CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF FAITH

I BELIEVE IN THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS

194. What is the meaning of the “communion of

saints”?

This  expression  indicates  first  of  all  the  common
sharing  of  all  the  members  of  the  Church  in  holy
things (sancta): the faith, the sacraments, especially
the  Eucharist,  the  charisms,  and  the  other  spiritual
gifts.  At  the  root  of  this  communion  is  love  which
“does not seek its own interests” (1 Corinthians 13:5)
but  leads  the  faithful  to  “hold  everything  in
common” (Acts 4:32), even to put one’s own material
goods at the service of the most poor.

195. What else does “the communion of saints”

mean?

This  expression  also  refers  to  the  communion
between  holy  persons  (sancti);  that  is,  between
those who by grace are united to the dead and risen
Christ.  Some  are  pilgrims  on  the  earth;  others,
having  passed  from  this  life,  are  undergoing
purification  and  are  helped  also  by  our  prayers.
Others already enjoy the glory of God and intercede
for us. All of these together form in Christ one family,
the Church, to the praise and glory of the Trinity.

MARY, MOTHER OF CHRIST, MOTHER OF THE

CHURCH

196. In what sense is the Blessed Virgin Mary the

Mother of the Church?

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of the Church
in the order of grace because she gave birth to Jesus,
the Son  of God,  the  Head  of  the  body  which  is  the
Church. When he was dying on the cross Jesus gave
his  mother  to  his  disciple  with  the  words,  “Behold
your mother” (John 19:27).

197. How does the Virgin Mary help the Church?

After the Ascension of her Son, the Virgin Mary aided
the beginnings of the Church with her prayers. Even
after  her Assumption  into  heaven,  she  continues  to
intercede for her children, to be a model of faith and
charity  for  all,  and  to  exercise  over  them  a  salutary
influence deriving from the superabundant merits of
Christ.  The  faithful  see  in  Mary  an  image  and  an
anticipation of the resurrection that awaits them and
they  invoke  her  as  advocate,  helper,  benefactress
and mediatrix.

198. What kind of devotion is directed to the holy

Virgin?

It  is  a  singular  kind  of  devotion  which  differs
essentially  from  the  cult  of  adoration  given  only  to
the  Most  Holy  Trinity.  This  special  veneration
directed  to  Mary  finds  particular  expression  in  the
liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and
in Marian prayers such as the holy Rosary which is a
compendium of the whole Gospel.

199. In what way is the Blessed Virgin Mary the

eschatological icon of the Church?

Looking  upon  Mary,  who  is  completely  holy  and
already  glorified  in  body  and  soul,  the  Church
contemplates in her what she herself is called to be
on  earth  and  what  she  will  be  in  the  homeland  of
heaven.

Solemnity—The  Nativity  Of  St  John  The  Baptist:
Friday,  June  24:  
Saint  John  the  Baptist  was  a
contemporary  of  Christ  who  was  known  for
evangelization and his baptizing of Jesus Christ.

John  the  Baptist  was  born  to  Zachariah  and
Elizabeth,  who  was  otherwise  too  old  to  bear
children. According  to  scriptures,  the Angel Gabriel
visited  Elizabeth  and  Zachariah  to  tell  them  they
would  have  a  son  and  that  they  should  name  him
John.  Zachariah  was  skeptical  and  for  this  he  was
rendered  mute  until  the  time  his  son  was  born  and
named John, in fulfillment of God's will.

When  Elizabeth  was  pregnant  with  John,  she  was
visited  by  Mary,  and  John  leapt  in  her  womb. This
revealed to Elizabeth that the child Mary carried was
to be the Son of God.

John  began  public  ministry  around  30 AD,  and  was
known  for  attracting  large  crowds  across  the
province  of  Judaea  and  around  the  Jordan  River.
When  Jesus  came  to  him  to  be  baptized,  John
recognized  him  and  said,  "It  is  I  who  need  baptism
from you."

Jesus told John to baptize Him anyway, which he did,
whereupon  the  heavens  opened,  and  the  Spirit  of
God  was  seen  like  a  dove. The  voice  of God  spoke,
saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well
pleased."

John instructed his followers to turn to Christ, calling
Him  the  "Lamb  of  God"  and  these  people  were
among the first Christians.

Following  his  baptism  of  Christ,  John's  popularity
grew  so  much  that  he  alarmed  King  Herod.  Herod
ordered him arrested and imprisoned.

John  spoke  with  Herod  on  several  occasions  and
condemned  his  marriage  to  his  half-brother's  wife.
This  condemnation  would  be  his  downfall  as  King
Herod  promised  to  grant  a  wish  to  his  daughter.  In
revenge for John the Baptist's condemnation of her
mother's  scandalous  marriage  to  Herod,  she  asked

for John's head. King Herod reluctantly obliged. John
the Baptist died sometime between 33 and 36 AD.

John  the  Baptist's  feast  day  is  June  24,  and  the
anniversary  of  his  death  is  August  29  and  is
sometimes celebrated with a second feast. John the
Baptist  is  the  patron  saint  of  Jordan,  Puerto  Rico,
French Canada and many other places.

