CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 
PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF FAITH 

SECTION TWO

THE PROFESSION OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

THE CREED

THE SYMBOLS OF FAITH

33. What are the symbols of faith?

The  symbols  of  faith  are  composite  formulas,

also  called  “professions  of  faith”  or  “Creeds”,

with which the Church from her very beginning

has  set  forth  synthetically  and  handed  on  her

own  faith  in  a  language  that  is  normative  and

common to all the faithful.

34. What are the most ancient symbols

(professions) of faith?

The  most  ancient  symbols  of  faith  are  the

baptismal creeds. Because Baptism is conferred

“in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and

of  the  Holy Spirit”  (Matthew  28:19),  the  truths

of faith professed at Baptism are articulated in

reference to the three Persons of the Most Holy

Trinity.

35. What are the most important symbols of

the faith?

They  are  the  Apostles'  Creed  which  is  the

ancient  baptismal  symbol  of  the  Church  of

Rome and the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed

which  stems  from  the  first  two  ecumenical

Councils,  that  of  Nicea  (325  A.D.)  and  that  of

Constantinople  (381  A.D.)  and  which  even  to

this  day  are  common  to  all  the  great Churches

of the East and the West.

HOW TO OBTAIN THE JUBILEE INDULGENCE

For those able to make a pilgrimage to one of the Jubilee

churches in Rome, that is certainly an option. Otherwise,

there are eight churches within the Archdiocese of

Toronto with a Holy Door of Mercy.

Going through one of these Holy Doors is a spiritual

journey that shows, as the Holy Father said, "the deep

desire for true conversion.” In addition to passing through

a Holy Door, each pilgrim is to:

1. receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation,

2. receive the Holy Eucharist while reflecting on God's

great gift of mercy,

3. make a profession of faith (recite either the Apostles' or

the Nicene Creed), and

4. pray for the Holy Father and for his intentions (an Our

Father and a Hail Mary are recommended).

For those who are elderly, confined and the ill, Pope

Francis said that they may obtain the indulgence:

1. by "living with faith and joyful hope this moment of trial"

and

2. by receiving the Eucharist or by attending Mass and

community prayer, "even through the various means of

communication" (for instance, a Mass offered on

television).

For those in prison, they may obtain the indulgence in their

prison chapels.

Indulgences may be obtained for the dead by the carrying

out of these same acts by the Faithful with the intention of

offering the indulgence for someone who is deceased.

High School Reunion

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school

reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her

drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

My wife asked, 'Do you know her?'

'Yes,' I sighed, 'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she

took to drinking right after we

split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been

sober since.'

‘My, My!' says my wife, 'who would think a person could

go on celebrating that long?'

Memorial:  St.  Timothy  &  Titus,  BishopsFriday,
January  26
 —Timothy  (d.  97?): What  we  know  from
the New Testament of Timothy’s life makes it sound
like  that  of  a  modern  harried  bishop.  He  had  the
honor  of  being  a  fellow  apostle  with  Paul,  both
sharing  the  privilege  of  preaching  the  gospel  and
suffering for it.

Timothy  had  a  Greek  father  and  a  Jewish  mother
named  Eunice.  Being  the  product  of  a  “mixed”
marriage,  he  was  considered  illegitimate  by  the
Jews. It was his grandmother, Lois, who first became
Christian. Timothy was a convert of Paul around the
year 47 and later joined him in his apostolic work. He
was  with  Paul  at  the  founding  of  the  Church  in
Corinth. During the 15 years he worked with Paul, he
became one of his most faithful and trusted friends.
He  was  sent  on  difficult  missions  by  Paul—often  in
the face of great disturbance in local churches which
Paul had founded.

Timothy  was  with  Paul  in  Rome  during  the  latter’s
house arrest. At some period Timothy himself was in
prison  (Hebrews  13:23).  Paul  installed  him  as  his
representative at the Church of Ephesus.

