CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC 

CHURCH 

PART ONE—THE PROFESSION OF 

FAITH 

“I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST,

THE ONLY SON OF GOD.”

“Jesus Christ was conceived by the power

of the Holy Spirit, and was born of the Virgin

Mary”

131. What is the saving meaning of the

Resurrection?

The  Resurrection  is  the  climax  of  the

Incarnation.  It  confirms  the  divinity  of

Christ and all the things which he did and

taught.  It  fulfills  all  the  divine  promises

made for us. Furthermore the risen Christ,

the  conqueror  of  sin  and  death,  is  the

principle  of  our  justification  and  our

Resurrection.  It  procures  for  us  now  the

grace of filial adoption which is a real share

in the life of the only begotten Son. At the

end of time he will raise up our bodies.

“Jesus  Ascended  into

Heaven  and  Is Seated

at  the  Right  Hand  of

G o d  t h e  F a t h e r

Almighty”

132. What does the Ascension mean?

After  forty  days  during  which  Jesus

showed  himself  to  the  apostles  with

ordinary  human  features  which  veiled  his

glory  as  the  Risen  One,  Christ  ascended

into  heaven  and  was  seated  at  the  right

hand of the Father. He is the Lord who now

in  his  humanity  reigns  in  the  everlasting

glory  of  the  Son  of  God  and  constantly

intercedes  for  us  before  the  Father.  He

sends us his Spirit and he gives us the hope

of  one  day  reaching  the  place  he  has

prepared for us.

“From thence He shall

come  to  judge  the

living and the dead”

133. How does the Lord Jesus now reign?

As the Lord of the cosmos and of history,

the Head of his Church, the glorified Christ

mysteriously  remains  on  earth  where  his

kingdom is already present in seed and in

its beginning in the Church. One day he will

return  in  glory  but  we  do  not  know  the

time.  Because  of  this  we  live  in  watchful

a n t i c i p a t i o n ,  p r a y i n g  “ C o m e ,

Lord” (Revelation 22:20).

134. How will the coming of the Lord in

glory happen?

After  the  final  cosmic  upheaval  of  this

passing world the glorious coming of Christ

will  take  place.  Then  will  come  the

definitive  triumph  of  God  in  the  parousia

and the Last Judgment. Thus the Kingdom

of God will be realized.

135. How will Christ judge the living and

the dead?

Christ  will  judge  with  the  power  he  has

gained as the Redeemer of the world who

came to bring salvation to all. The secrets

of hearts will be brought to light as well as

the  conduct  of  each  one  toward God  and

toward  his  neighbor.  Everyone,  according

to  how  he  has  lived,  will  either  be  filled

with  life  or  damned  for  eternity.  In  this

way,  “the  fullness  of  Christ”  (Ephesians

4:13) will come about in which “God will be

all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:28).

“Dad,” says a Spanish boy to his father, “when I’m

grown up I want to be just like you.” “That’s nice,

son. Why?” “So I can have a son like me!”

The main difference between Austrians and the

Germans is that Germans would like to understand

Austrians but can’t, and Austrians understand

Germans but would rather not.

The Macedonians on the (corrupt) Greeks:

A Greek motorist parks his car outside the

OK,” says the motorist. “It’s fitted with an alarm.”

Optional  Memorial—St  Bernardine  of  Siena,

Priest—Friday, May 20: Most of the saints suffer

great  personal  opposition,  even  persecution.

Bernardine,  by  contrast,  seems  more  like  a

human  dynamo  who  simply  took  on  the  needs

of the world.
He  was  the  greatest  preacher  of  his  time,

journeying  across  Italy,  calming  strife-torn

cities,  attacking  the  paganism  he  found

rampant, attracting crowds of 30,000, following

St.  Francis  of  Assisi’s  admonition  to  preach

about “vice and virtue, punishment and glory.”
Compared with St. Paul by the pope, Bernardine

had  a  keen  intuition  of  the  needs  of  the  time,

along with solid holiness and boundless energy

and joy. He accomplished all this despite having

a  very  weak  and  hoarse  voice,  miraculously

improved later because of his devotion to Mary.
When he was 20, the plague was at its height in

his hometown, Siena. Sometimes as many as 20

people  died  in  one  day  at  the  hospital.

Bernardine offered to run the hospital and, with

the  help  of  other  young  men,  nursed  patients

there  for  four  months.  He  escaped  the  plague

but was so exhausted that a fever confined him

for  several  months.  He  spent  another  year

caring for a beloved aunt (her parents had died

when he was a child) and at her death began to

fast and pray to know God’s will for him.
At 22, he entered the Franciscan Order and was

ordained  two  years  later.  For  almost  a  dozen

years  he  lived  in  solitude  and  prayer,  but  his

gifts ultimately caused him to be sent to preach.

He  always  traveled  on  foot,  sometimes

speaking for hours in one place, then doing the

same in another town.
Especially  known  for  his  devotion  to  the  Holy

Name  of Jesus,  Bernardine  devised  a  symbol—

IHS, the first three letters of the name of Jesus

in Greek, in Gothic letters on a blazing sun. This

was to displace the superstitious symbols of the

day,  as  well  as  the  insignia  of  factions  (for

example,  Guelphs  and  Ghibellines).  The

devotion  spread,  and  the  symbol  began  to

appear in churches, homes and public buildings.

