is all-knowing and all-powerful, why does he 

not prevent evil?

What is heaven? What is hell?

From where does man get his soul?

What is sin?

What does it mean to say that Jesus is “the only-

begotten Son of God”?

Isn’t it improper to call Mary the “Mother” of God?

To Whom does Jesus promise “the kingdom of 

God”?

Did God will the death of his only Son?

Why are we too supposed to accept suffering in our 

lives and thus “take up our cross” and thereby follow 

Jesus?

What changed in the world as a result of the 

resurrection?

What will it be like when Christ judges us and the 

whole world?