Timothy  was  comparatively  young  for  the  work  he
was  doing.  (“Let  no  one  have  contempt  for  your
youth,”  Paul  writes  in  1  Timothy  4:12a.)  Several
references seem to indicate that he was timid. And
one  of  Paul’s  most  frequently  quoted  lines  was
addressed  to  him:  “Stop  drinking  only  water,  but
have a little wine for the sake of your stomach and
your frequent illnesses” (1 Timothy 5:23).

Titus  (d.  94?):  Titus  has  the  distinction  of  being  a
close  friend  and  disciple  of  Paul  as  well  as  a  fellow
missionary. He was Greek, apparently from Antioch.
Even though Titus was a Gentile, Paul would not let
him be forced to undergo circumcision at Jerusalem.
Titus  is  seen  as  a  peacemaker,  administrator,  great
friend.  Paul’s  second  letter  to  Corinth  affords  an
insight  into  the  depth  of  his  friendship  with  Titus,
and  the  great  fellowship  they  had  in  preaching  the
gospel: “When I went to Troas...I had no relief in my
spirit  because  I  did  not  find  my  brother Titus.  So  I
took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.... For
even  when  we  came  into  Macedonia,  our  flesh  had
no rest, but we were afflicted in every way—external

conflicts,  internal  fears.  But  God,  who  encourages
the  downcast,  encouraged  us  by  the  arrival  of
Titus...” (2 Corinthians 2:12a, 13; 7:5-6).

When Paul was having trouble with the community
at  Corinth,  Titus  was  the  bearer  of  Paul’s  severe
letter  and  was  successful  in  smoothing  things  out.
Paul  writes  he  was  strengthened  not  only  by  the
arrival of Titus but also “by the encouragement with
which he was encouraged in regard to you, as he told
us of your yearning, your lament, your zeal for me,
so  that  I  rejoiced  even  more....  And  his  heart  goes
out  to  you  all  the  more,  as  he  remembers  the
obedience of all of you, when you received him with
fear and trembling” (2 Corinthians 7:7a, 15).

The  Letter  to  Titus  addresses  him  as  the
administrator  of  the  Christian  community  on  the
island  of  Crete,  charged  with  organizing  it,
correcting abuses and appointing presbyter-bishops.

Comment: In Titus we get another glimpse of life in
the early Church: great zeal in the apostolate, great
communion  in  Christ,  great  friendship.  Yet  always
there  is  the  problem  of  human  nature  and  the
unglamorous details of daily life: the need for charity
and  patience  in  “quarrels  with  others,  fears  within
myself,”  as  Paul  says.  Through  it  all,  the  love  of
Christ  sustained  them.  At  the  end  of  the  Letter  to
Titus, Paul says that when the temporary substitute
comes, “hurry to me.”

Quote: “But when the kindness and generous love of
God  our  Savior  appeared,  not  because  of  any
righteous  deeds  we  had  done  but  because  of  his
mercy, he saved us through the bath of rebirth and
renewal  by  the  holy  Spirit,  whom  he  richly  poured
out on us through Jesus Christ our savior, so that we
might be justified by his grace and become heirs in
hope of eternal life. This saying is trustworthy” (Titus
3:4-8).

                                                                               !6

Notes on the Gospel
Luke very deliberately has Jesus start his work here.
His  public  life  will  be  a  single,  direct  journey  from
Nazareth  to  Jerusalem,  the  focal  point  of  the  story
told  by  Luke  in  his  gospel  and  in  Acts.  Unlike  the
other accounts, there will be no going back and forth
between Galilee and Jerusalem. It is in Jerusalem, the
city  of  peace,  where  Jesus  will  suffer  and  die.  It  is
here that he will rise to life and become our Lord and
Saviour. And it is from here too that his disciples will
go forth to every corner of the world with the Good
News.