Comment:  John  challenges  us  Christians  to  the
fundamental  attitude  of  Christianity—total
dependence on the Father, in Christ. Except for the
Mother of God, no one had a higher function in the
unfolding of salvation. Yet the least in the kingdom,
Jesus said, is greater than he, for the pure gift that
the  Father  gives. The  attractiveness  as  well  as  the
austerity  of  John,  his  fierce  courage  in  denouncing
evil—all stem from his fundamental and total placing
of his life within the will of God.

Quote:  "And  this  is  not  something  which  was  only
true  once,  long  ago  in  the  past.  It  is  always  true,
because  the  repentance  which  he  preached  always
remains  the  way  into  the  kingdom  which  he
announced. He is not a figure that we can forget now
that  Jesus,  the  true  light,  has  appeared.  John  is
always  relevant  because  he  calls  for  a  preparation
which all men need to make. Hence every year there
are  four  weeks  in  the  life  of  the Church  in  which  it
listens  to  the  voice  of  the  Baptist.  These  are  the
weeks of Advent" (A New Catechism).

The 1st Reading: Zech 12:10-11; 13:1; Ps 62:2-6.

8-9 r. 2; Gal 3:26-29; Luke 9:18-24

In  this  Sunday's  readings  we  hear  the  voice  of

the  Prophet  Zechariah  as  he  delivers  difficult

oracles  from  God.  The  people  have  returned

from exile. Now back in Jerusalem, they face the

arduous  work  of  rebuilding  the  Temple.

Zechariah  acknowledges  their  hardships  and

foresees more obstacles.

But  their  grief  has  a  purpose.  It  is  a  remedy,  a

penance  to  heal  them  --  "a  fountain  to  purify

from sin and uncleanness."

Thus  purified,  the  people  will  be  ready  to

receive the Messiah and usher in a new creation.

God  promises  to  "pour  out  on  the  house  of

David  and  on  the  inhabitants  of  Jerusalem  a

spirit  of  grace  and  petition."  So  that  no  one

should  mistake  the  identity  of  the  Messiah

when  He  comes,  God  says  through  Zechariah:

"they shall look on him whom they have thrust

through,  and  they  shall  mourn  for  him  as  one

mourns  for  an  only  son  …  a  first-born."  That

prophecy  could  be  fulfilled  in  no  other  than

Jesus, the Word made Flesh, the Only-Begotten

Son of God, the Crucified.

The  day  of  the  Messiah  indeed  came,  with  an

outpouring  of  the  Spirit.  Yet  it  was  a  saving

event not only for Jerusalem, but for all people.

Both Jews and Gentiles could become "children

of  God,"  in  St.  Paul's  stunning  phrase.  Now,

“There is neither Jew nor Greek … slave nor free

… male and female …   if you belong to Christ,

then  you  are  Abraham's  descendant,  heirs

according to the promise.”

In  light  of  these  readings,  Sunday's  Gospel  is

poignant.  Jesus  asks  his  closest  friends,  "  who

do  you  say  that  I  am?"  Peter  replies,  "The

Messiah of God." Jesus then reveals to them, as

Zechariah  had  foretold,  that  the  Messiah  must

be  "thrust  through"  and  killed  and  mourned

before  the  Spirit  would  come  forth  on

Pentecost.

The day has indeed come. Yet still we long for its

fullness,  and  so  we  pray  to  God  in  the  Psalm:

"for you I long! For you my body yearns; for you

my soul thirsts, Like a land parched, lifeless, and

without water."

“…Whoever Looses Their Life For My Sake Will Save It

Question
May  a  person  who  is  divorced  but  not  remarried
receive Communion?
Answer
While Church teaching recognizes the seriousness of
divorce, it understands that:

1.  There  are  situations  in  which  civil
divorce may be necessary: "If civil divorce
remains  the  only  possible  way  of
ensuring  certain  legal  rights,  the  care  of
the  children,  or  the  protection  of
inheritance, it can be tolerated and does
not  constitute  a  moral  offense"  (CCC
2383), and

2. Divorce may occur due to no fault of an innocent
spouse:

It can happen that one of the spouses is
the innocent victim of a divorce decreed
by  civil  law;  this  spouse  therefore  has
not contravened the moral law. There is
a  considerable  difference  between  a
spouse  who  has  sincerely  tried  to  be
faithful  to  the  sacrament  of  marriage
and is unjustly abandoned, and one who
through  his  own  grave  fault  destroys  a
canonically valid marriage. (CCC 2386)

In  such  cases,  divorce  is  not  sinful  for  that  person
and he or she may continue to receive Communion.
However,  in  other  cases—as  with  all  serious  sin—a
divorced  person  should  go  to  confession
immediately,  prior  to  receiving  Communion.  If  a
divorced  person  later  remarries  invalidly  he  or  she
would  then  be  prohibited  from  receiving
Communion as long as that situation persists or until
he or she has gone to confession and committed to
living chastely. The Catechism explains:

Today  there  are  numerous  Catholics  in
many  countries  who  have  recourse  to
civil  divorce  and  contract  new  civil
unions.  In  fidelity  to  the  words  of Jesus
Christ—"Whoever  divorces  his  wife  and
marries  another,  commits  adultery
against  her;  and  if  she  divorces  her
husband  and  marries  another,  she
commits  adultery"—the  Church
maintains  that  a  new  union  cannot  be
recognized as valid, if the first marriage