Opposition  arose  from  those  who  thought  it  a

dangerous  innovation.  Three  attempts  were

made to have the pope take action against him,

but  Bernardine’s  holiness,  orthodoxy  and

intelligence were evidence of his faithfulness.
General of a branch of the Franciscan Order, the

Friars  of  the  Strict  Observance,  he  strongly

emphasized  scholarship  and  further  study  of

theology and canon law. When he started there

were 300 friars in the community; when he died

there were 4,000. He returned to preaching the

last two years of his life, dying while traveling.
Story:  At  Bologna,  Bernardine  preached

mightily  against  the  evils  of  gambling.  As  was

the  custom,  a  huge  bonfire  was  made  in  the

public  square,  to  be  a  holocaust  consuming  all

the instruments of vice—playing cards, dice and

the  like.  A  manufacturer  of  playing  cards

complained  that  Bernardine  was  taking  away

his livelihood The saint told him to start making

the symbol IHS, and he made more money than

ever before.
Comment: Another dynamic saint once said, “...I

will  not  be  a  burden,  for  I  want  not  what  is

yours, but you.... I will most gladly spend and be

utterly  spent  for  your  sakes”  (2  Corinthians

12:14).  There  is  danger  that  we  see  only  the

whirlwind of activity in the Bernardines of faith

—taking  care  of  the  sick,  preaching,  studying,

administering,  always  driving—and  forget  the

source  of  their  energy. We  should  not  say  that

Bernardine  could  have  been  a  great

contemplative if he had had the chance. He had

the chance, every day, and he took it.

                                                                               !6

The  1st  Reading:  Acts  2:1-11;  Psalm

104:1,24,29-31,34;  1  Corinthians  12:3-7,12-13;

John 20:19-23

The  giving  of  the  Spirit  to  the  new  people  of

God  crowns  the  mighty  acts  of  the  Father  in

salvation history.

The Jewish  feast  of  Pentecost  called  all  devout

Jews  to  Jerusalem  to  celebrate  their  birth  as

God's chosen people, in the covenant Law given

to  Moses  at  Sinai  (see  Leviticus  23:15-21;

Deuteronomy 16:9-11).

In  today's  First  Reading  the  mysteries

prefigured  in  that  feast  are  fulfilled  in  the

pouring  out  of  the  Spirit  on  Mary  and  the

Apostles (see Acts 1:14).

The Spirit seals the new law and new covenant

brought  by  Jesus,  written  not  on  stone  tablets

but  on  the  hearts  of  believers,  as  the  prophets

promised (see 2 Corinthians 3:2-8; Romans 8:2).

The Spirit is revealed as the life-giving breath of

the  Father,  the Wisdom  by  which  He  made  all

things,  as  we  sing  in  today's  Psalm.  In  the

beginning,  the  Spirit  came  as  a  "mighty  wind"

sweeping over the face of the earth (see Genesis

1:2). And in the new creation of Pentecost, the

Spirit again comes as "a strong, driving wind" to

renew the face of the earth.

As God fashioned the first man out of dust and

filled  him  with  His  Spirit  (see  Genesis  2:7),  in

today's Gospel we see the New Adam become a

life-giving  Spirit,  breathing  new  life  into  the

Apostles (see 1 Corinthians 15:45,47).

Like  a  river  of  living  water,  for  all  ages  He  will

pour  out  His Spirit  on  His  body,  the Church,  as

we  hear  in  today's  Epistle  (see  also  John

7:37-39).

We receive that Spirit in the sacraments, being

made  a  "new  creation"  in  Baptism  (see  2

Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15). Drinking of the

one  Spirit  in  the  Eucharist  (see  1  Corinthians

10:4), we are the first fruits of a new humanity -

fashioned  from  out  of  every  nation  under

heaven,  with  no  distinctions  of  wealth  or

language or race, a people born of the Spirit.

“Divided Tongues, As Of Fire, Appeared Among Them, And A

Tongue Rested On Each Of Them”

Apostles

YOUTH MINISTRY

Question

Why  is  living  together  wrong  if  we're

committed to chastity?

Full Question

My  fiancé  and  I  want  to  live  together  for  the

next  year  to  save  money.  My  mom  is  upset

about this and says this is wrong. But if we both

honour  our  commitment  to  live  chastely  until

marriage, why would it be wrong?

Answer

Even  if  you  and  your  fiancé  don’t  have  sexual

relations  for  the  entire  time  of  your  living

together,  your  actions  give  scandal.  The

Catechism warns:

The person who gives scandal becomes

his  neighbour’s  tempter.  He  damages

virtue  and  integrity;  he  may  even  draw

his brother into spiritual death. Scandal

is a grave offence if by deed or omission

another  is  deliberately  led  into  a  grave

offence. (CCC 2284)

And remember Jesus’ warning in Luke 17:1:

"Temptations  to  sin  are  sure  to  come;

but woe to him by whom they come!"

Saving  money  for  your  future  life  together  is

commendable,  but  moving  in  with  your  fiancé

is not the only way in which you can do so. You

could also find a roommate of your own sex or

move  in  with  your  parents  until  your  wedding

day.

Surely,  saving  a  few  bucks  is  not  worth  the

dishonour your parents will suffer if you follow

through  with  your  decision.  Nor  is  it  worth

sacrificing  your  commitment  to  live  according

to the teachings of Christ and his Church in your

preparation  for  marriage.  Trust  God  for  his

grace to see you through.

omission of eggs or dairy products.