So  it  is  that  on  this  first  day  he  goes  into  the
synagogue  “as  he  usually  did”  on  the  Sabbath  day.
(Jesus was an observant Jew. His attacks were never
on  the  Law  as  such  but  on  its  interpretation  and
abuses. He came not to destroy, or replace, the Law
but  to  fulfil  it.)  There  were  no  priests  in  the
synagogue,  which  was  simply  a  prayer  hall.  The
priests  were  in  the  Temple,  the  only  place  where
sacrifice was held. Every male Jew had a right to read
the Scriptures and to speak to the assembly.

From a reflection on the Gospel on the Living Space Sacred Space website

Commentary 2 – Memories help communities stay
healthy
The teaching of Jesus in the synagogue of Nazareth,
concerning  his  fulfillment  of  Old  Testament
prophecies, and Luke’s emphasis upon the traditions
of the community, remind us that the world’s great
religious  traditions  venerate  the  writings  and
teachings  that  put  them  in  touch  with  their  past. A
healthy community keeps alive the memory of what
inspired its origins.

Luke  tells  his  readers  that  the  gospel  he  is
introducing  is  a  faithful  expression  of  the  faith  that
has  been  handed  on  in  the  community  (a  common
theme of New Testament writers, see, 1 Cor 15:1-11
etc), handed on by ‘those who

from the outset were

eyewitnesses  and  ministers  of  the  word’;  his
investigations  confirm  as  ‘well  founded’  the

teachings they are familiar with.

The climax of today’s gospel, of course, is the claim
of  Jesus  that  he  brings  “fulfilment”  to  the  splendid
hopes of old Israel. The Christian Church is following
the  example  of  Jesus  himself,  as  it  treasures  the
traditions in which the faith of God’s people has been
expressed.

Question

If Jesus is God why did he pray?

Full Question

My brother recently converted to Islam, in part because he
no longer believes that Jesus was God. If he was, he argues,
why did he pray to himself all the time? Why especially in
Gethsemane when he was suffering so greatly?

Answer

Your brother fails to understand the doctrine of the Trinity.
God is one Being who is three Persons: the Father, the Son,
and  the  Holy  Spirit.  Because  these  are  three  distinct
persons, it is not unusual for one of the Persons to speak to
one  of  the  other  Persons.  In  such  a  case,  as  with  Christ
praying to the Father, he isn’t talking to himself because he
is talking to another person.

Question

How can we use Scripture to show the Holy Spirit proceeds
from the Father and the Son?

Full Question

In the December 1993 issue, This Rock ran a "Fathers Know
Best" column on the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Son as
well as the Father. How can we show this from Scripture?

Answer

One proof is that the Holy Spirit is referred to in Scripture
as both the Spirit of the Father (Mt 10:20, Rom 8:10-11, 2
Cor 1:21-22, Eph 3:14-16) and as the Spirit of the Son (Rom
8:9, Gal 4:6, Phil 1:19, 1 Pt 1:11). Statements saying that the
Spirit  is  "of"  the  other  two  Persons  of  the Trinity  indicate
that his Person is tightly bound up with and originates from
them (just as the Son is the Son "of" the Father).
A second proof is that the external relations of the Trinity
model their internal ones. In John 14:26 the Spirit is said to
proceed from the Father, but a chapter later, in 15:26, Jesus
states  that  he  will  send  the  Spirit  from  the  Father.  The
same  relation  is  reflected  in Acts  2:33,  where  Peter  states
that Jesus has received the Spirit from the Father and sends
him.

A philosophical explanation of this is found in the Council of
Florence,  which  stated  in  1439,  "Since  the  Father  has
through  generation  given  to  the  only-begotten  Son
everything that belongs to the Father, except being Father,
the Son has also eternally from the Father, from whom he
is  eternally  born,  that  the  Holy  Spirit  proceeds  from  the
Son" (Decree for the Greeks).

The Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son because
the  Father  has  given  all  things  to  the  Son,  including  the
procession of the Holy Spirit. For more information see the
Catechism of the Catholic Church 246-248, 264.
